26 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Place

26 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

We kept things local this week, heading to the Venice Beach area for our 26 week photo shoot. Upon driving by, it seemed perfectly clear to me that this aquatic mural would make the perfect compliment to my smurf-blue tights. This will likely be my last woven dress of the series, I’m guessing I’ll need to go strictly stretchy from here on out. Luckily my closet is well equipped!

20 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

20 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

This week marks the halfway point of my pregnancy, and I’m enjoying what’s generally billed as the easiest part of this crazy ride. The nausea has subsided, I’ve got a surge of energy lately, and it’s exciting to explore the forgotten depths of my closet as my belly continues to grow. All I can really say is that my life long addiction to knits is really paying off, and it’s possible I might make it all the way to the end without buying any proper maternity clothes.

17 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

17 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Here I am in one of my all-time favorite dresses, shot across the street from one of my favorite coffee shops in Eagle Rock, The Coffee Table. The dress is from the vintage section of the Topshop flagship store in London. That place is like heaven on a stick, I wish it was all available online for the non-local peeps.

16 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

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

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.
