Confession: I never saw myself doing a maternity photo session. Frankly, I thought it seemed a little unnecessary and not really worth the expense as you prepare to bring a child into the world.
Reality: I found a wonderful photographer in the area, with a very competitive price, AND she let’s you keep the CD of photos. (I’m amazed how many places don’t give you that option!)
So alas, my husband and I ventured out on a beautiful fall evening to capture some images of ‘just the two of us’ one last time, with lots of love going to baby bump, of course! I brought along some balloons to play off of the concept/catch phrase ‘ready to pop’! (Which, FYI, isn’t something I recommend actually saying to a pregnant woman…like, ever. ;))
This is my favorite:
Shirt: Old Navy (non-maternity, I’m ready to wear it ‘as it should be’ post baby!), Jeans: Motherhood, Shoes: Steve Madden via Von Maur, Jewelry: Cookie Lee
Such pretty fall colors:
Sending love to baby:
Aaron is already telling us both funny stories. Many more of those to come!
Just me and the bump:
In the words of every eye doctor, better here:
Just a few more days until we find out which ‘balloon’ is the winner.
Thank you Sarah at Footprints and Glitter for capturing such fun images for us!
