I know this topic has been covered before .... I wanted some recommendation's for a photographer to do a few maternity shots for myself as well as some family shots before our new baby comes along. I know a few of the mamas here do photography and I would be open to speaking with them. I would like to keep it within a reasonable budget.<br><br>

she's done two shoots for us with Marek, and we're going to have her do another one for his birthday again this year (in a month! omigosh, he's going to be 3!) and then start birthday shoots for Stefan, too. I was going to have her do some end of pregnancy shots, but the day i was going to call her, my water broke and i knew she wouldn't make it in time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> we talked to her about doing newborn stuff, but decided not to do them at that time. but i love her work.<br><br>

I just had some pretty photos taken by Shayne Berry. Her website is <a href="http://www.shayneberry.com/" target="_blank">http://www.shayneberry.com/</a> . I like it that you get a disk of the photos, she's willing to go on site (we went to laurelhurst), and the photos were very nice. Good ones of my son, and all of us together which is hard to get.<br><br>
She's got a portfolio with a few maternity shots, I think. If you want to see our park pics let me know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I have a friend that takes amazing shots. She is building her portfolio right now (just started!!), so everything is free! PM me with your email address and I can pass it on to her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
ETA: <a href="http://www.funkywonder.com" target="_blank">www.funkywonder.com</a> That is her web site. Feel free to PM me if you like though.
