With this pregnancy being the last pregnancy I plan on having, I wanted to cherish each and every moment. I am lucky enough to have connections with many wonderful photographers and took the opportunity to make a business deal with a close photographer friend of mine. I gave him a great deal on a hand painted outdoor mural and he returned the favor by spending one day a week helping me document my baby bump. I spent time on Pinterest making an inspiration board. I didn't get in every single idea I thought of but here are my favorites from week 19-36. Our daughter and final piece to our family was born right on the 37 week mark! So here is my list of must take pics during your pregnancy.
Visually mark your weeks, chalk boards wok great for this.
Keep a current profile pic up on your social media sites.
Something glamorous but still you.
Dont forget to profile your growing bump!
Don't forget to show how genuienly excited you are!
Involve the whole family.
Something soft and lovely.
Shiny Confetti captures sparkle and fun.
Something enchanted, capture your inner princess.
BFF Bumps are a must!
High contrast of light and shadow make for beautiful bump profiles as your belly grows.
Belly close-up. Standing behind sheer curtains or lace provide a soft feminine touch.
Facebook banners are important too!
Celebrate the seasons.
You can be pregnant and fabulous!
Be the beauty queen of your baby shower.
Capture the journey. A simple photo from behind while walking a path is poetic of the journey your family is taking.
Use local scenery to your advantage.
Capture the intimacy.
Useing your personal bedroom is a good way to create a relaxed and intimate environment.
Be Sexy. After all, its how we got to this point, don't loose it!
Reflect on the past...present...and future. We re-shot our engagement pics on our anniversary.
Don't forget to do your belly cast and cherish your bump forever!
