Eleanor’s Complete Baby Bump Series

Our second daughter Eleanor was born December 20th, 2013.  Since December I have been updating folks about my belly bump series and photos of Eleanor on my facebook account and personal side project Blooms in June but thought I would share my entire series here.  I have been slowly getting back into the swing of things and trying to get back to our “normal life” but I have found that there is no going back to what use to be and now we are trying to find a new normal.  Juggling photoshoots, childcare, video shoots, editing, changing diapers, changing sheets, and cleaning is a lot of work.  No wonder there is an established “maternity leave” in our society.  When I had Ada I was blessed to have 16 weeks of maternity leave.  This time around I am working for myself so I started back working around 6 weeks and never really got that “maternity leave” because I had Ada to take care of as well.  Bless those who have multiples, lots of babies and toddlers running around, or go back to work full time after 6 weeks.  Those women are strong.  I haven’t had a ton of time to blog and post my latest photography work besides on my photography facebook account but I thought I would take a few minutes and post my entire Belly Bump Series.

Week 23

We spent last week visting Chad’s parents in Houston, TX.  Chad and I stayed one night at a very nice bed and breakfast downtown: La Maison In Midtown which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Houston.  The prices were very reasonable and it was so much nicer than staying at a hotel.  We wandered around Midtown and the Art District and found this awesome wall.  Even though I was sick most of the week we still had a great time with family and we got to swim at least once a day everyday in his parents awesome pool!

Belly Bump Series Take 2.

I have announced everywhere on social media now that Chad and I are expecting our second girl at the end of December so it’s about time that I announced on here about the news.  We are really excited and we are so glad Ada will have a little sister.

We have gotten requests to do another Belly Bump Series and so we decided to take photos every week again but we are changing it up a little.  We started taking photos at Week 18 and I am now 22 weeks along.  It seemed a little exhausting to do this again this go around but it’s a fun project for Chad and I to work on together and I know I will love looking back at these photos.

 Presenting Baby Girl #2 Belly Bump Series.
