I had maternity photos taken last week by my very talented friend and photographer Shannon of Shannon Erickson Photography and thought I would share some of them with you! If you are pregnant and debating on whether or not to get maternity photos taken, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I never had maternity photos taken with my first baby and really wish I had. But I have the most beautiful photos from when I was pregnant with #2 and now I will always cherish these photos of me and baby #3.
This gorgeous maternity sash is from Kutie Tuties. But it’s more than a maternity sash. It can be a great newborn photo prop or a headband when she gets older! You must stop by the Kutie Tuties Etsy shop and see all of the cute baby girl accessories they have for sale like headbands, rompers, tutus and more!
Me and my boys! They never smile when I want them to but I still love this picture 🙂
I ordered these wooden alphabet name blocks from Lilly Letters Etsy Shop. I originally was going to buy a set of Alphabet blocks and paint them myself, but this shop only charges .60 a letter so it was much cheaper just to order the blocks I needed and get them custom painted by choosing from her large selection of permanent and non-toxic acrylic paints!
This blanket was crocheted by my grandmother and given to me when I was a baby! My mom saved it and gave it to me a couple weeks ago. The stitching is perfect and the quality of yarn is top notch. I wish she was still alive so we could crochet together.
I think this last picture is one of my favorites. This was taken in our backyard! I would have never thought of using the fence gate and vines as a backdrop but it was perfect. I am only 24 weeks pregnant in this photo so you can imagine how big I am going to be when I am close to 40 weeks. Yikes!
