My maternity photo shoot (a year ago!)

This time last year I was heavily pregnant and had a maternity photoshoot just a few days before I ended up giving birth! Apart from the tiredness and achiness, I LOVED being pregnant, and loved how I looked so I wanted to celebrate this with getting some decent photos πŸ™‚

I chose the photographer, Leah Roberts, via a friend’s recommendation – I’d seen the amazing newborn shoot she’d done for them (she did our wonderful newborn pics too)

I arranged to meet her for the shoot in Ynysangharad park in Pontypridd and I showed her some of the bump photos I liked via Pinterest, as you can see I prefer ones that show off the bump more than the mum’s face etc…

So,Β here’s some of the beautiful photos I ended up with…. regular readers will know that I have one as the main image on my blog… here’s my faves….

I literally got hundreds of photos from the shoot, plus black and white versions of all of them – but I didn’t want to bombard you, and like I said – these are my faves! They bring back very happy memories and emotions from a year ago – while I loved being pregnant, I was very nervous about giving birth and becoming a mum!

What do you think? Did you have a bump photoshoot? Share your links if you did, I’d love to see them πŸ™‚ Or maybe you disagree with the whole concept?!

  1. They are gorgeous photos, Heledd. I think I prefer maternity shots that are more focused on the bump too. I never had a photography session like this as I’m far too shy and would’ve just felt hella awkward. I do regret it though as I only have a few dodgy phone pictures of my bump.
