Brooke’s Baby Bump Pictures: New Holstein Lifestyle Maternity Session
I can’t think of a time I’ve been more excited for a friend! My dear friend Brooke brought back a special souvenir when we went to Mexico. That little souvenir was recently revealed at the gender reveal party we had for her. Baby Charlotte will be joining the world very soon. Brooke is due sometime in August so we made sure to get momma’s baby bump pictures in before her water breaks lol.
Brooke and I have been friends for over 14 years now and I’ve never seen her look so beautiful. She just radiates joy from her pretty little freckled face. :). I remember saying to her “can you believe we are here”? One day we are traveling to Vegas gett’n tipsy and the next we are capturing baby bump pictures. Ha ha… It’s so cool to experience a friend go from a young girl in her twenties to a soon to be momma in her 30’s. I love her so much and am so so thrilled for her and her husband Tony. They are going to be the best parents and there will definitely never be a dull moment. I just hope Char has their sense of humor lol.
Charlotte will be in good hands, between her parents and their goofy dogs she will be well taken care of. While we were doing baby bump pictures Gus (their bloodhound) decided he wanted in on the action and for a smidgen he stole the show. I just adore him and his wrinkly face! I had to move on though and so I shot the nursery. I love what Brooke has done with it. A refreshing soft palette of greens, blues and yellows color the room. It reminds me of the ocean, a wood cut shark and a small herd of sea turtles swim across the walls and the sea shell mobile they got in Mexico hangs over the crib where soon Charlotte will lay, so soft and pretty.
Brooke has the perfect little round belly and I love that I get to feel her tummy :)! I miss that most about being pregnant. lol Feeling your little one mov’n around in there is such a cool experience and it’s been so so long since I was able to do that, I’m glad I have a friend I can feel up(not in a creepy stalker kinda way) lol. No but seriously she looks amazing and I know we all can’t wait to meet baby Charlotte very soon! Thanks guys again for sharing this special time in your lives! xo-laurie marie
