As of today I am 34 weeks pregnant. I can't even believe I'm typing that! It's been such an incredible experience and I can't believe this stage is almost coming to an end. I wanted to have maternity photos taken because I found it really important to document this time in our lives. I wanted us to be able to look back and remember how amazing this pregnancy has been and how in love we are. As well as how in love we are with this baby who isn't even born yet.
After working with Abi Q on this photo shoot, I knew she was the photographer for the job. Not only is she incredibly talented, a joy to work with and a whiz with light, she also happens to be 9 months pregnant herself! I loved the fact that while we were shooting we were able to relate on being pregnant and how we have been feeling. There is something that happens when you come across another pregnant gal. You instantly connect and there is an unspoken admiration. It only added to the maternity shoot experience. I adore her work so much that I knew no matter what, I would love the pictures.
I have to say, I always love having my photo taken. I am one of those people who can smile and pose all day long. But even someone like me can get nervous about taking photos (especially when you are 8 months pregnant!). Abi made me feel comfortable and confident. I am also SO glad Andrew was there to be in these photos with me. Also, I love him in that J Crew gray sweater. He's glowing, it must be the pregnancy. ;)
I wanted to share with you a few of my favorites from the session. I can't wait to frame them and I am so excited that we will be able to show our baby girl these photos in the future. It's pretty special.
