I can’t believe it’s been so long since I shared portraits of people! Sometimes it just feels so “same old, same old.” But I really wanted to be the one to share these adorable pictures of my friend Jamie, who blogs at C.R.A.F.T. I got to know her almost a year ago, and it was so fun to get to know another local Austin blogger. She is just one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I know. I’d heard all about how she met her husband, their wedding and travels, and of course one wonders when there might be a little one joining the mix. Around the end of August, I noticed her sharing some ideas on her blog that got me thinking…”I wonder if she is expecting.” She posted about Gender Reveal Party Ideas, and I actually wrote in the comments on the blog post:

Is this a hidden announcement, friend;) These are all cute ideas.

She wrote me back and said, YES! We are expecting!  She did her own gender reveal party, and found she’s expecting a boy!  You must also check out her adorable nursery!

I’d met her husband in passing a few times before, but it was fun to get to know him better, and see their sweetness at this fun and exciting time in their lives. It’s such a special time. She still has 8 weeks to go, and I had to giggle a little to myself when she said how big she was, and was wondering if she’d get that much bigger.



I said without hesitation.

I haven’t taken maternity pictures in a loooong time, they are kinda tricky, in my opinion. Only so many “poses” that work. But Jamie is so gorgeous and willing to do anything, that made is very easy for me! Here are just a few of my favorites:

We were all laughing as Andy tried to carefully prop the blocks on Jamie’s tummy. Her giggles made it bounce all around! baby blocks maternity couples maternity pictures

Andy took this fun pic of Jamie and I that I posted on Instagram:
