Crissy (who also blogs! check out here blog here!) and I always have fun times together! We met through Seth and Zach, who were friends in high school, and have only gotten closer and closer through time. She was SO sweet to offer to do some maternity pictures for me, our kids love each other and it was something fun to do during our play date! She is so creative with all her picture ideas too (do not give Pinterest any credit Crissy, take it all!).
A fun idea is to get maternity pictures with one of your biggest cravings. My craving, overall, this pregnancy has been chocolate milk. And yes, I DID drink it all when we were done using it!
It was a rushed morning that morning at our house so I went with a basic black top for these pics and accessorized with lots of Stella and Dot jewelry (that’s why I LOVE it…you can dress any outfit up so easily!). I’m wearing: Isadora Pearl Bib Necklace with LOTS of pave bracelets 😉
We took the pictures around Crissy’s house. They have SO many wonderful picture taking spots…their house is brick, they have a bench swing out front, TONS of plants and trees, and a play ground across the street. No wonder she does like daily photo shoots with her kids!
30 Weeks Pregnant
I think my favorites are with the brick wall…I love it!!!
Mom captured amazing family ones so it worked out well that Zach couldn’t (and wouldn’t have wanted to) be there for the shoot with Crissy. We focused on one of just me with my baby belly and ones of Kye and me together!
Another creative idea…picture with a sign (which Seth altered to be more fitting for me being pregnant!)
Bump Ahead 😉
While we took pictures Titus was napping and the other three kids played beautifully we only had to chase them down a couple of times 🙂 Kye has a BLAST with Stevie and Neela and told us that Stevie is his friend and Neela is his girlfriend. Such a player! I LOVE this picture of Kye and Stevie and Zach LOVED it too when he saw it 🙂
I’m not as good behind a camera as Crissy (plus she has Seth who is awesome while I have Zach…who is not as amazing behind a camera either…) plus she’s not really far enough along for a legit maternity photo shoot. However, we snapped a few anyway and they turned out cute!
Trying to get some with the girls
Gave up on the kids and just went for the solo ones!
about 20 weeks pregnant I think?
I’m always envious of her natural beauty! She doesn’t need any makeup!!!
my favorite 🙂
Stevie, Neela, Titus, Olive, Kye and Blitzen sure are lucky to have such hotties as moms huh? 🙂
Thanks again Crissy for the great pictures and super fun time! We are such an awesome photography/child watching team!!! Can’t wait to be taking some of our sweet new babies soon!!
I love the black and white close up of you and Kye!! You look awesome!
These are awesome!
Oh how sweet! I love them all! ;0)
