Maternity Photos

Today I took a chance and did something I thought I'd never do... I had maternity photos taken. We were supposed to have done this about a month ago, at the u/s boutique we had been to, but between bed rest and Ian's busy work schedule, we never got around to it. I wasn't disappointed because I wasn't truly comfortable with the thought of someone taking pictures of my pregnant belly, but when another opportunity arose, I immediately jumped at it.

A sweet friend of ours, Ursula, who I've known pretty much since I moved here has been dabbling in photography for the past few years. She takes beautiful photographs of her two darling daughters and I've always admired them. She makes it look so easy! When I found out she was venturing out into professional photography, I wanted to book a session with her before it was too late. I didn't have any expectations, based only on my reservations to have someone photograph me, but I knew Ursula would do an amazing job... and that she did! We had a lot of fun and I am so glad we did this. She even took a few bare belly shots (now that took some coaxing)! Thank you so much, Ursula!!! 3e

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our session:

These photos are absolutely beautiful and I'm so glad we documented my pregnancy... even if I was 37-weeks and hugely pregnant. Ursula is such an amazing person, that she helped me feel so comfortable, in my own pregnant skin. This photo session was a huge confidence booster for me and will certainly help these next three weeks pass quickly... or so I hope! Ursula will also be doing a newborn photo session for us and I cannot wait. I based on her talent, I know those photos will turn out great, too. 

Love always,
Ian, Kim, Bella & Baby #2
