Yay!

I finally got my maternity photo shoot booked! We are doing next Wednesday morning.

We meant to do early May so that I wouldn't be too huge and uncomfortable, but the snow took so long to leave that this works out better! Now we can do something outdoors and at least things are turning green rather than still being brown.

Tomorrow my mission is to find a pretty top to wear! I'm doing dark jeans with a pretty spring-y top and possibly a cute maxi dress for some pics too. Hate to buy maternity stuff this close to the end of my last pregnancy, but I basically only fit in boring tshirts at this point.

This lady is just starting her photography business, so is doing the shoot for free Smile She also offered to do newborn shots for free. Maybe she won't be the greatest photographer, but I am excited nonetheless!

ETA: I have never had any nice maternity shots done before, so this is my very last chance! My last few weeks of being pregnant, EVER!

YAY!!!! So exciting! I did photos last time. I didn't wear anything fancy for my outdoor ones. Just jeans and a belly band over my top. I wanted to show off my belly. LOL. It was January so I had to keep closing my coat between shots!

I also had an indoor shoot in my living room.

I have a friend who's just starting out too and she's going to do some for me this time. I'm thinking next weekend but we'll see. I also have some newborn photos organized with another photographer. I make/sell hats and photo props. The woman is doing newborn shots of baby in some of my props and then she's keeping them in payment!

I tried making a slideshow of my favorite outdoor photos on PB, but I haven't used it much. Try this:

Here are the indoor ones I had done. The white skirt is the bottom of my wedding dress.

Cute shots! I have always wanted to do some and never have, so I'm looking forward to it.

I'm not sure what it was set to, so I just made it public. Try again!

Sandra, I hope your shoot goes well! It's awesome to get them done for free, even if they only get a couple of decent shots sounds like a good deal to me.

Biggrin Heather those are great pics!

Exciting!! I've never done maternity pictures - I don't even have wedding pictures aside from ONE around my house so I don't see myself displaying pictures of my Oompa Loompa-ness. But I do take a lot of casual ones for the baby book because my mom took ZERO with me and I hate that I have no idea what she looked like pregnant.

Good for you Sandra! That's so nice you are doing it for your final pregnancy. I haven't and I'm not doing a preg photoshoot. In some ways I regret it a little but like Ashley I know I wouldn't display them in my house so its kind of pointless.

Heather, I love your maternity photos. I especially love the outdoor ones. They are beautiful!
