It could happen at any moment! I’m 37 weeks this week! If this is my last blog post all of a sudden, you'll know why.
A few weekends ago we had maternity pictures taken. I had never actually planned on doing professional maternity pictures. I wasn’t really sure what we would do with them and I would rather take the time to have professional newborn photos done. My friend Jasmin convinced me though. She reminded me that this is my first baby and it will only happen once. She said she has known other moms who didn’t have them taken and regretted it. So I thought, you know what, this is my first baby and I should enjoy every second. So we asked our friend Gilbert Coombes to take them! I'm really glad we did.
We met Gilbert at Squaw Creek and had a blast. Gilbert had a special maternity dress for me to wear. It separates down the center so that we can take pictures of my bare belly in all its protruding glory. (Those pictures are not in the slideshow above.) With the “golden hour” lighting, the field and Gilbert’s artistic eye, he really captured some beautiful shots.
