our family (of four) in marfa, texas

when our dear friend jesse took these pictures of us i had no idea i was pregnant. the fact that our littlest baby was in marfa with us dividing and multiplying makes the already over the top beautiful trip even more special. what's even more strange is that jesse knew i was pregnant before i did. she point blank asked me on the trip and i said no. yes, i was taking more naps, but who doesn't nap on vacation when their toddler is asleep? honestly, i didn't know until i came back a few days later. i can't help but think this baby is infused with the magic of the vast and still landscape that is marfa.

i am now thirteen weeks along and we are so excited that we will have a new little baby in our home. i'm still scheming up ways to document my pregnancy (i'm not showing just yet) and i can't wait to share more thoughts, but for now, some moments of contentedness in texas. there are so many that i love that i'm going to break them up into two posts.



































thank you so much jesse and whitney for capturing our family of four for the first time. we love you and feel so blessed that you are part of our family!
