Every time I’m pregnant, I think about taking portraits. This time around, I got serious. This will likely be our last- no more chances to say ‘next time’! I’m used to taking the photos- I thought this might be tricky… so I called my sister for help.
I positioned and set the lights. My sister directed me on body placement and angled the camera. A very special ‘Thanks!’ to her for making this a reality rather than a missed opportunity!
When taking maternity portraits, I usually tell moms the ideal time frame is between 30-35 weeks. That’s when the belly is big enough to be dramatic, but usually before too much swelling or discomfort is happening. In my case, we took these when I was 29.5 weeks. Clearly my belly was not hiding!
Our FIFTH baby is on his way, and we are just as excited as the first time. I can’t wait to meet him and enjoy holding him on the OUTSIDE!
