Maternity and Newborn Sessions

I'm quite late on posting this but I wanted to share a few of my favorites! All photos were taken by Kim Andera of Andera Photography and I cannot say enough great things about her!

We took the maternity pictures about a week before I went into labor so I'm glad we snuck them in. I love that they were so close to the delivery because I have some great photos of what I looked like right at the very end.

The newborn session was done right in our apartment which made the whole thing stress free for me. I pumped and painted my fingernails while most of them were being taken. It was so relaxing! Maverick pooped on one of the setups and then attempted to poop on daddy. He succeeded in pooping on mommy right at the very end but I don't think you can even notice. I just want to get giant prints of all of them to hang around our apartment. I smile every time I look at them!





















Love,
Mandy

Maverick's First Zoo Visit

We went to the local zoo on June 13 and we had so much fun! Maverick slept in the ring sling for most of our visit which we expected. When he was awake, he was so intent watching the animals! I think we have an animal lover on our hands.


One of the monkeys celebrating it's first birthday that weekend!




My favorite picture from that day! He was just staring at the tiger :) Babywearing is such a great way to bond and keep baby from getting overwhelmed in large crowds.



First time sitting in the stroller without his carseat. Let's just say this lasted about 5 minutes before he started screaming. We will stick to the ring sling or the carseat in the stroller for a little while longer!


Since the zoo is so close, I anticipate us making lots of trips there for him to see the animals! I can't wait to watch him learn and grow more excited with each visit.

Love,
Mandy
