I have a strong stance on maternity photos - I 110% wanted them and I wasn't going to take no for an answer. (I had the same stance on our engagement photos!) My husband doesn't enjoy getting his photo taken at all, but luckily he is a pretty great husband and let's me call the shots every once in a while. (In plus, he knew how much I loved photography before he married me!)
Luckily, our wedding photographer offers a 30-minute mini-session for her past clients twice a year. And it just so happened the date she picked to do them was right after my 32 weeks of being pregnant! The perfect time for maternity photos!
(And yes - if your photographer knows what they are doing - 30 minutes is plenty of time for a session!)
We booked the first session of the day and got to shooting!
I absolutely loved these trees with the beautiful flowers!
And this tree...and the background trees....LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
I absolutely adore these photos and that it captures the love and joy we have for this tiny human growing inside of me. I look forward to the day we can show these to our little daughter - point to my stomach - and say "that's YOU"!
