Design Aglow Diaries: New Orleans, LA to Wichita Falls, TX

Our morning started a bit late again in New Orleans, as we reloaded the dog and cat into the car and searched for Bourbon Street and Cafe du Monde. We grabbed a quick snap of both, but ended up bypassing beignets this time; something about a heap of fried dough and powdered sugar wasn’t the most appealing at 8 am with a long journey ahead. We promise we’ll try some next time though! As we made our way through Louisiana we watched the landscape turn from cityscape to barren and wintery trees, grooving along to some Duran Duran (yesterday was a 90’s kind of day). We also watched as a metal fire pit flew out of the back of someone’s trailer and beelined it's way to our car. We swerved, but unfortunately were attacked by part of the metal monstrosity and had to pull over to assess the damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt (except the car) and the police officer was quick to get to us in the middle of nowhere. An hour and a half later we were on the road again, a little shaken but with a newfound energy to keep going! Alas, we passed the Texas state line and made our way through Dallas, stopping for the night in a little town called Wichita Falls. We’re hoping to make some more progress tomorrow with a few of the setbacks we had today, but we’re well rested and ready to go. See you on #designaglowdiaries tomorrow! - Lauren & Carry

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.
