We have 6 weeks ’till D-Day and nesting has finally taken over our household. It’s taken a while to get here, but I’m finally feeling the urge to get everything ready for Gus/James’s arrival. His room is still both a brewery and an office and very much not a nursery. We don’t have a car seat or his bassinet — but 6 weeks is plenty of time to prep and gather and make his space perfect, right?

Being a visual person — putting together an inventory of my packing lists has always helped me out before going away on a trip. Creating a collage of sorts helps me organize a checklist so I can be sure that I have everything I need Also, that the stuff I choose to bring will all play nice with each other (i.e. I won’t realize that nothing I’ve packed goes together upon arrival)

In the end, the items may end up changing as we get closer to the big event, but for now this is what we’re lugging along with us to meet our little guy. 

Next on the list: a maternity shoot. These are some of my favorite sessions to shoot and getting to do one for myself feels so special.
