Maternity Leave Announcement

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I'm on maternity leave!

Yes, my little bundle of joy and sleepless nights will be arriving in a few short weeks, so it's time for me to put my feet up and chill out!

I'm excited to be adding another baby to my family and I will be returning in February 2016 for you.

It will be so exciting to see how some of your little one's have grown up and I REALLY can't wait to introduce baby number three to you all!!

Are you loving on my maternity photo, like I am?!

Typically, I do my best to stay behind the camera - even though I know my kids need photos of me with them - but whilst I had Tennille staying at my home for a big 3-day newborn photography convention "The Baby Summit", she convinced me it would be fun to drag myself out of bed at 4am for a sunrise photo session.

And she was right!

I love, seriously love, what she captured for me, and I can look at this image and see an incredible 'baby bod'!

Surprisingly, considering I was the only one just about totally naked on the beach at sunrise, I was actually not as cold as I thought I would be!  Little bub truly is a tiny hot oven, and I actually ended up really enjoying the experience.

The crisp morning, and the stunning sunrise were a dream and as the early risers of the day started to trickle on to the beach for their early morning walks, we continued photographing while the golden hour gave us some beautiful, soft light for some of the most gorgeous photographs I have had taken of my pregnant self!

Most definitely an experience I can recommend to anyone, and most definitely alot more fun than attempting selfies in the bathroom or trying to get my husband to take a decent shot at home!

So, this is me at 35 weeks - 5 weeks to go, give or take - and I'm really ready to meet this baby.

I shall return to my business in February 2016, as long as everything goes well with breastfeeding.

There is so much to look forward to in the new year for my business, and I'll be excited to share it with you all!

But first, hang in with me and I'll have a blog post coming in the next few weeks introducing you to the new member of the Read family.
