My beautiful cousin Cara and her family came into town for Thanksgiving and I got to take their family portraits this evening in a nearby obliging field! Hehe :D (with hay bales! Yay!). Hanging out with them is always fun :D. So happy this worked out! Love y'all! <3

This was my first time to visit Trevor and Allix in Louisiana by myself! Though I was there for just one night, Allix and I had plenty of time to catch up, chill out, and go to Chick-fil-a and the grocery store together. Hehe :D. I'm really thankful I was able to make the trip and have one last bestie-hang-out-time before baby girl is out <3.

The evening of the day I arrived, Allix donned her flower crown her mother made two days before, her glorious PinkBlush dress, and we drove out to where their church meets on Sundays (The Wesley Center) to do her officially maternity shoot :D. It was such a beautiful place for it and the LIGHT was incredible <3.

Then before we headed back to the car, Allix noticed the glorious clouds behind us!! So, I was able to go down lower on the hill so you didn't see the buildings and the parking lot filled with cars and the result was this awesomeness!! :D

Then the next day, before I headed home that afternoon, we did a mini session in baby "E"s precious nursery :D :D <3 (Fun fact: the banners in the windows are parts of the banners from their wedding made up of special old dresses, sheets, etc… :D)

And of course Allixs old bookshelf filled with beautiful, darling books was my favorite part :D :D <3

The nursery has a subtle Rifle Paper Co. theme, by the way :D <3
