Documenting the "Glow"12:54 PM
Pregnancy is such a special time (well, once you get past the vomiting & etc.), especially for your first child, and never more so than in those last few weeks before you deliver. You are just weeks away from meeting someone you’ll spend the rest of your life loving more than you can imagine!! I never did maternity photos, but I wish I had, especially with my first. (I was much cuter the first time around!) If you’re pregnant, or hope to be in the future, DO IT! I shot Tiffany's with my Nikon D80, but even if you just grab a friend and a basic point and shoot digital camera, take a second to snap a few shots. Not sure how to pose or what to do? Google maternity photography and you’ll have dozens of cute shots to replicate. Do it in a place you can feel comfortable, preferably with great natural light and especially with someone you can relax with. (Fore some great tips for the photographer, check out this article by the amazing Natalie Norton.) Don't worry about baring your belly if you're not comfortable with it... a fitted top looks just as cute! We don't all have adorable little buddha bellies, but that belly you're carrying around is perfect and beautifully shaped uniquely like your little one. While we don't always feel our most beautiful pregnant, just find some flattering angles (YES you do still have some!) and shoot away. It might take a bunch of tries to get it just right, but I promise you it will be worth it in the end!
