Happy Friday Beauties! I’m so excited to share with you our first maternity shoot taken on the beautiful hills of San Jose and in our cozy home. I had always imagined what this shoot would be like and it turned out so much more beautiful than I could have hoped for. This is all thanks to our amazing wedding & lifestyle photographer Olivia of Olivia Richards Photography. Her photos have such a dreamy and pure essence about them that when I first saw her work, I knew we had to work together. This is one of three sets we did together and I love every single one of them. I can’t wait to share the remaining sets with you soon!

My husband doesn’t make a lot of appearances on the blog, so this is one of those few times where I had valid excuse to get him to be a part of a shoot. It’s a bit funny because after viewing the photos I realized that our outfits for this shoot were almost identical to our engagement except these have a lighter and more dreamy feel to them. For this shoot, I’m wearing a convertible maxi dress from Lulu’s! This dress is everything ladies. It’s so enchanting and there are at least 10 different ways to style it. It looks and feel luxurious yet it’s super affordable. Surprisingly, this is not a maternity dress but as you can see it’s very flattering in style and fit on a pregnant frame.

What do you think of these photos?
