We are so lucky to have a close friend like Jaime Hayes to take such beautiful and memorable photos to capture our family’s most important milestones! She has been taking our photos for years, since I was pregnant with Kolton, and has always helped us to document important life events with her gorgeous images.
This pregnancy, I wanted to capture my bump with both family photos as well as some solo shots. At 35 weeks pregnant, we did our photo shoot in beautiful Santa Cruz at the Beach & Boardwalk. This is one of Kolton’s favorite places, and is special to Curtis and I as well (we were married in Santa Cruz and spend most of our quick getaways there).
Jaime also took some beautiful photos at a local park to show my growing bump.
I just love how they all turned out and can’t wait to share them with our baby girl when she gets older. As for now, I have already framed some and placed them in her bedroom. I want her to always know how excited we were to meet her and how special this pregnancy has been to our family.
I also want to include some photos that Jaime took while I was pregnant with Kolton back in 2012. I still get emotional when I look at them. They remind me of such a special time, and I am so grateful to have them to keep forever!
What family album would be complete without an adorable outtake?
