I wanted to share some of the maternity photos I took of myself. These photos were taken at 31 weeks pregnant, about 2 months from our baby’s due date. I had a snow day the day I took them, and when I couldn’t get logged into my remote desktop at work for a little while, I decided to take advantage of the free time and bright light and do some maternity shots! Pro tip – snow days are great for indoor lighting. All of the sunshine bounces off the white on the ground outside, creating a lot more indoor light than usual.
The image above was inspired by this image that I found on Pinterest. I loved the idea of using a children’s book and I really wanted to do the photos on our bed with white bedding. My sweet grandmother gave a copy of Where the Wild Things Are to Connor for Christmas to read to our son, so using the book really added an extra special element to the photo. I was able to get all these shots using the self timer on my DSLR, as well as a tripod.
