not sure how I feel about this shot. It was hard fought for. Next time i need a helper/baby wrangler/clothing adjuster and a remote. Shuffling my pregnant butt back and forth trying to beat the autotimer was not ideal. The discolorations on my belly are bruises from my heparin shots. They'll get worse as I go along but it's all part of getting a healthy baby in the end

Thoughts? Anyone have posing ideas for maternity self portraits?

Awww, you look great! I think having a more straight on angle, rather than upward looking will work nicer for you. Your B&W tones are awesome, btw. Maybe even try putting the (okay, I have to remember I'm talking to a pregnant lady here...LOL) tripod on a table and shoot down at you holding your other child.

The angle most def was not the greatest. I dont have a tripod so I had to rig the camera up on this wooden pedestal l and use a Lego Duplox to stabilize the lens while I had the camera balanced vertically- GHETTO LOL !

I think the angle is a little distracting but it's still an adorable shot. Love the belly and agree that the black and white conversion is awesome.

wait this is you?! wow that's awesome I love the shot.

remotes don't cost much, just get generic, they do the same job, and cost only a 1/3 of the brand price.
