When I was pregnant with the Kid, I had no interest in maternity photos. I wasn't against them on principle, just...meh, not a priority. Despite my protests to the contrary, I think somehow I knew that it wouldn't really be my final opportunity.
Keep in mind that you're talking to a woman who is 7 months pregnant, but this time is feeling a lot more like the last time. As such, earlier this summer I contacted Christina from Ad Astra Photography about getting together for some photos.
I'm so glad I did! First off, Christina was a trooper. I had my heart set on heading out to the lake, but the day we choose (right at the end of August) it was so hot and sticky. The Kid was in a bear mood, to boot, but Christina was great!
And then the photos! Like many people, I generally hate photos of myself but I was so pleased with these. She really caught the moment so well.
Any-who, she does all kinds of things besides maternity and she was quite reasonable--if you're local, give her a call!
