My Postpartum Journey to My Prepregnacy Body

It’s hard to believe that seven months have passed since we welcomed our little angel into the world. Although these last few months have been life’s most fulfilling, they have also been the hardest. From an unexpected and painful c-section birth and recovery to baby’s hospitalization to a pandemic, time is flying by although I…

How to Execute an At Home Photoshoot

Now, more than ever, I am acutely aware of the many luxuries I once took for granted, including having a professional take photographs for my blog or to help document life’s milestones. For all of my new moms, I specifically empathize with your feeling of disappointment that this is not how you envisioned your first…

Pretty in Pleats

With everything going on in the world, it’s hard to think about anything Covid unrelated. But, this week, perhaps due to the gorgeous Spring weather and my return from maternity leave, I decided it’s time to get back to some sort of normal, albeit altered. So, I’m excited to finally share a pretty pleated look…

Trend Alert: The Shirt Jacket

Fashion week, both on and off the runways, solidified our need to try out a new trend – the shirt-jacket. But before we get into the details of this week’s look, I can’t tell you how excited I am to share my first fashion post since the baby. There’s no doubt that life and my…

Newborn Lifestyle Shoot

It’s incredible how tiny newborns are and how quickly they grow (sigh).

Maternity Shoot | Look 3

I saved the best look for last. My third look for the maternity shoot was completely impromptu, but might just be my favorite of the three. I had the idea of using fabric to create a couture look and Steph arrived on the day of the shoot with an arm full of black tulle. I’ve…

Maternity Shoot | Look 2

For my second look, I wanted a clean silhouette that emphasized the bump, but slightly more glamorous than the first. To create contrast against the grey backdrop, I opted for a white off -the-shoulder bodycon midi maternity dress with ruched sides from ASOS. I was a bit nervous about the idea of a tight white…

Maternity Shoot | Look 1

I am so excited to share the first of three looks from my maternity shoot. Who knew that less than one week after these photos were taken baby Rafa would be making his big debut! Steph and I had been talking about a maternity shoot for some time, but between our hectic work schedules and…

MY Maternity Style

Our babymoon to Lisbon would not have been complete without a maternity shoot at Praça do Comércio. So, early on our last Friday morning in Lisbon, before the business day and tourist crowds would swarm, I met Sandra and Miguel at the center of Praça do Comércio for a shoot in my favorite maternity look…
