Family Maternity Photos {Little Earthling Photography}

posted in: Photography | 5

Tami is one of the best friends someone could have. I often feel that our relationship is skewed a bit. I feel like Tami is always helping me, supporting me and often lending a hand and that I rarely get to return the favor. So when she asked for a few maternity photos, I was happy I could finally do something for her.

He is growing into  a handsome, responsible young man. So fun to see him grow up.family maternity photos

I made Tami drag her family out for a few shots. She was worried that they weren’t dressed for family photos. Who cares? Tami looked cute, her kids were clean, and I even managed a shot with all of them looking at the camera. I think they’re adorable.family maternity photosfamily maternity photosfamily maternity photos

Sweet Abigail. I photographed her loooong but successful VBAC in 2011. And I’ll certainly be capturing this little one’s arrival as well.family maternity photosfamily maternity photos

And lest you think I’m the best friend ever because when you come over for my son’s birthday party I might just whip out my camera and take maternity pictures, I have a confession to make.

Tami asked me to do maternity photos when she was pregnant with Abigail. And what else could I say, but yes? So I took the photos. But I had no idea what I was doing. I had never taken maternity photos. I still felt awkward about posing people, especially pregnant women. So I took the photos, but they have been sitting, unedited, on my hard drive all this time. Yes, I’m embarrassed about it. But this was a confession, after all. I have now pulled them off my hard drive and am editing them for Tami.

Here is one of the shots from  her pregnancy with Abigail. And I promise, Tami, you’ll get the rest.family maternity photosThis picture pretty much sums up Tami. Strong, beautiful, goofy.  I can’t wait to get the call that she is in labor with this new little babe!

      Thank you! No problem, I always love to find new blogs to read.

  4. […] I wasn’t into long scarves blowing in the wind over half naked pregnant bellies. First friends started asking for maternity photos and then clients, who wanted maternity, birth and newborn […]
