Showing Off The Bump - Maternity Photos

Monday, June 29, 2015

When we found out we were pregnant, I knew I wanted to get maternity photos taken at some point during my pregnancy. One thing I have struggled a bit with throughout the last 7 months is being comfortable and proud of my growing belly. Some days I feel great and don't mind flaunting my tummy, and other's I'm still a little apprehensive and nervous to wear tight things that really show it off. So when it got closer to picture time, I was worried about how I would feel taking photos that were supposed to really emphasize everything I'd been worrying about.

We decided to use Myah from Glo Photography after a friend had worked her, and if you're in the Portland area I highly highly recommend you do the same! We hadn't met in person until the night of our shoot, but she welcomed me with open arms, literally a hug as soon as we met and immediately made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Between her outgoing personality and friendly smile along with her style of shooting where she just sort of lets you be you, I felt at ease the entire time.

I really wanted our pictures to be taken outdoors, so we ventured to a local park and played in the oak groves and wheat fields as the sun set. Dan and I hadn't had any professional photos taken since our wedding day, nearly 5 years ago so we were both excited to get some new pictures taken. We left the shoot at about 9:15 and by 12:45, I had an email from her with a link to her blog to take a look at some of the amazing images she captured! And I couldn't be more excited with how they turned out! But enough about the background of the story, lets get to the photos, or the only reason you're really here today!

























Sorry for the photo overload . . . I couldn't choose just a few and I just love them all so much that I had to share them with all of you!
