Maternity Photos + The Best Maternity Jeans Ever!


I went back to work on Monday after having 3 entire weeks off! It wasn't perfect but it was wonderful. Slow mornings. Nesting. Parks. Snuggles. De-cluttering. Bonding. We made the best of it! I only have about 4 weeks before I'm off for maternity leave, which is just bananas to me! I cannot wait and then at the same time I feel very unprepared for this next chapter. Becoming a family of 6 seems very big and although I'm less stressed about a lot of things like what we need for this baby boy and even childbirth, I can't help but worry about how our family will adjust. How long will it be before we find our new normal? It feels like we just found one!!! Seasons, right? We go through seasons in life and currently, it seems like the rhythm of our seasons is quick. Can anyone else relate?

Regardless of all of the things happening right now, I did find time to take maternity photos before going back to work at this spot I've been dying to get photos in front of. This mural went up just a few months ago. It's on the side of a liquor store but it's so colorful and nostalgic. Orange, CA isn't technically my hometown but I've mostly lived here since 3rd grade, so it's as hometown as I can get. I had so much fun taking these!

Thanks for stopping by & if you're up for it, enjoy all the photos! Oh, and if you're in the market for maternity jeans, scroll to the bottom for my recommendation.
I chose to hold this Dallas Starbucks mug in my photos because one morning Josh and I randomly both looked at each other and said we like the name Dallas. This coffee cup inspired an entire conversation about whether or not we should change the name we chose so many months ago. In the end, we decided to stick with our original pick, which might be coming in an entirely different blog post. 










This being my fourth pregnancy, the third one requiring maternity clothes, I feel pretty confident in recommending what I consider THE BEST MATERNITY JEANS EVER! I found them when I was pregnant with Payton (our first) and have continued to buy them for every pregnancy since. You can find the MAMA Skinny Jeans at H & M. I love them because they are zero percent mom jean and hold everything in. Plus, one or two pair last an entire pregnancy and I wear them at least 4 times a week. Just sayin', if you're in the market for some affordable maternity jeans, check these out. 
Also, if you find yourself in Orange, CA, stop by Hoove's Liquor on the corner of Walnut & Glassell to snap a few of your own Insta-worthy shots. And who knows, the owner himself might come out and join you. 

What's your take on maternity photos + jeans? What have you loved or what are you looking for? Shoot, just share your favorite jeans whether maternity or not! We all need at least one good pair in our lives. Can you feel me?
