Sneak Peek: The Barnes Family

Raise your hand if you love to see pictures of yourself pregnant.  No hands.  Don't blame you.  I didn't really want pictures of myself when I was pregnant.  You feel fat and ugly and tired, and frankly it is hard to make the effort.  However, I can speak from experience, I wish I would have had some maternity pictures taken. I think I can count on 2 hands how many pictures I have from when I was pregnant (which is saying something because between 3 babies I was pregnant for 27 months!).

Julie contacted me a few months ago and was really struggling because she wanted family pictures, but was thinking of waiting until after the baby came (her 3rd baby).  I convinced her to go ahead and get them done beforehand so she would have some of herself pregnant.  I don't think she will regret it.  It was so fun to spend some time with her little family and hang out with them.

Julie, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and that even if you feel like you are big and tired (which you DO NOT look) you will look back on these pictures with love.  And that 4 years from now, you will be so glad that you captured that brief time in your life (like I wish I would have done instead of wondering what I looked like when I was pregnant).

Don't those pictures put you in a Christmasy mood?  Me too!  Time to start decking the halls!
