Although my son arrived 10 days overdue, the extra few days allowed me the opportunity to capture in images that magical, long anticipated LAST week of pregnancy. Thanks to my friend Jen Au, who was behind the camera, but as importantly, willing to whisk me to the hospital if (God forbid) baby came a knockin’!

The Volunteer Park Conservatory was (and still is) the perfect Holiday backdrop with all its lush greenery and Christmas-themed decor. And indeed this Valentina & Valentia 100% silk chiffon dress imbued me with feelings of a (pregnant) yuletide fairy.

Also donning Zara heels, Nadri earrings, Tiffany & Co rings, and a metal crown from Nasty Gal (similar here and here).

Merry Christmas, y’all!
