Maternity Pictures

I wanted to get some maternity pictures done around 33 weeks because of how uncomfortable my pregnancy has been I knew sooner was better, just in case. I had this idea to do a lifestyle shoot at a snow cone place and James and I would take our own traditional pictures.
I searched for a photographer and found that most lifestyle photographers were way too expensive for just a maternity shoot. However, I found a photographer who had great pictures on her facebook. They were clear and high quality and had good composition and were edited well. All important things to me. She hadn't really done a lifestyle shoot before but I had a feeling she'd be able to pull it off. So we met at this cute little Snow Shack by my house one evening and this is the result. She did such a great job. I'm very happy with them.

Because we hired someone for the above pictures, I thought we could manage a few that were more traditional. Looking back, probably never again. Ellie does great with the timer on the camera, but getting a good shot and only getting to take one picture at a time was too time consuming. And the mosquitoes were eating me alive. I'm allergic to their bites too so the days following was me laying on the couch with ice both on my back and my legs. So thankful Ellie didn't get bit. Surprisingly!
And James and I didn't get a picture just the two of us. Oh well, right? *sad face*
34.3 weeks
