Winter Miracle

Winter Miracle

I’ve always loved the idea of a maternity shoot in the snow…If you think this icy weather is not ideal for a maternity photo shoot, you should think again. The snow is the perfect backdrop, so white and pure all around. I honestly couldn’t image a better time to document this incredible period of my life.



And even though it was cold (and I obviously wouldn’t and I didn’t wear these heels in the snow!)—these bow heels are still my favorite holiday shoes! The bow and the color red are so festive, wouldn’t you agree?! For my 6 months maternity shoot I decided to wear a black, pleated dress from Closet London. I’ve been a fan of midi dresses for a very long time and this one is just fabulous! The embellished pleated skirt dress and its gold sequins will make you SPARKLE under the Christmas lights + it accentuates my growing bump beautifully!


So, here I am cradling my sweet miracle in the snow..I feel incredibly blessed this Season to expect another healthy baby boy in the Spring. My family and I are over the moon, and we are excited to share this beautiful journey with all of you!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a lovely Monday!

    Those heels are gorgeous, I have such a pair in green that I wear occasionally, the bow takes the shoes to another whole new level. Being pregnant is indeed an amazing miracle and am excited that you choose to share this journey with us. You look dashing!
