Best of Bare Feet on the Dashboard: Baby and Pregnancy Edition

Looking back over my Best of Bare Feet on the Dashboard series I realized I left out a crucial category, baby and pregnancy posts from the last 3 years.  We remedy that situation today.  I have so many baby and pregnancy posts I love so I’ll break them up by category below.  Enjoy and please feel free to share the love.

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?
