No I am not your average run of the mill mom but I am a crazed picture hound. I love taking pictures and I love having my picture taken. I believe that a picture last forever even if your memory fades (that is of course if your house doesn’t burn down and they all get lost). Anyway I got an overwhelming response on the two pregnancy pics that I put up in a blog post so I figured I would give you guys the full on photo shoot. I was inspired by the Vanity Fair cover with Demi Moore when she was pregnant.
I truly believe on documenting everything through pictures and videos. Before my son was born I took pictures every single day of things that I was doing and when I got pregnant I took even more pictures. By the time my son had arrived I decided that I would document his entire first year of life in pictures. I set out to take a picture a day of him for a year and now three years later I have 10,000+ pictures of my son ( I told you I was photo crazed).
I would recommend that every pregnant woman do a pregnancy photo shoot. These photo shoots don’t have to cost you hundreds of dollars mine was actually free. I found my photographer on Myspace and to be safe I took a male friend with me. My photographer and his wife turned out to be top notch people and the pictures turned out great. Why you may ask was it free well he was building his portfolio and wanted to show a range of photos that he could do so he offered to do pregnancy photos for free. I am sure that all of you can probably find a new local photographer that will me willing to comp your pictures but if all else fail find a reasonable photographer and get them done. You won’t regret it.
(the photos may look like I am in topless but I promise you that I am not I had a tube top type bra on that they hid very well up under my arms)***If you are in the Bay Area I and want pics done I will give you my photographers information please just leave a comment and I will get back to you personally.
