Investing in Memories

I didn't know if I'd ever get the chance to have a baby belly or to have a new born baby. So having this opportunity in life has been a double blessing in many ways and I want to remember so much of it, preserve it for the future.
Therefore, when I saw friends with newborns posting professional photos, I followed up to find out the details. It's expensive. It's really expensive but you do get a lot in the package deals that are available. And hey, this may be my only walk down this particular path.
So I gathered information in June but held off booking anything until the end of August. I just didn't know how far along I'd get and whether babies would be premature or not.
However, by the time I was 30 weeks pregnant I figured I was pregnant enough to 'qualify' for the maternity/belly photos. And whether babies come early or late, I'm confident they'll be healthy and born strong enough to one day do a professional studio shoot.
So tonight is our studio photo session for the baby belly and I'm very excited. I don't think we'll do any totally nude shots but she has some great materials that she can use to strategically drape around the body. Fun times!!
