Casual Pregnancy Pictures

I really love capturing a moment. I love candid shots as well as shots which have been staged, what I don’t love, are the endless photos of me while pregnant that are, well, needless to say, unflattering. Am I alone on this one?

Some days I don’t even feel like putting on makeup and other days I feel like the most gorgeous glowing woman in the world (mostly thanks to my wonderful husband). But I wanted some casual pictures of us to capture our special time together, the time right before our first born is here.

I didn’t want to make a fuss about it, you know, plan a date, get all dolled up (even if I didn’t feel like it that day) and pose awkwardly in front of someone we don’t know. So instead we opted to do our own pictures (thank you self timer) to get a few pictures. I am really happy with how they turned out, mostly because, I am extremely comfortable in something that I wear almost all the time, I had a good night sleep the night before and woke up well rested, which allowed me to spontaneously decide to take some pictures, and because it is my husband and I, in our apartment, enjoying our time together (yes, we have beautiful white walls and HUGE windows which gives us the perfect lighting).

So here are a few of my favorites of our little family.

Thanks for reading!

Merry Christmas!

Merry ChristmasI hope every one of you is having a wonderful day where ever in the world you are.

Christmas this year isn’t too exciting for us but will nevertheless be a great few days spent together getting ready for our little boy. We decided this year not to visit family as it would require either an 8 hour drive across Germany or 8 hour flight to Canada, both of which, would be extremely uncomfortable for an 8 month pregnant woman. Instead we are having our own little Christmas, eating cheese fondue, making gingerbread houses, watching Christmas movies (obviously a Christmas Carol) and drinking hot chocolate.

Normally I am a Christmas freak! And I mean FREAK. I take out decorations November 1st and count down the days. But this year, it feels like part of our family is missing (our little boy) and the day that he joins us will feel more like Christmas than December 25th.

We are so excited for next year, to spend our first Christmas as our family of 3!

From us to you, Merry Christmas!
