My Maternity Photo Shoot – Part 1

37 Weeks 
My sweet friends Sydney and Raychel took maternity photos for me, first at the Dallas Arboretum, then with Jed at White Rock Lake and our home.  In retrospect we should have done it before I started to resemble a house, but I’m still so glad to have them.  Both ladies are super talented and teaching themselves to be photographers.  This first round is from Sydney, and are just a few of my favorites.  She edited some of them, and then I tweaked some using Picnik.      

 Looking at pictures of yourself at nine months pregnant is a bit humbling, because you really are as big as you feel.  On the other hand, I love having these pictures of our little family before we meet our Baby Bun.  We are nervous and excited and waiting patiently for our new addition.

 We tried not to be too cheesy.  I started to giggle whenever we would strike a goofy pose.  I think these all turned our really well.  The sun was SUPER bright, so there were some shadows, but these look as natural as you can look posing in a field of wildflowers with your husband.

Do you schedule family photo shoots?

    You look so pretty! I’m about half an hour east of Dallas in Rockwall. We did a ton of maternity pictures, it was fun to do and look back on. We do family photos every 6 months or so.

    Becca, you look beautiful! I love maternity shoots and hope to have one too once I’m a bit further along. :)

    Also, I don’t normally do this because I don’t want to be spammy on other peoples blogs! BUT, I have two giveaways this week, both pregnancy/baby related: The Pregnancy Companion (book) and Peekabooby nursing covers. I thought you might be interested… Hope you don’t think I’m spamming here. I just genuinely love both these products and thought you’d like to know!! :)
