Maternity Session with Matthew J. Wagner

I have always thought there is something so beautiful about pregnancy. I think women look gorgeous pregnant and always knew that I would want to do maternity photos so that I could cherish the entire experience forever. I decided to do these photos at 37 weeks so that I would be “very pregnant” in the photos.   Matthew J. Wagner, a Connecticut based photographer, did a beautiful job making me feel comfortable and confident and making sure to photograph flattering and beautiful shots.  Being 9 months pregnant, knowing those “flattering” angles are super important!  Here are a few of my favorites.

Street Style | Bold Stripes

There is something about stripes that conveys power and strength. A perfectly striped blazer or bold striped dress is a great go-to killer work outfit that is anything but boring. This week’s Street Style features two totally different ways to wear stripes, along with bold accessories from no-one other than Halcyon Artistry!

I have always considered myself fashion forward. I can remember when I was in 7th grade, the highlight of my month was getting the Delia’s catalog and choosing the highest platform sneakers I could find. I was always fascinated with my mom’s 70’s pictures with her belly shirts, bell-bottoms and sky-high platforms.

Although some fashion is merely a trend (they may resurface!) such as bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, and leotards; some looks are here to stay. That is why I absolutely love trying new things like fun patterns, crazy head-pieces, and bold glasses. The spontaneity and edginess gives me a thrill. Some pieces and styles will never be out of style. Little Black Dresses. A perfect-fit blazer. Nude pumps. Vintage Chanel. Since my mom has always been very into fashion, she taught me an important lesson- only splurge on classic, never on trends. It’s ok to mix your Christian Louboutins worth more-than-your-laptop-stilettos with your Forever 21 skirt. Remix your look, have fun, and be you.

“I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes.”

Are you ready for our new #streetstyle post?  This week is all about the boots!  These boots are made for walkin’ and they are also made to look freakin adorable! 🙂  Fall activities call for fall attire and we decided that boots, floral, and layers are the best way to stay comfortable yet look fashionably chic.  Our goal with street style is to put together real, affordable looks for the every day fashion-obsesed girl.
