bump photos

I tried my hand at some DIY maternity photos and it was a semi-success! I only say semi because a photographer working with a tripod and remote just can’t produce the same work as a photographer free to interact with and react to her subjects. Overall though, I’m pleased with the finished photos! I was considering hiring another photographer to take some for us (hello there, Aunt Kay!) but ultimately decided that I would prefer a full shoot when Ros is on the outside; for maternity I just wanted a handful of print-worthy photos to hang with our engagement and wedding ones. That is, whenever I get around to actually printing any of those…

We used the vein of granite by my parents’ property as the backdrop and the blanket you see in a couple of shots is a family heirloom on my dad’s side. This Georgia December has been particularly warm so we didn’t have to bundle up as I had feared. We had a fun afternoon joking around as we ran back and forth from the camera, racing against a dying battery (someone please come find my charger before I get hysterical). My Canon was a trooper and held on until I attempted to look through the photos at the very end – win! And honestly, as up & down as I’ve been lately it was a miracle we didn’t have a “I’m so faaaaaat!” “No, you’re pregnant,” meltdown in there somewhere – double win!

  1. I love the one where you’re wrapped in the quilt together. These will be treasured photos! And about the hair… be prepared for it to fall out in large handfuls a month or two after the birth. I freaked out when that happened because I didn’t know it would happen! I thought I was going bald… :) At that point, treat yourself to a trim with a good stylist. It’ll make you feel better.
