As the one who is frequently behind the camera doing the photo shoot, I don’t think I’ve ever been the subject of a planned photo shoot. (To read tales of my aversion to having a lens pointed at me, I point you back here and here.) However, I also love using photography to document my life, and since having a baby is kind of a big milestone type event in one’s life (kinda), when my friend Jessica offered to take some pregnancy pictures of Adam and me I said “yes.” I knew it might be a slightly painful and awkward experience, but I also knew I’d be grateful to have them one day.
Anyway, today I wanted to share my favorite shots and say thank you Jessica! I’m so glad you took these. You did a great job telling us what to do and making us feel non-awkward!
It turns out having your picture taken doesn’t hurt as much as I thought it would.
