Eight years ago, when I was pregnant with my daughter, smartphones didn’t exist. I remember my birthday present that year (which happened to coincide with my due date) being a “digital” camera. You know, a camera that didn’t use film. BRILLIANT CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY!
Looking back at photos from that pregnancy, I have exactly two pictures (both on film) of me being pregnant. I just didn’t take many photos, mainly because my camera was junk and film was expensive.
These days, thanks to my smartphone, I’m a bit addicted to snapping quick shots of myself at every stage in pregnancy. While some might think it’s a bit self absorbed, I think it’s fun to be able to look back at how I’ve grown, just how far I’ve come.
While I haven’t captured every single week since I started to show in this pregnancy, I’ve managed to capture some pretty fun shots of what this pregnancy was like.
My pregnancy, self portrait style:
I love these self portraits, I think they’re so fun to look through.
Do you find yourself taking impromptu photos of yourself and your pregnancy?
