. . . for Lauren and Lauren: maternity pictures

June 13, 2013

maternity pictures


A week ago a good friend of mine took maternity pictures for us and I am so thankful for her! We decided to not pay for professional pictures and save that for our newborn ones and I feel like we still got professional looking pictures.  There are so many I love so be prepared for a little photo overload!


I LOVE these pictures with these booties because they were the first thing we bought for our baby and used them in our baby announcement
      
I can't wait to show our little girl these pictures some day and tell her how unbelievably excited we were to meet her.  I can't believe she will be here in less than 5 weeks!

These photos are wonderful! The forehead to forehead shots are my favorite!! So sweet. Makes me a little sad that I never took maternity photos...

Simply LKJ said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Money well saved. The photos are amazing, and nothing short of professional. The little booties make me want to cry and smile at the same time. One of the first gifts we received when I was pregnant with our first was a pair of hand knitted booties! They are safely tucked away in hopes a grandchild will wear them in the future. Now she just needs to hold out until July 18th ;-)
