I knew I didn't have the energy for a full session so, instead, I grabbed my camera, set up my tripod, and opted for a few selfies. I shot them on the day I hit 36 weeks, and boy am I glad I did. Just a few days later, the leg/ankle/foot swelling reached a whole other level that now means I have to wear medical-grade compression socks all day long for the remainder of the pregnancy! Our freshly painted bedroom walls served as the perfect backdrop and after about half an hour of camera-remote clicking, I had quite a few photos I was pretty pleased with. Focus is tricky when you're shooting self-portraits but other than that minor detail (who needs in-focus photos anyway? I kid, I kid...), I'm happy with how they turned out.
Same pose, two ways. I have to say, I think I like them both, for different reasons.
Have you or would you do maternity photos, too?
