DIY Maternity Pictures

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?
 
Thanks for reading,

  2. You look absolutely stunning! I did a post about maternity pictures we had taken by a local photographer, which I loved (once I'd weeded out the beached whale-esque ones!) It's nice that you have ones with your face in too, I'm so sick of taking bump selfies!xxx

  6. Err...one word: STUNNING! The camera actually loves you! I had some professional photos taken when I was pregnant with F, but that was only because my next door neighbour and good friend happened to be a professional photographer. It's lovely to have them now, to look back on, but I don't think I'd have bothered if she hadn't persuaded me. Although I've taken more photos of the bump this time around I'd like to have more taken of me, especially of me with my daughter in the pictures as well. They're lovely to look back on and funny when you can't remember ever having such a big bump. Thank you for linking p to the #BlogBumpClub again! xx
