Maternity photos are possibly one of my favorite things to photograph. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing like birth photography or even watching a baby hit all the milestones the first year. But baby belly photos just are so beautiful! I get to really be a portrait artist, be creative, show the natural beauty of pregnancy, all while adding my own personal touch. So… you can probably understand why I was thrilled when Rachel committed to documenting her pregnancy with a Baby Belly Progression Session! These sessions document the pregnancy with a monthly (or weekly) photo shoot, and after the baby is born, we have a brilliant art piece.
Rachel is also a photographer, so it’s only natural that we like to have a good time in the studio together. At the end of one of our photo sessions, we decided to play around a little bit and do a little pregnancy announcement. The gown she’s wearing makes her look like a princess, so I thought it would be fun to do a “Princess and the Pea” theme. It might be a little cheesy, but for a last minute, just-for-fun type of thing, I kind of enjoy it.
Oh, and about that gown… I made that! (Totally bragging on myself, yes, yes, I am…) The best part about all that hand stitching was having my husband model it while I designed! Hilarious! He would be a bit too embarrassed if I shared the picture of him wearing it, and I’m sure Rachel’s image does it more justice, so we’ll just leave it at that. 😉
