Announcement Photo Session

Of course one of the most fun bits about the first trimester – aside from the nausea and bloating – is mulling over just how you’re going to tell the broader world if WHEN you get to that point.

I spent innumerable hours on pinterest at the very beginning, looking up a) whether or not I could continue lifting (answer: yes, very) and b) what other people had done for announcements and when. There were a ton of ideas, some ridiculous, some crazy, some adorable. Few us. Except one, with two people out on a trail, holding a little backpack between them. And I thought yes that. And we went and found tiny hiking shoes. And then we waited.

And then Saturday we climbed the mountains (with a car) and scrambled over rocks (with our feet) until we found the right place, with the right light, and the right view.


And I took a bunch of photos, trying to get across a very specific feeling.


Okay, but not quite there.


Cute, but again – not quite there.


Aaand… yes.

I think that’s it.

Now I get to sit on this photo for another two weeks before we finally announce to the rest of our families and the broader <aka Facebook) world. Gaah.
