"Professional" Belly Shots

In lieu of paying a bazillion dollars for professional photographs of my belly...we did just buy a car you know...I decided to set up the tripod and give it a go myself.

I actually don't think they turned out that bad. I mean, clearly there is a blatant over use of Photoshopping here...but considering the cost...I'm pretty satisfied.

  1. For self-portrait shots, they look great! Obviously if you have a huge abundance of money to spend there is no substitute for professional pictures, but as someone who would never, say, display a giant picture of my pregnant belly on my wall... saving the $$ and taking them yourself (when they turn out so well) is a super idea.

  2. WOW - I thought the covered shots were cool, then I saw the bra/belly shots. Woman, you are courageous (And VERY beautiful, I might add). :-)

    Awesome job.

  5. You know, I thought about that, Kara; posting pics of me in a bra on my blog and on my Facebook. And then I realized two things;

    1) the bra actually cover more than most bikini tops that women wear

    2) I have never felt more beautiful and proud of my body than I do pregnant! I, who would never be caught by even my husband in a two piece bathing suit prior to being pregnant, am proud to show off my bigger than big belly :)

  6. I'm impressed! Self portraits are really, really tough for me, and I admire anyone who does them well. The last shot is my favorite.
