In November of 2012, about one month before our precious Jonah Alexander entered the world, we had maternity photos taken. Those photos are something that I hold near and dear to my heart and look back on fondly. When you take the time to realize what a woman's body goes through during pregnancy, it truly is amazing and a miracle.
I knew that I wanted to have a few maternity photos taken with this little peanut as well, but due to the pure craziness that is our life - there was just no time to schedule professional photos with another photographer. So, last night, I enlisted the help of my sister! I adjusted all the manual settings and taught her how to shift focus points. The resulting are some of our favorites from our mini photo shoot in our back yard. Of course, Jonah all but refused to be in any of the pictures with Mommy and Daddy, but we still got some cute ones of him by himself. Welcome to Toddlerhood, right? :) I hope that he cooperates enough to get some cute shots with his baby brother for the first time! We'll find out in only a few more weeks :) Tomorrow, I'll be 36 weeks...and I can't even believe it!
Did you have maternity photos taken with your pregnancies? I know it's something I'll always cherish. Now, if I could just take the plunge and hire a birth photographer!
