Maternity Session

I wanted to share some of our maternity photos, even though Harlow is 16 months old. Never too late, right? We took the photos at my dad’s lake, by the same person/my friend  (Free Byrd) who did our gender reveal photos, and they turned out so well.

Labor Day Weekend

Long weekends are always the best because I feel like we can be productive and still have time to do fun activities, like go to the lake.
