Casual & Pregnant




I thought I would share a couple of pictures of me pregnant with you. These were taken back in early February - I was about 7.5 months. Our good friend Anna took them, and lucky for us she shot our wedding as well so she kind of has become our in-house photographer. Just kidding, but she has captured the biggest moments in our lives so it is fun to share them with you. We didn't do any of the naked belly shots, or even couple shots, everything was super casual, taken in our apt. on a Sunday morning. It was nice, Patrick left us to have our girl time and we just sat and chatted and laughed the whole time. I can't stress enough how important it is to be comfortable around your photographer - especially for your wedding! The top pictures were a series of fun digital shots taken in our bedroom in front of our super sweet wood paneling and the bottom picture Anna took in film (which I love, you just can't got wrong with film).

I have to admit - I miss my pregnant belly, I LOVED being pregnant! Of course it has nothing on having our little girl in the world with us, but the belly is lots of fun!

I could see how you'd like being pregnant — you wear it well! photos are so pretty. And I totally agree about finding the right photographer. I became friends with our wedding photographer and I'd love to have her chronicle the next life changing event.
