I really want to spoil myself when I get pregnant and do all the things that I never did during my other pregnancies. I’ve always had an excuse not to indulge in some of the fun aspects of pregnancy, whether it be time or money.
I have been thinking hard about wanting to get some professional photos done. It will likely be my last pregnancy, my last time with a growing, gorgeous bump and as much as it sounds vain, I want to capture it all. We’re a family who never does professional photos, so this is way out of my comfort zone.
I have been looking at a lot of maternity photography styles and set-ups and props. I am not sure where I want the shoot to take place or how I want to dress up just yet. I will probably depend on the photographer too, but there are some super gorgeous examples I’ve been eying.
I am on the fence about this trend — the maternity sash. A gorgeous belt that you put on top of your pregnant belly which highlights the shape. Basically a headband/bow for your pregnant stomach! The photos look gorgeous, I can see how it adds to quality of the shoot, and there are some absolutely amazing sashes that are available from very talented Etsy sellers.
