I’m not gonna lie. One of the perks of being a photographer is that you can do a lot with whatcha got.
Tripod. Good camera+lenses. Wireless trigger. A studio.
During my previous 3 pregnancies a lot more bumpies were taken. Yes, hashtag bumpies. (It’s a yuppy sounding term, but it’s the best shortcut I know.) But I usually had my husband grab them with my phone once a week. Nothing fancy, just documentation to share with family and friends -and for myself.
This is my second self-portrait pregnancy session.
Though the frequency of bump-in-progress photos is fewer, I really do love how these have turned out and am looking forward to another shoot next month. (Insert beaming heart emoji.)
Can talk a little about this get up?
I found it at my *favorite* thrift store. It was an immediate gut purchase, “Oh, I gotta use this in some sort of shoot. I bet it’d make a killer boudoir session with a model.”
Yeah, it’s a bit retro. (Nothing bad about that.) But it had an elegance to it that I simply fell in love with.
Today as I was looking around for an outfit to wear I thought, “why the heck not?” Honestly I didn’t think it’d fit. Low and behold… happiness.
I do love maternity sessions. It’s rather odd doing my own, but I celebrate it! And, boy howdy, am I thankful for such an easy-breezy pregnancy. 10 1/2 weeks to go? Holy moly… the time is finally flying by.
