I wanted to record this pregnancy as much as possible. I'm not sure if this will be my last one or not. With Paige I took regular belly pictures but never took any maternity pictures. I hardly ever showed my face in belly pictures either. This time I made the choice to show my face in each and every belly picture that was posted along with my bump updates. I love looking at them already and seeing how my whole body has changed and adapted to growing a human. I also wanted maternity pictures. I didn't particularly want to pay a professional to take some pictures as I didn't think I'd feel comfortable enough in front of the camera so I asked Mark to take some for me. We also had a professional shoot done when Paige was 3 months and I hated every single picture so I think this put me off quite a bit.
I jumped on Pinterest and Google and looked at a few ideas for poses that I liked. Then we set about taking some photos. They didn't turn out exactly as I wanted but they were never going to as Mark isn't used to taking maternity pictures and to be honest doesn't really like taking pictures. But I think we got a few good ones and I am some what happy with how they turned out.
Below are a few of the pictures, I didn't want to bore you with all of them!
I didn't want anything fancy, in fact the best pictures I liked were very simple. I have said to Mark that if we were to have another child I'd defiantly want some professional maternity pictures doing. I also really wanted to include Paige in these pictures but she wasn't having any of it at all.
I still have a few more weeks left so do still have opportunities to take a few more pictures but for now I am happy with what we got.
Did you have any maternity taken? Was it worth it?
