Whimsical Maternity Shoot

Baby girl will be here in another 4 weeks. Whenever we voice the time remaining to each other we usually start chuckling like crazy people because that’s what we feel like! Here we are, kind of homeless (**but really not and so so grateful for that**) in our little apartment space with a built in bedroom for our toddler and a moses basket in our bedroom/office/nursery and we’re bringing another baby into the world! I guess everything feels a little discombobulated, crazy, but exactly as it should be at the same time.

As you might know I love pictures. I love taking, planning, styling, editing, and even being in them. I just LOVE capturing beautiful moments. So this pregnancy I decided to pay for a maternity photo session instead of a newborn session. This summer baby called for a whimsical maternity shoot complete with fields, picnic, bare feet, and wildflowers.

To start, we can’t forget about my first little love that came into this world last year. And I’ll admit here that I totally forgot his photo outfit at home! I couldn’t believe myself. Luckily I had him in this neutral outfit and we just went with it. Had it been something else I probably would’ve had to run to the nearest Target because we were 45 minutes from home! Haha, oh my goodness.

Petite Modern Life

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
