Baring My Belly

My amazingly talented friend, Val, has offered to do my maternity pictures!!!

I am so excited! She recommended that I be about 32 weeks or so.... which worked out perfectly because we've scheduled the sitting for Sunday April 13. I've seen some of the maternity pictures that she has taken in the past and they are absolutely beautiful! I'm so lucky to have the opportunity to have this time in our life captured on film- and captured by such a creative photographer!!!

I'm hoping that I am courageous enough to show a lil skin (tastefully, of course). I've always been pretty modest, but I am trying to get past that for this sitting and allow her to capture the essence of a pregnant woman's body. Keith told me he would go topless if I did! (Smiles)

I want to link to her professional website, but for some reason I'm unable to create links right now...
So, to check out her maternity pictures (or any of her pictures) go to her website- You can click on portfolio and then choose maternity.

Thanks Val, for finding time to take these pictures for us!!!
I can't wait!

Oh, you are so lucky. I would get pregnant again just to have Val take preggo picks of me...okay maybe that's not the only reason...but it's a good one!

Um. Yeah. Unique. :P

I wore a white t-shirt and jeans for my Deeder preggo photoshoot and the pictures turned out great. Unless I were one of those super skinny stretch mark free chicks--which I'm not (!!) I wouldn't want to show any more skin than my arms, for fear of later being too embarrassed to show anymore.

Good luck! And have fun. :)

I think materninty picturs are a great idea...I've never been brave enough. :)
I hope your pregnancy is going well. Mine is going well (not at all like last time), and I am ready to meet her! Only six more weeks...if I go full term. :)
Take care!!

it's me, Val said...

Cor, thank you!! I can't wait for this!! I have a feeling you will be able to bare some skin for me if Keith is all for it -- it will be 2 against 1!! Oh, and I usually win, too, hehe :c) I like Laura's idea of just a white tee and jeans. I like the simple au natural shots. Beth is inspired by our natural light idea. I'm already brainstorming and cannot wait! Thanks for saying such absolute sweet things about my work. It warms my heart and just makes me feel so good. Thanks, Cor. See you Sunday!!

Have a great time. I wish I had done that when I was pregnant, I don't have any belly shots at all until the day before LP was born. If I have another baby I definitely want to take my own and have professional ones done too.
