I was a very pregnant lady. Very. Gained 75 pounds kind of pregnant.
***Edited*** So I guess I did not gain quite 75 lbs, more like 45-50, but it sure felt like 75 so I over-exaggerated.
With the encouragement from a best friend, I decided I wanted maternity photos. So I contacted an amazingly talented photographer who has shot fantastic photos of some of our good friends, Melody C. Photography. We drove down to Salado, Texas to shoot on a perfect day. At the last minute we decided to bring Henry along for the ride and maybe, if it was okay with Melody, get a few photos with him.
Upon meeting Melody, I immediately loved her personality. She was super friendly and kind and when she saw that we brought Henry, she was ecstatic. And when she told me the story of when she was pregnant with her first baby and wondered if she could ever love anyone as much as she loved her dog, I fell in love with her and so did Henry :) I apologize for the photo over load, but I cannot choose just a few favorites. I did narrow it down, but still - they are all so wonderful.
I'm so glad that we decided to have maternity photos taken. Melody is just so amazing. A week after Ellis was born she came to our home to shoot newborn photos and those are just breath-taking as well. I will be sharing those soon. If you are not familiar with her work, check out her blog and Like her on Facebook. I love seeing her photos on my FB feed - they just make me happy.
Thanks for dropping by :)
