JAM Maternity BW cover 1

Pregnancy. What a special time.  A time to cherish, enjoy, remember… Yes, we’ve all heard it over-and-over again and although it’s true, this is not always easily done. Work, having other little ones, feeling less than “glowing”… all of these things can make it a little difficult to stop and enjoy these 9 months of growing another human. Now, post baby number 3, I’m looking back at all our pregnancies and I’ve come up with a little “pregnancy bucket list”…

Aug 1, 2017
JAM Milk bath 7

Pregnancy circa 2016 / 2017 and Milk Bath Maternity Shoots are all the rage. I completely get the appeal… Unleashing your inner Cleopatra in a time when you are creating life; why not? At 1st I was on the fence; not sure if I should take the milky plunge but then I came across the most beautiful purple roses and I simply couldn’t resist. The purple had me and although I never liked purple much it would become a re-occurring…

Maternity shoots are usually all about the belly, the mommy and the love between the couple that helped create this new little human. When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…

A while back I shared my essential checklist for all things Mama will be needing during her hospital stay. Today we focus on baby and what to pack in that little hospital bag for baby… 1st you’ll need a bag. Baby goodies are tiny so you won’t need an entire suitcase. A large overnight or weekend duffle works well. My choice……
