I almost didn’t bother with doing ANY maternity photos for Vivienne’s pregnancy. We had done some DIY ones when I was pregnant with Nora, and I had been really happy with them. But this time around, we didn’t have much time for such things—plus, with Nora, I knew it would be even more challenging to try to do them with a self-timer and all—so I figured we would just let it go. It was Michael who convinced me that we should bite the bullet and hire someone, simply so we would never have any regrets about it.
And you know what else? They also ended up being our last family photos of just the three of us, so I’m really glad we went for it.
Our first attempt at the shoot got rained out with bad thunderstorms. Our second, although a beautiful evening, was ungodly hot and humid (that’s July for you!), but we managed. If it weren’t for my frizzy hair you’d probably never know, ha!
We did a package with our photographer for both maternity and newborn photos, so we ended up getting all of the pics back at the same time. I love them! Here are some maternity pics to share. Newborn pics later this week! :)
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.
