End of Summer Family/Maternity Photos

With today being the last day of August, it feels like summer is finally coming to an end.
And what an incredible summer it’s been!

Last week, my amazing friend Ali was sweet enough to take some maternity/family photos for us after I mentioned to her I wasn’t planning on doing maternity photos this time around. And I’m so glad she did because I’m absolutely in love with how they turned out! Not only did she manage to catch some amazing light, she also perfectly captured this season of life for our little family of three. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been pretty bad about getting many bump photos this time around, so I’m really glad she got some sweet ones that we can show baby #2 one day. But a big focus this summer has really been soaking up the one on one time we have left with Henry before he becomes a big brother. He’s at such a fun age right now and I’m so glad we’ll have these photos to look back on!

I had a hard time narrowing down the ones she took, so I decided just to share a bunch 🙂

His face here cracks me up 🙂

I posted that last photo on Instagram recently with a side by side comparison of Henry from the family photos we had taken last August. Last August, he wasn’t crawling yet and I remember really wanting to get photos taken before he became more mobile, which in hindsight was a smart thing to do 🙂 I loved how those end of summer photos my friend Ashley took turned out, and so it was really fun to have these photos taken a year later as you can really see just how much Henry’s grown and how our life has changed over past twelve months. (And it’s pretty incredible to think that by this time next year, our life will look completely different once again with two boys!) While I’m so looking forward to heading into fall with all the changes on the horizon, it’s nice to be able to reflect on what a wonderful summer it’s been and I’m so thankful to have these photos of such a special season of our life 🙂
