Baby Brain: Maternity Photoshoot 12 weeks

In an effort to document this wonderful gift of pregnancy I recruited Ms. Pixie to help me with a little project. I want to take week by week photos as my belly grows and document how my mood shifts as the pregnancy progresses. What I am hoping is that by the end I will be able to make a cute little book out of the 28 or so weeks left of my pregnancy.

Since I cannot use the elliptical in the exercise room right now we decided to set up the studio in there. We had all the equipment that we needed, a backdrop, some lights, a tripod and the camera. It took quite a while to set everything up and then even more time to get the settings on the camera exactly how I wanted. Once everything was set up it was just a matter of me acting goofy in front of the camera.


OH IT WAS HARD. I am so used to being behind the lens not the one getting my photo taken. In the end we got a few photos that I liked and that is all the energy I had for the day. It was time to go edit and work on the text.


Even though I am sporting the oh so unflattering, not quite looking pregnant, beer gut look I figured week 12 was a good week to start. I just have a little pooch but it will be neat to see me go from little pooch to giant baby belly.

I love you and mini me's outfit. How appropriate! Maybe the second most wanted baby in the world, you were my first.
