If you’ve been reading my past posts, you know I love photos. I have a photo charm necklace and one of my favorite apps is one that forces me to take and post a photo everyday of H.
I think it’s important to save memories and pass them on to your little one’s and someday their little one’s. I love scrapbooking, making photo books, and putting together scrap boxes with family mementos. So my pregnancy was no different.
Although somedays I certainly did not feel like having my photos taken (see the last one in this series) I thought it was important to take a photo every month while I was pregnant both to see the changes I was going through, but also as something fun to look back on after I had H.
If you decide to do something similar to this, these are the tips I would offer:
1. Make sure you and your photographer (in my case my husband) are in a good mood and you’re not rushed. It will make for a much better photo, I promise.
2. Choose an outfit from the beginning that you can wear in every photo you take throughout your pregnancy. It really shows off the changes more as you go through your pregnancy, which is the whole point.
3. Also, take the photo in the same place every time, for the same reason as above. Try also to do it at the same time of day each time when the natural lighting is best. I also did black and white to keep things as consistent as possible.
