Maternity Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago, my good friend Shirley offered to take a few maternity photos of Eric and I. She wanted to use some of the photos for decoration at my book shower (which she also helped host - love you Shirls). A couple of you noticed the photos in the background of the post about the shower and asked to see more. And I figured, who am I to deny the people what they want? So, without further ado:


The truth is that I'm not really that into maternity photo shoots, so I'm not sure I would have taken any except that they were wanted for my shower. But now I am SO glad we took a few. I mean, there will only be a few times in my life that I have a belly like this (or 10! We want to compete with the Duggars.) so it's fun to commemorate it through pictures. Also, Shirley is a great photographer (check out her site!) and of course the pictures turned out perfectly (shameless friend-flaunting: she specializes in newborns so if you're in the OKC area, check her out).

Happy Weekend, internet friends.

  12. These are GORGEOUS. Such a cute couple, and that is the absolute perfect dress for maternity photos - so chic and flattering. And how great you know someone who's a pro with newborn photos!

    I wasn't so sure about this maternity photo shoot thing myself (my husband was even less sure, ha), but I'm glad we did them - we have so few nice photos of us as a couple, other than wedding/engagement shots, so it was fun to have a reason to take some around town at places that are special to us. Plus it really is nice to document that bump - it's a unique time in your life that really is short (even though it feels long at the time).

  13. These are beautiful! You are gorgeous in them! I am really loving the black and white ones. You are going to be so happy you have these down the road. We took a few when I was pregnant and it is so nice to look back on them!

  14. She did a great job! These are beautiful and tasteful (I've seen too many maternity shoots reach uncomfortable levels). I'm sure you will always be happy to have these photos in the years to come.

  18. Great photos! I'm glad that things worked out!! Once a colleague from undergrad offered to do my engagement photos, and then she wanted $100 for them. Oh, and most the photos were unusable because of lighting issues. But anyway. Thanks for sharing these with us :)

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
