My Pregnancy Progression

Finally, a new post! As you can probably imagine, my life became quite hectic following Charlotte’s birth. Between moving, a new baby, and trying to keep Modernly Wed running, I have not been left with much time to dedicate to this blog. Now that Charlotte has some semblance of a sleep schedule, I have a free hour or two in the evening! Glorious.

This post is one I have been meaning to share for a while. During my pregnancy with Charlotte, I took photos every 2-3 weeks wearing the same dress with the intention of creating a progression composite as a memento. I found out I was pregnant VERY early, so my progression starts way back at four weeks, and ends with Charlotte in my arms at week forty.

The hardest part of this progression was finding a dress that would fit through my entire pregnancy, but still show the change in bump size. I happened across this blue and black striped stretchy maternity dress at H&M and purchased it one size up from my pre-pregnancy size. A belt and chip clips are holding the extra fabric in the early images… but boy did I need that fabric by the end!

Outdoor Maternity Session in Pennsylvania

This couple looks so adorable and happy in their outdoor maternity session! Captured by Custom Portraits by Charlene, Breanna and Anthony posed in a local field on a crisp April day for their simple shoot. It is hard to believe, but Breanna gave birth to her baby boy, Maximus (Max for short), one day after her due date and only eight days after this session!

A few words from Breanna on her pregnancy and new role as a mom:

I had an amazing, easy pregnancy with no complications. Charlene gave us an amazing maternity session where we both felt really comfortable. I absolutely love being a mom so much more than anything else. My little boy’s smile brightens my day every morning when I go to get him from his crib.
