A couple weeks ago I requested that my Facebook friends send me that very first photo they have of meeting their babies immediately after delivery.
I put the photos together here on Being Pregnant and was pleasantly surprised when a whole bunch of women who hadn’t seen my request expressed regret that their photos hadn’t been included. So I decided to do a second edition and was shocked at how many women sent in photos.
Like I said the first time around, there is something so magical about the expression on a new mama’s face. Every single one of these photos is truly awesome. You can also look at them and get some great ideas for exactly where you want the photographer (your husband, mother or sister) to stand when your baby is born so you get the first photo of your dreams.
And, as always, if you’d like me to feature your first photo just email it to me at monica bielanko at yahoo dot com. Thanks to everyone who sent their photos in! If you sent one in and it isn’t featured here that means I’ll get it in the next edition. This might be my favorite thing I’ve done here on Being Pregnant. I can never look at too many birth photos. Sounds weird, but true! So as long as they let me and as long as y’all keep sending in photos, I’ll keep it That Very First Photo going.
Here they are:
