    I set out to find some wildflowers with my little wild flower, close to home. (We’ll stretch our wings a bit farther when she gets older.) As we drifted through the blooming fields, I carried her in my Wildbird baby wrap. I absolutely love this wrap as it can grow with us from her newborn to toddler stage. We have the Stork-Chambray style and I love how minimal it is. The fabric is natural and breathable for those warm summer days. Lately, I have had my eye on this birdy. The peach color is perfect for the season. Baby Wearing Benefits There are so many benefits to wearing our babies. For one, it just…

    Welcome Kaia – Our Birth Story

    Spend time talking to your girl friends, mom, aunts and well…any woman who is a mother for that matter – when it comes to the birth of our babies, nothing really ever goes as planned! Maybe I was a little naive to believe mine would go any other way but picture perfect. I had a deposit in for a birth videographer, a photographer coming in for fresh 48s. Yet – I had to cancel all the photo ops as I underwent an emergency c-section. The last days leading up to giving birth were pretty agonizing for me. My body was at its absolute maximum capacity and there was no more…

    Our Maternity Session

    All Images By: Brianna Anderson Photography I love working with local Arizona maternity photographer Brianna Anderson. She has such a unique vision and is very direct in her approach during her photo sessions. Bri is all about sensuality and beauty of womanhood and pregnancy. She has this innate way of brining out the most romantic sides of her clients. Working with her energy is always a dream! Shop Similar Styles Here We are currently 27 weeks along and constantly dreaming about our baby girl. I can’t help but to constantly wonder – who will she be and what she will look like! Will and I have similar yet different features…

    Los Poblanos

    We spent a weekend in Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit Will’s parents and to go to the balloon festival. We spent a day over at Los Poblanos, which is a historic inn and organic farm. I absolutely fell in love with this charming place. From the architecture and design, to the gardens and lavender fields, to the guinea hens and llamas – this place is beyond dreamy and picturesque. Not only that – but the restaurants and food are exceptional. I didn’t know a place like this existed! I will definitely be planning a return visit to further enjoy this charming place.

    Moorten Botanical Garden x LuLu’s

    Hey hey beauties. You’re looking so sharp today. I’ll never desert you….these are things I whisper to my cacti plants. Will and I traveled to Palm Springs after our trip to Salvation Mountain and we made a stop at Moorten Botanical Garden. I would like to admit that we are actually really into plants. It is actually one of our favorite past times on the weekends to visit a local nursery and adopt a new plant. We love finding new additions to add to our house as we create our little jungalow together. There’s something just so beautiful about the life and personality each plant brings to the home. We…

  • Kate Nelle wearing Lovestitch Celine Dress at Salton Sea Beach in California


    We stumbled across the Salton Sea after our Salvation Mountain adventure. To our surprise, it was highly polluted and abandoned, except for the overgrown palm trees cascading the skyline. The light was so beautiful, between the setting sun and the rising moon, we couldn’t resist pulling over for a quick detour on our way to Palm Springs. I had packed this “Celine Dress” from Lovestitch Clothing. I love the effortlessly lightweight tencel fabric, as it feels cool even when it’s hot.  It’s not a maternity dress but it seems to fit me and my bump perfectly, so yay for that! I love not having to buy maternity clothes in hopes that…

    Salvation Mountain Maternity Shoot

    I have been wanting to visit Salvation Mountain in Niland, California for literally ten years, and we finally made the trip! When I found out I was pregnant, I knew we needed to capture some maternity pictures there and I’m so glad we did! I know I will treasure these pictures of me and baby girl for years to come, and I hope to print one and hang in her nursery. 🙂 To be honest, it was ridiculously hot here, and being pregnant only made the temperature that more uncomfortable! The 105 degree heat and piercing desert sun made it hard to really enjoy exploring this fascinating place, but we…

  • Los Olivos, California Elopement with Kate Nelle x Chard Photography

    Our Santa Barbara Elopement Pictures

    I am so excited to share with you our Santa Barbara elopement pictures we took with the incredibly talented Rich of Chard Photo! He was so amazing and fun to work with, and made the entire experience memorable. We ended up meeting Rich in Los Olivos, California, which by the way, is the cutest little wine town. We need to go back! Rich took us through the gorgeous rolling fields of gold, and we found a spot near Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch to take these elopement pictures. The light and the colors were so gorgeous, and these photos definitely do the landscape justice. We then hopped in the car and…

    My K-Beauty Inspired Natural Skin Care Routine

    Today I am sharing my natural skin care K-Beauty inspired routine and the organic products I use and love for fine lines and wrinkles, hydration and radiance. Our skin is the largest organ of our body. It is living and breathing, and although not a sponge, what we apply externally to our dermis, has the potential to become absorbed internally. Many of the products we use day to day, unknowingly contain toxic chemicals that can disrupt hormone function, affect our immune and reproductive systems, and even cause cancer. Which is why it is important to always read labels, know which ingredients to avoid, and stick to plant and fruit based, natural skin…

    Dear Baby Girl

    To our baby girl, You are finally here. I’ve felt your spirit strongly so many times. I’ve seen you in my dreams, running around in a diaper with soft curls of golden blonde hair, underneath trees of giant peonies. Every time I think of you, my heart feels full and I could cry, knowing one day soon, you will be mine. You will be ours. I finally found the father you deserve. He is good and he is so kind. I promise he will love you and take care of you, better than anyone I’ll ever know, because that’s how he takes care of me. You are so so lucky…
