Maternity photo shoot

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.

Whaddya know.

    Fabulous shots! You’ll be sooooo happy you did this. My maternity photo is on my dresser where I put on my makeup each day and I smile to remember those glory days. You’re very beautiful!

    Awww, so glad you did this–I was kinda waiting for it! You guys took fabulous photos. Were they taken at different times or did you actually stop for a wardrobe and hairstyle change?

      We took them all at once, over the course of about an hour. All I did to “change” was wrap my scarf around my body and undo my braid. =)

        If I was more observant, I would have figured that out! It really looks like you changed your shirt. I considered you might have just taken your hair down, but thought it was impossible for it to look that good after having been up all day. Lucky!

      Aw, thanks Sydney! I actually feel pretty relaxed about everything. I always imagined I’d feel anxious anticipating the pain of labor, but God has been good in keeping anxiety far from my heart.
