My Maternity Photos

Yesterday I hit 29 weeks pregnant. I can't believe I have 11 weeks left, it feels like I've been pregnant forever. It's funny, on facebook, someone will announce that they're pregnant, and it seems like the next month, they're in labor and having a baby. Meanwhile, when YOU'RE the one who's pregnant, it feel like years. 

A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I had my maternity photo shoot. I was 27 weeks, when you're obviously big enough to look pregnant, but you don't feel like a whale just yet.

I didn't want the cutesy maternity photos. You know, the heart over the belly, Daddy kissing the baby bump, the shoes on the belly. We did those last time with Ava, and while I think they're adorable, this time I wanted something different. I found this picture on Pinterest and knew it was the way I wanted to go. 

I hired my favorite make up artist, she's done my make up on a lot of my photoshoots (and did the make up in my blog profile pic) and I think she's awesome. Even hubby got a bit of concealer and bronzer :) The photographer came over to my neck of the woods, and went to the field that hubby and I had scouted out the week prior. And these are what we came up with. I adore them. 

Thanks for letting me share! Holy cow, I'm so freakin' excited to meet this kid.

It's funny that whenI read you wer 29 weeks I thought, "Holy cow! 29 weeks already!" And yes, I can think that because I'm not pregnant. It is so true that pregnancies last FOREVER when it's you that's pregnant.

The photos are great!

You are one SEXY mamacita!! Beautiful photos. I love the way they capture your love for each other and for your new baby. I love the first shot where he's just looking at your belly adoringly. So beautiful, and as stated above, way more memorable!

I love these! The first one especially, but they are all fabulous! I have wanted maternity pictures, but talked myself out of them every time because I just don't like the traditional ones. If we have another I am soo doing something more like this! Gorgeous!
