Est. 2012 Tickled Blue Fresh. Creative. Fun


My Maternity journey-{Charleston sc maternity and newborn photographer}

It all began with this little announcement waaaaay back in November…(my hubby managed to get out of all photos except this announcement one, but rest assured, he’ll be in many of the photos once she arrives!!)


Then I turned 23 weeks and started to get a little bit of a bump so the camera came out:


By 27 weeks, miss Hallie was growing and I was in the ‘cute bump’ phase of pregnancy. Enough for people to recognize it’s a baby bump, not just too many cookies and small enough to not be uncomfortable for me just yet.

At 31 weeks, I did this belly shot just for fun…(moms view)

By 33 weeks, the bump had grown tremendously and I enlisted my hubby for some downtown maternity photos. I’m so glad we did these!

Just a few weeks later at 36 weeks pregnant, I set up the self timer again and got these to do some before/after once Hallie arrives. I can’t wait to try these again WITH her!

I’m now just days away from meeting her and know she could come at any time really.  I can’t believe how fast my second pregnancy has flown by. I’m so thankful I documented it, even if most of it was using the self timer b/c like I always say, pregnancy is a blip in time when you look back at it. Even while still pregnant, I can say that! The day I found out in October seems like ages ago!! I’m in the totally uncomfortable and ready to pop phase right now, BUT  truly am amazed that a body can do something like this and grow an actual little person. I feel blessed to have made it this far and can’t wait to meet this sweet baby girl inside my belly. Stay tuned for photos of her outside of my belly! I’m sure I’ll have lots to share….
