sunday portraits // week 8

This week I wanted to be a little more intentional so I took portraits of two of the women I cherish in my life.

Above is Alexia, who was my doula with Harper (you can see glimpses of her in my birth photos) and has become not only Harper's Godmother but one of my best friends. I adore our easy going, comfortable and real conversation. Like we were having this entire coffee date at Pinewood Social over lattes and a giant side plate of bacon.

This is Lauren. Her and I are pregnant together for the second time. Our babes are the best of friends (we hope, it's hard to tell these days). Not only have we been pregnant at the same time twice now, our husbands are great friends too! Her and her husband challenge and inspire us to always choose our must - but also use wisdom and practicality in doing so. I love her minimalistic approach to life and art. Her watercolor art is phenomenal!

My little baby bump is GROWING! I mean like really growing, today I ate almost twice as much as Tyler for dinner.

hope you're always surrounded by people who inspire you to be a better you.
