Our Last Minute Maternity Photoshoot

Now we can remember this belly forever!

I hadn’t planned on getting professional maternity photos taken, but when an aspiring photographer friend offered to do a practice shoot with us on a sunny afternoon, I couldn’t help but say yes!  Originally I was thinking, “what would I do with maternity photos?”  Would I really want my giant belly and all that extra weight framed and hanging on our walls?

Turns out the answer was a loud and clear, YES!  I believe most maternity photos are taken between weeks 32 and 36, but we didn’t end up doing these until week 37!  Better late than never, right?  It just makes the bump that much more…visible.

I think pregnancy is beautiful, and I am so glad that we ended up taking these photos to remember this special time in our lives.  Below are my favorites from the shoot!

A million thanks to my friend Kelsey Moll for taking these.  I think she has a very successful photography career ahead of her!

Did you get maternity photos taken?  Why or why not?
