In my last pregnancy update post (at 34 weeks), I mentioned how I was pretty sure we were going to pass on having maternity photos taken this time around. With my pregnancy with Nora, we DIYed them (and I was happy!) but things were decidedly more complicated this time around since we’d have a nearly-3-year-old to wrangle. We didn’t have time to be out and about, messing around with tripods, self-timers, remotes, etc.
But then I hit publish on the post, and Michael read it. He brought up the subject and told me he didn’t agree with me. He wanted to make sure we weren’t going to have any regrets. And given that this very well may be our last baby… I couldn’t help but admit that he had a point.
I reached out to the photographer we are planning to use for newborn/family photos after the birth to see if she could add on a maternity session for us. Truthfully, it was a bit more than I would’ve ideally wanted to spend, but… I’m never going to be pregnant (at the very least, not with this baby) again. So we went for it.
We were supposed to have the photos taken last Wednesday, but we were rained out. Crazy thunder and lightning and downpours. (By the way… rainiest.summer.ever.) But we gave it another go on Sunday night and we lucked out. Hot and humid, yes, but we had a little sun and NO RAIN.
We’re not expecting all of the photos to be ready for a while yet, but the photographer shared with us two sneak peeks so far:
We totally bribed Nora with fruit snacks again. She was like a puppy performing tricks! But hey, no shame!
I can’t wait to see the rest.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 31 and have been married to Michael for five years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
