Back in May, Darren and I went on our babymoon in the Amalfi coast and had our maternity photos taken at sunrise in Positano. While planning for the trip we had a tough time deciding when the best time was for us to go. After some research we found that recommendations for traveling were best during the second trimester into the beginning of the third. Personally, I wanted to wait for the bump to get a tad bigger for photos but Darren worried that the further along I got, the more strenuous it would be on my body and I'm glad I listened to him. I was 25 weeks going on 26 and was still able to walk and sight seen comfortably but had we waited, walking would have been a challenge as we did a lot of that!
On me: dress - my own design. On Darren: Saks Fifth suit, Charles Tyrwhitt shirt, Ted Baker bowtie, Allen Edmonds shoes

At the time we hadn't revealed the gender of the baby but I chose to wear a blue dress as a subtle hint for when we shared our photos. Being the procrastinator that I am, I made the dress one week before the trip and it nearly drove me crazy as I worked on it day in day out! We did two looks and can't wait to share the second look on the next blog post! Stay tuned!
