Maternity with the Family …and flower crowns, of course! This was it. This was the Pinterest inspired maternity shoot I’d been dreaming about ever since my very first positive pregnancy test. Almost 5 years ago. My first due date was in July so I knew it would be warm and I could take pictures outside.

Mommy & Me | Mother’s Day 2020 Matching with my mini me will never get old… to me, at least. Maybe to her! But I found us both these sweet navy and white gingham sundresses weeks, if not months ago. I knew that I wanted to wear them for Mother’s Day pics with Lillian. That
