Plant-based Pregnancy: 29 weeks pregnant, 3rd trimester

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.

The works.

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.Kelly 29 weeks md 1-2Kelly 29 weeks md 4Kelly 29 weeks md 1Kelly 29 weeks md 7Kelly 29 weeks md 9Kelly 29 weeks md 12

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.
