Maternity Photoshoot

Hi everyone-

I decided to share some of my maternity pictures with you. I was 7 months pregnant with a bump that I felt was really hard to photograph. I decided to do a small maternity shoot in Lake Tahoe, California because with the timing of my pregnancy and  my move I wanted to capture a few memories there. I am now living back home in Kauai, Hawaii where I was born and raised. I am thrilled to be having our baby here as well.  I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant with a due date of December 28th, 2016. We are so excited to meet our sweet baby girl.

After traveling to a few different countries for work (and a little play) while pregnant I am more than happy to be on island and resting for the last weeks of my pregnancy. I've worked the last few months- traveling to the West Indies for Ana Cheri's 2017 Calendar shoot. Then, I went back to Nevada where I had conquered my fully booked wedding season. After, I quit my job at MAC cosmetics (which was very hard to do) and traveled to Greece where my boyfriend plays professional basketball.

Now, I'm in Hawaii waiting on my baby girl to arrive. I've gained 45 lbs so far and she is weighing in at 4.6 oz. I've been lathering my body in coconut oil, Clarins body oil, and Bio Oil to try to avoid stretch marks which has worked thus far. I am just now getting to the point where I am uncomfortable   all the time. I also can't seem to relieve any of my lower back pain.

Over the past 8 months I've really got to know what has worked for me during this pregnancy and what hasn't. Including easy everyday makeup, hair, the most flattering/comfortable clothes, shoes & foods. Although, I find myself not wearing any makeup on a day to day basis now that i've been pregnant. My skin has been amazing the last few months so i'm enjoying being as natural as possible. Besides brows, brows always.

The day of my photoshoot I had one of my very talented girlfriends Jenay Duckett glam me. It was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I felt so good, she nailed it. We did a few different looks as the day went on but ended with this subtle smokey eye.
To create this glam we used:

Armani luminous silk foundation
Becca liquid illuminator in Moonstone
Kevyn Aucoin concealer in SX8 
NARS radiant creamy concealer in Custard 
Anastasia beverly hills brow wiz in Caramel 
Modern Renaissance palette
Viseart 01 neutral matte palette 
NARS madly blush 
Kevyn Aucoin celestial powder 
NYX natural lip liner 
Marc Jacobs Sugar Sugar gloss
