I recently had my family + maternity shoot and I’m obsessed with these photos! Photos were taken by my wonderful friend Laura Lopez of Lulu Lopez Photography at the Menil Collection. When it came time to choose what to wear I had several things to think about.

  1. I’m 30 weeks pregnant – there’s that!
  2. It’s a family shoot, so colors, patterns and style was a huge factor
  3. It’s July. In Houston. So it’s extremely HOT

I went with Lauren Conrad’s new Maternity collection. Her line is super cute, light-weight fabric and there are different styles to choose from. It also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! Bonus points!

The light weight fabric was perfect for the hot and humid Houston weather. But it was also good for my psoriasis flare ups. Since I currently have some flare ups on my elbows, the fabric didn’t irritate them. YAY!
