Will you be getting them done? If so when and where?

I won't have them done professionally. I hope no one is offended, maternity photos just aren't my thing. I hate most maternity photos and find most to be either too cliche or too intimate to show other people. (For some reason, I find the pictures of the dad pressing his face to the mom's naked belly to be a super intimate kind of moment and not anything I would want to share with other people, including the photographer) I think if I lived near my friend, I might have it done by her since she has an AMAZING eye, unique perspective and is really tasteful with her shots. I have loved most of the maternity shoots she's done. Jeff will probably take some photos of me when I am obviously pregnant (7-8 months or so) Until then, I just look fat.

No i wont be getting them done. I think they look gorgeous and some can be extremely artistic, but they are not for me. I dont like the ones where the mother is dressed, but i'm too shy to get bare skinned!

I've never had them done .. I'd considered it with my last pregnancy, but honestly by the time I get the big baby belly and don't just look fat, the rest of me has also decided to swell up and such lol I just don't like pictures of me when I look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Hmmm, I might! If we do, then we'll just do some family pics and then some to show off the belly. My aunt has a great camera and takes great pics. She actually shot out wedding and took amazing pics of the boys last year when Colin was just 9 months old, so we'll probably get her to do some for us!

I have thought about it and I wanted to but sometimes I dont so I am on the fence about it. DH said if I want to do it he will totally support it and do them with me. I will def be wearing clothes though. The thing is, they are expensive, and I dont necessarily (spelling?) want to hang them up etc so I dont know.

I wont get them done...but ill take some of myself. i personally do not know what i would do with them if i got them done. i LOVE the pregnant belly, i think women are beautiful when pregnant, but its not something i would want to hang up. I dunno how to explain it.
