Whoever thought of babymoon should be awarded! The purpose of a babymoon is to spend quality time with your partner to relax before the baby arrives. And Steve and I did just that for our babymoon because our life as Maddie and Steve will be long gone come Emma’s arrival!
We decided to do a weekend trip to Wilmington, NC for our babymoon. It was our first time in Wilmington and Wrightsville beach, and we fell in love! It was super relaxing to spend the weekend lounging at the beach, splashing in the water, and talking about us and our near future with Emma. A change of scene from our every day life was definitely needed, and we were able to really connect as a couple. It’s been nonstop on the go for us, so having this quality time before the baby’s arrival was essential. We also ate some really good foods in Wilmington, and that’s always a plus! 🙂
While we were at the beach, we decided to take advantage of the scenery and shoot my maternity photos. I’ve been contemplating a lot on how I wanted the maternity photos to look like… I wanted to be comfortable in my new body and embrace my belly because I think pregnancy is one of the beautiful looks for a woman. I definitely wanted to show my bare belly and at the same time reflect my own personal style. I made a flower crown with my favorite flower, baby’s breath and chose a few different outfits. Although we didn’t hire a professional photographer and did a DIY photo shoot, it turned out amazing! Steve did a great job capturing the style I was envisioning – his photography skill is improving every day, so talented! Here are my favorite photos from the shoot. I was just starting my 33 weeks. Enjoy!
