As you may know, Ryan and I are expecting our first baby who is due on September 12th, which is less than a month away! We had maternity pictures taken on August 8th when I was exactly 35 weeks pregnant with little Jaxon Michael Ward =)
A very nice family owns this gorgeous property in Stayton, Oregon that we raided for the evening to get these amazing photos! I feel incredibly blessed that one of my dearest friends is a professional photographer. Thank you Ashley Sturm Photography for capturing this moment in our pregnancy journey!
This blue dress was from Mapel Boutique in Portland, Oregon. Not maternity, but it did the job!
Ryan and I made this little burlap and linen banner for Jaxon’s nursery using sponge letters and blue paint
The grey dress was a find from Motherhood Maternity, which has been my go-to store for several months now!
As clueless first time parents, we’ve been reading up on how to Be Prepared for a newborn!
This was from our 19 week ultrasound when we found out the gender, and that he was looking good and healthy!
We’re obsessed with his baby Nike shoes! So miniature and adorable =)
All the nursery and baby essentials are purchased, the final touches are happening in the nursery… so now all we need is our baby! We couldn’t be more excited to meet him in a few weeks =) Thanks again Ashley for the amazing pictures!! We absolutely love them!
