Seriously Adorable Maternity Photo Shoot | Jennifer Gullery Photography
Sometimes all it takes to have a successful maternity shoot, is a really pretty backdrop and a great photographer. Which this couple clearly had. But in this case, they also had a little dose of adorableness, and gorgeous casual chic maternity fashion. And the result? Frame-worthy lovely, captured to perfection by Jennifer Gulley Photoraphy. And there is more here!
How did you find out your were expecting? We had been planning for a couple months, so I literally checked every week. Digital Blue!
How did you tell the father? It was actually Valentine’s Day when I took the test and we had dinner plans that night. I wanted to check before going out so I did. I wrote it in his Valentines Day card that day! (Totally missed out on champagne that night)
Did you find out the sex? As soon as the ultrasound was able…we found out. She debuted rather immodestly too. Those pictures will be in her baby book for sure.
How has pregnancy changed you as a woman? I think pregnancy taught me to love myself and treat my body better. It amazes me that something so special is created in that little space and it’s important to recognize the beauty in that.
What do you wish you’d known before being pregnant ( even if it’s something gross)? I wish I had known how sore I would be afterwards. I had a long natural birth and I didn’t plan on taking care of myself for weeks after having a brand new little girl to care for.
Did you or do you have any cravings? I could not eat BBQ. Most meats actually grossed me out. I didn’t have any specific cravings. I did eat a ton of fruit though.
What are your 3 must have pregnancy items? Belly bands, cucumber water, sanuk yoga flip flops.
What is one thing you find beautiful about being pregnant? Knowing that you are growing a life inside of you is the most beautiful thing about pregnancy. You become a mom during those 9 months in a way and it’s so special.
What would you tell someone who just found out they were pregnant?
Enjoy every moment. Write down everything, keep a weekly journal and weekly pictures. You WILL forget and it’s nice to be able to look back and enjoy those moments again after baby is born.
What are your beauty must haves while pregnant? Mama Mio tummy rub oil and pedicures!
Hi there! I’m Jennifer/Jen. My husband and I live just outside of Washington DC with a big lab, Kayla, and our son Connor. I’m fiercely passionate about creating a visual history for my clients and for my own little family because life moves way too fast. Random tidbits – I could eat breakfast at any time of the day, can’t live without coffee (and lots of it…hello new mommy here) and chapstick, and I’m a TV and movie junkie…What to know more more?
