Pregnancy photo series

post #1 of 129
Thread Starter 

I posted this over on the Feb board, but since I since I'm going to stay here, I'd love to see what you all are planning to do.

 

My first photo:

I love these:

Yours and all of these are beautiful! And so my "style". I agree about that last girl though... with DS my bump at 9 1/2 months looked like hers at about 16 weeks...

post #3 of 129

With DS I did weekly pics, nothing pretty, just me against a wall. I turned it into like a 20 second slideshow afterwards, which was pretty cool to see.
I'll probably do the same again.

Well,  I'm not going to post pics if some people (cough Dandy Lion cough) are going to make theirs all pretty and magazine-cover looking, lol. 

 

No, seriously, I'll probably take some.  But the only baby bump I have right now is leftovers from DS, lol, so it won't be until later on.

Beautiful! How did you make it look so gorgeous!?!

post #6 of 129

I am sobbing here going through the peanut gallery... lol!

 

My number for today would read something like:

6 crying jags

1 hour of exercise

2 bouts of nausea

3 "I can't believe this" moments

0 brownies for this mommy

 

I can't believe how emotional I have been today!!!

 

Love all the pics.  Very inspiring.  I am thinking about doing this, but I can hear the future comments from dd1 and especially dd2 about how they don't have anything nearly as cool!  haha!

UGHHHHHHH  Really wishing I had gotten serious about losing some weight before now!!  LOVELY picture Dandy Lion and thank you for sharing the links - they're beautiful

post #8 of 129

very cute!

 

I was just thinking about this today.  It's a bit of a bummer that I had a belly before I even got pregnant this time around...lol.  We are boring and not very creative--we will most likely start at 12 weeks and just take one boring photo in the backyard each week :)  I did this with DS but I don't think we even got around to it with DD.

Truthfully, I have never been good at belly shots. I did with my first son, but lost the photos, so I only have two of my belly and only one terribly shot of my second baby belly. This time, I'm seriously overweight, so not too inspired! I will take a couple, but nothing too fancy, I'm afraid.

post #10 of 129

I took a couple photos.  :)

 

Here's my 5 week photo, taken Friday morning.  It's not really a "belly" yet, but more just the extra poochy that I've been carrying around since I lost all the weight I was going to lose after having DS, lol.

And then here's a pic I took last night to show how bloated I get in the evenings, lol.  Then when I wake up in the morning, I am small again.  :p

Would love to see others' bellies.  :)

My gosh, she is so tiny but she had a bump so fast!  With #1 I didn't tell anyone at work until 16 weeks, and I probably could have made it to 20 in loose clothes.  I really hope I don't show until at least 12 weeks.  I wonder if this is wishful thinking for a second baby.  

 

Dandy Lion, your photo is gorgeous.  You would be very kind to describe how you achieved it.

So did you just want to know who else is doing photos, or did you want to see the actual photos?  Mine posted above are just snapshots and not all beautiful and professional-looking.  Maybe I should start a new thread for casual belly pics and just stay out of this one.  redface.gif

I didn't take regular pics with either one of my kiddos.  I just have pics at the end when I am huge!  With my second we did a belly cast that I still have in the basement wondering what to do with it.  I just went through all my maternity clothes and am trying to figure out when I will need to start wearing them and if I will get a chance to wear some of the summery clothes.  Now I wish I had a belly series to look at to figure out my clothes situation:)

Yay, more photos! Harmony, I love your bloated photo. I'm exactly the same way lol.

 

Ardent- I chose a place in my house that gets enough natural light, and I put my camera on a shelf in the closet across the room and set the timer. I turned the flash off too. Then I just crop the photo (I don't want to worry about getting my smile or hair right, so I'm cropping my head out), adjust the colors a little for an artistic effect, and add text. I luckily have a wall color that works pretty well.

 

Here's a photo straight out of my camera.

Here are my newest photos. They won't all go in an album, but I figure if I just take a photo every week it'll be a lot easier to choose the ones for dramatic results.

OMG - you all have such pretty, dainty little bumps!

 

Unfortunately, I'm not dainty (LOL) and I just have pudge, but I'm determined to photograph it each week, and surely I will see a change eventually.

I'll have to set up my tripod and put a reflector on a stand so I can use that as a background. I'll probably start in a few weeks.

Thank you for the tutorial, Dandy Lion!  Everyone looks fantastic.

With my first I didn't need maternity clothes at all until 18-20 weeks.  This is my third and at 7 weeks DH is telling me that we're going to have to tell people soon because it is "pretty obvious".  eeek!
