Maternity photos!!

A good friend of mine is friends with a fantastic photographer from Philadelphia, Emily B. Wilson.  Emily was planning on being up in the Boston area just before Ladybug's due date and offered to take maternity pictures for us.  If you'll recall, I went the DIY route for my maternity pictures with Little G, but that was before we had a toddler in the mix. 

I'm so pleased with these pictures and so glad we got to take them before it was too late!

Little G was acting his age through most of the photo shoot...which meant running around and not wanting to be held back by mommy and daddy.  But as you can see, he's a total camera ham!  He just didn't want to be tied down to us.  But she got some great shots of the three of us too, which is a total testament to how great she is to work with.

In these photos, I am 38 weeks, 5 days pregnant...but Ladybug decided to show up a mere 5 days after these were taken!

I have to mention, I was DREADING going to this photo shoot because I was uncomfortable and I no longer felt good about my body.  While I have always said I never feel more comfortable with my body than when I am very pregnant, there has always been a point in my pregnancies that I have passed that level of bliss and moved on to the oh-my-gosh-I'm-gigantic phase.  I was so close to cancelling this photo shoot on numerous occasions and I am so glad I didn't.  Not only did Emily do an amazing job capturing my family, but she made me feel so incredibly comfortable.  She truly is a professional and I can only hope that her business takes her far!

Go check her out!!
