Maternity photos

by purelytwins

Today I am sharing my maternity photos with you. This has been a very special pregnancy for me so far and I wanted these special baby bump moments to remember it.

I was luckily enough to have an amazing twin sister to take the pictures. I was planning on using a photographer for it but our budget was already tight. Michelle offered to take them for me. You’re the best sis!! You really helped capture this special moment for me and helped make me feel likeΒ super gorgeous mama-to-be. Thank you! xo

We ended up taking these maternity pictures on two different weekends as the weather was not cooperating. And of course Jax was involved in some just like with our pregnancy announcement. Although this time he wasn’t as cooperative so I knew we wouldn’t get any shots of him in his big brother outfit. Overall, I am very happy with the final results and now have some special memories of my first baby bump πŸ™‚

Hope you don’t mind me sharing them here on the blog…as it’s our live life diary in a way.

Getting closer and closer each month. We are so ready to have our baby girl in our arms! But until then, there’s nothing quite like having a big baby bump and we are so happy to have these moments in time captured with our maternity pictures.

I think Michelle did a wonderful job with these and you look amazing! It’s cute to see Jax involved too. I have a professional maternity shoot booked later this month, but we took some natural bump shots when we were on holiday last month. I think that the natural shots are best.

yes they are πŸ™‚ enjoy your photo later this month!

Wonderful pictures, Lori (and Michelle)! I missed out on a maternity shoot and I rely on random phone shots I did throughout my pregnancy to remind me what I looked like when I pregnant. Actually, we were about to do a shoot (finally) on a Monday when I would have been 38w3d, but she decided to come 38w1d πŸ˜› I guess Hannah didn’t want pictures of herself on the inside either.
So I’m glad Michelle was able to help you out with this and not let you miss the opportunity πŸ™‚

Love all of them, but my absolute favorite is the family one in front of the fireplace! I can just see the exact same picture but with your baby in it. In fact, you should replicate that picture once she gets here πŸ™‚
