Maternity photos… where to start? We wanted a few images to capture the beauty of my bump and the joy of our impending arrival of our baby girl. The more I contacted local photographers about maternity shoots, the more I became discouraged. Some just come right out and give you the price tag, while others seem to pull a bait and switch to get you in the door. “Oh sure, the session is $200!” Perfect, I thought. “…oh but you want to purchase images? Our basic image package starts at $500.” I’m sorry, what?! None of the images are included? *Sigh*

That’s when we got the bright idea to try the photos ourselves. I picked up a tripod, a remote for the shutter, and away we went. Cheers to a gorgeous Spring-like day with my husband and my baby girl bump.
