My sister, Shawna, is due on December 26, and her Christmas wish (other than a little bundle of breastfeeding joy) was to have Tom and I take pregnancy pictures. We finally got around to it yesterday (we like living on the edge), and I am so pleased with the results! For using our living room as the studio and having absolutely no experience with pregnancy photography, I’d say that we pulled off a few really good shots.

It helps to have such a gorgeous model!

Shawna has graciously allowed me to share some of her pictures here. These are our favorites:

Shawna 03.1

Shawna 05

Shawna 18

Shawna 20

Shawna 33.1

Shawna 38

Shawna 41.1

Simply beautiful.

I am so honored that Shawna has invited me to be part of her birth, I can’t wait to meet this new little person!

Congratulations, Shawna, we love you!

    Oh, gorgeous! I love belly pics. I love the silhouette one. Well, I love them all. I can’t believe she’s almost due. I looked like a total freak by that stage! She’s so beautiful.

      Thank you – I, too, was a whale in late pregnancy. Of course by her stage Kieran was already here :)
