So recently I had some gorgeous pregnancy photos taken. I was sceptical at first as I didn’t have them taken with my little man (first child) and felt a little guilty (mummy guilt) about having them done with my little miss and not with my little man, however a lovely friend of mine is a photographer and asked if she could take some photos of me.
After much trepidation – as with most pregnant women, I don’t feel sexy or attractive and still carry the ‘mummy guilt’ of doing the photos with one and not the other. I accepted.
The photos are amazing!
I cannot recommend having pregnancy photos taken enough.
Yes I still felt unattractive, big tummy, dermatitis, I happen to have a cold sore, bloating, kankles etc but, my friend included my little man in the photos also which are super cute, having him involved with holding my tummy and kissing it made it all very special.
She has a wonderful eye for detail and captured these very special moments.
I’m currently 34 weeks pregnant and was not only able to get some amazing photos of my bump, but also of my little man sitting with my bump and being affectionate towards it.
If you get the opportunity I highly recommend you get find photos taken, professionally or not and they don’t have to be in underwear etc, I was fully clothed.
My friend who took mine I also highly recommend, not only did she help me to feel at ease – I’m certainly not a poser and generally feel awkward having photos taken, but she managed to capture moments that are natural. Me and my little man interacting and playing which I really like rather than perfectly posed.
These times are special and I think it’s nice to have something for them, not only memories but something a little more.
If you would like your pregnancy captured in gorgeous natural photos, Please contact Motherhood in Focus
At the moment you can see her photos in an online gallery through Pixiset.
Or email her for a chat to either discuss a possible photo shoot or options. Either way, if I have another child – I will defiantly have more photos and memories capture these special moments.
