I like how I said I wasn’t going to blog much about my pregnancy, but the past few posts have just been about that. But I’m sure you’ll like this one, since a couple of weeks ago I had a good friend visiting and she just happened to be a photographer 😉 You’ve definitely seen her work before since she did our first homecoming and trash the dress shoot, while we were in Hawai’i.
OK. So, I’m not a huge of maternity shoots and I have my reasons which I’ll keep to myself so I don’t go pooping on people’s parades. All I have to say for maternity shoots is, “to each their own”. And I’m absolutely horrible when it comes to posing, it’s awkward and I’m not a fan. It’s better when someone tells you what to do. I can’t do serious poses because I think it’s the funniest thing to do and I always start laughing. Regardless of not really wanting to do one, I knew it would be good to have pictures on hand during my first pregnancy especially since I didn’t really do the whole “bumpdate” pictures.
Another reason why I nearly didn’t do them that day was that I was just tired and lazy. The third trimester is something else, everyone! You have your first trimester, you generally feel like crap and glued to a bed for most of it. The second trimester is the reprieve (sometimes) from all of that and you get a kickstart in the energy department (maybe). And then third comes along, where it has been many nights with very little sleep and just a constant state of being uncomfortable. So, I mustered up as much energy as I could, got ready and walked around the center with my lovely friend in tow. And as soon as I got home, I changed back into my sweats and laid back down on the couch. To me, that’s an extremely productive day!
I’m really happy with how they turned out, I already ordered some prints to hang somewhere in this house. Let me tell you, this is the most done up I’ve been since the Submarine Birthday Ball we attended back in April.
It was a fun time walking around my new home and dodging all the many tour groups and the occasional bicycler. But look at that, you can’t even tell from the pictures!
Huge thank you to my dear friend, Asia, for not only visiting and staying with us for a few days but snapping these shots for me!
