Documenting The Bump: 17 Photos From My Maternity Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago I shared with you some really inspiring maternity photos as I was gearing up for my maternity shoot, and stalking Pinterest. Well, mission accomplished! I usually am not a fan of pictures of myself EVER, so this was the first time I decided to document the bump. With it being our last, I figured, better now than never right? I also was super-excited to get some professional family shots since we NEVER have before. I know. Our oldest is almost 10 so this was a must.

After weeks of figuring out outfits (all the details in the slideshow!)  and searching for inspiration I am happy to say I  think it was a success and was excited when I got them back from my oh-so-fabulous + amazing photographer, Kim Flores of Whimsy Baby Photo. Side note: Having an amazing photographer really helps get the job done.

So, take a peek yourself! Browse through to see my family and bump style. Who knows, maybe they will help inspire your next photo shoot.  I’ve included some tips too for when it comes time to document your bump. Happy viewing!

    round! I feel like the camera added ten pounds to this picture. Or maybe I just like to tell myself that.

    A little over half way there, I decided to take my maternity photos early because, you just never know what could happen and with my history, I didn't want to miss out!

    As you can see, sans headband, my little Kennadi was over it when it came time for her close-up.

    Taken in the early morning, I love how the sun is shining through. Taking photos outside is a great way to capture some beautiful natural light.

    The entire inspiration for the photos came from Zoe's romper. I pulled the colors from it for the rest of us. I think it helps to base your wardrobe off one major print vs. everyone wearing a similar style + print.

    Romper from Modcloth
    And my favorite, her cowboy boots from Lulus
  • I Pinned It! 14 of 17
    I Pinned It!
    Another pose I saw on Pinterest and just couldn't wait to try. It really helps when it comes time to shooting when you are full of ideas rather than repeating the same poses over and over.

    I loved using this antique chair in the photos. It just so happened it matched us too!

    Cropping an image can totally change the photo. I love that you don't see our faces in this one. A sweet moment between Mr. Darling + I.

    Even though she did a good job through the hour session, she was over it by the time we were done!
