Maternity Photos

This is going to be a picture heavy blog, but I just want to give you a little background first. I thought long and hard about maternity photos. I love the idea of them but they can be expensive and if they are too over-styled they can feel a bit cheesy. So, I drug my feet on actually getting them done until Andy said (because he knows me so well) if we are going to do them, we should do them right. He contacted a very talented photographer that he happens to work with at Hyundai. Vu worked with us to get the exact style and feel we wanted; you will notice the photos are all from our home. The outfit is one I have worn repeatedly this pregnancy. He even managed to have tons of natural light in the dead of winter! He did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience and the beautiful results. I'm so grateful to him for his hard work and talent and to my husband for setting the whole thing up. Feel free to check out Vu's other work here.

And without further adieu, here are our maternity photos taken at 36 weeks.

Can you believe this was taken in front of my bedroom window?!?!?!!

I can't wait to pass on my baby booties!

December called for a Christmas photo, and it had to include Christmas Pig.
An ornament from Andy's Mom, gifted to us at the shower.

And finally, because you know us better than this, here are some outtakes:

Vu told us how much his Lens cost, JUST the lens. I'll save you the heart attack and leave it private.
This is Pink Steele, move over Zoolander.
I found some tasty pastries in my kitchen, all that modeling called for a snack!
