Photo shoots are not something new to me. Actually, I am very very familiar with photo shoots, but  I am not so familiar with being on the subject side of the camera. Don’t get me wrong, I am regularly the subject of a test shot while a friend might be testing lighting at a wedding… and I guarantee they all showcase me with some sort of ridiculous face for the camera. I don’t generally speaking find myself as a very photogenic person so I avoid that particular side of the camera. And, everyone I am usually around expects me to be taking the pictures… until this last weekend.

Pete and I don’t have any photos of the two of us since we got married back in 2006, so we definitely wanted to do maternity photos. I love photographing maternity so much it would be a shame to not have my own taken, but it was not an easy choice asking which one of my amazingly talented friends to capture this for me.  I ended up asking my friend Laurel (check out more of her amazing work here) to photograph the session. I wanted some belly shots and also some shots that were more about me and Pete than just the belly seeing that we had never had engagement photos, so this was important to me. We had such a good time in the studio being super cuddly and belly centered and then out and about in Eastlake looking for great funky doorways that I love.

All I can say to Laurel is WOW and Thank you SO much. I’ve never had photos I felt so beautiful in. I treasure these!!! And my hubby looks so darn smokin too!

It was near impossible choosing the pictures for this blog post, so be ware… there are a bunch 🙂

…Beard – no beard…undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

And one to torture my friends and family. There is a segment of our studio shoot that we painted the babies name onto my belly which will be unveiled after the baby is born. We ended up getting into a little bit of a paint war. It was fun 🙂 I love this shot, and you can’t see the name on the belly… so the secret is still safe (with Laurel). But I do know it will torture my friends and family not being able to see the name (Karine).
