My Babymoon Shoot

My husband and I spent a lovely week in Turks & Caicos, home to Grace Bay Beach, the most beautiful beach in the world. I’ve never seen such soft white sand and beautiful crystal clear waters, where there’s no seaweed or rocks in sight.

That’s right, Akhil and I are happy to share that we are expecting our first child this December!

I remember the day we found out like it was yesterday. Days leading up to it, I knew something was off. My body is generally clockwork and to spare you the details, it wasn’t ticking like the clock I had always known. I took a test the day before my expected period and it came out negative. I took one again the next morning – the type of tests where a positive pregnancy result has two lines and a negative result has only one line. I saw one solid line and a very very very faint (emphasis on the very) line in the second window. I thought nothing of it, but decided to google it anyway, where the first google hit said this… Read More
