A SUN & SPARROW JOURNEY from Fallon, a mommy-to-be // 

Life can change faster than you think is possible. It’s hard to believe that three years to the day after my husband Drew and I met in Santa Monica, we’ll be expecting a wonderful son to join our family.  Our pregnancy journey has certainly had its ups and downs.  When my husband and I first started trying, I got pregnant really quickly. I knew how common miscarriage was, but I didn’t think I would have any problems.  Within in the first 10 weeks of that pregnancy we had a miscarriage.  Words cannot describe how shocking and awful it was.  A month later, I felt ready to start trying again and once again, I got pregnant right away. Ten weeks later almost the same thing happened.  Even though I knew this can happens to so many women, I felt like something was wrong with me and we decided to take a break from trying.
After a 4 month break we got pregnant again.  This time felt different. Its amazing how mothers can be so intuitive.  The only up and down we’re focused on now is the ever growing (and kicking!) bump inside me.  We are both scared (me of labor, Drew of diapers) and thrilled to become new loving parents, and we can’t wait to help our son grow up into a great man.  We can’t wait to see him walk, hear him talk, watch him get into trouble with his “fur sister” Sierra the husky, and then have him realize how so very dearly his parents love him and will appreciate every moment with him.  But we’ll have to wait, a little less than two more months, for our family to grow and this parenting adventure to begin.

FROM THE MOMMY TO BE //  Jared and I met in high school, but started dating in our mid-twenties.  After dating for seven years, we were married in June of 2017 in Los Cabos, Mexico.  We decided to wait a few months to try and get pregnant, and on our first real month of trying in November 2017 we did it! We were both shocked at how quickly it happened for us, but absolutely overjoyed.  Being pregnant has been the most beautiful and wonderful experience of my life. I have enjoyed every second of being pregnant, even with all the aches and pains. Watching my body grow and create new life amazes me every day, which is why it was so important to me to capture the way I look with photographs, so that I can always look back on this time in our lives. I am so excited to become a mommy! I have always loved children and have been surrounded by babies my whole life. Sometimes I still cannot believe its my turn to be a mom! I am most excited for that very first moment after our little girl is born when I get to hold her and look into her eyes for the first time.  I also cannot wait to see Jared become a daddy.  I know he is going to be amazing and I already find myself falling more and more in love with him every day.   I am also excited to watch our little Luciana grow into her own person and see the type of person she will become.

FROM OUR MOMMY // Scott and I met online in Spring of 2014, and little did we know that a month after our wedding in October 2017, we would be blessed with our little boy. The last 8 months have been a complete whirlwind of settling into married life while preparing to become parents at the same time. In the midst of the whirlwind, our baby boy has been the constant joy in our lives. Every kick, roll and hiccup reminds us of how blessed we are that he arrived so quickly to us. We’ve been so lucky to have so many people, including grandparents, family and friends share in our complete joy. We can’t wait to meet him and experience this next stage of our lives together!
