21 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

21 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Each week I’m growing a little bigger, and ever more thankful for the healthy collection of knit maxi dresses I’ve collected over the years. This ensemble is a little more special than previous weeks only because I’m sporting the desert photo top I designed last year for Hi! Expectation’s spring 2013 collection. The photographic landscape and lack of color make it the perfect top to throw over a brightly printed maxi dress. Mixing prints is where it’s at. And let’s be honest – it always feels good to be able to wear one of your own designs.

18 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

18 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Once again we returned to the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles to shoot against one of the many painted walls you can find in that neighborhood. The weather was gorgeous, and so sunny that I couldn’t even remove my sunglasses to take a decent picture. My bump is still pretty small here, and probably looks more like a beer belly to those who don’t know me, but I’m super excited to see it growing.

This week we returned to the fertile walls of the Downtown LA Arts District for more great mural options. As we were shooting, an entourage of five tricked-out [and identical] Dodge Chargers pulled up and served as an audience, and patiently waited for us to do our thing. I think they may have been the artists, because as soon as we were done they swooped in and took their own photos in front of the same wall.

15 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Thanks to more rainy weekends, a trip to NY and a few bad colds, we didn’t have another chance to shoot until week 15. It’s not easy pretending to be a model during your first trimester, I’ll tell you that much. This week we headed downtown to check out the Arts District, which resulted in a plethora of location options for future weeks. When I saw this fiery red mural I knew it was the one I had to start with.
