Pregnancy photos

Steph from Adventures in Babywearing asked that we post some pregnancy photos. I don't really have any good ones of being pregnant with Eloise but here is a professional shot I had done exactly four weeks before Iris was born. I looked pretty much the same with Eloise :)

Isn't it funny how perfectly round my belly is? It looks like I swallowed a basketball!



Oh, and since Steph started the bragging, Miss Eloise was also born au naturel. Iris? Not so much.

ETA: I should have included this when I originally posted, but the woman who took these photos is Elisha Rain. Here is the link to her site and I HIGHLY recommend working with her if you are anywhere in the Seattle area. I did my session very cheaply and am embarassed to admit I never bought the pictures (those are the expensive part!) but I have all of the proofs and have framed some of those, although none are on display right now. Hopefully one day!

  19. Stephanie, I can only imagine you would like my tips about how I manage to keep my children alive even though I'm a bumbling idiot of a mama? Hmmmmm? That's what I thought!

    We will definitely be in Madison one day of our trip. Matt hasn't ever been there, and well duh, it's the best place ever, so we need to visit! Maybe to the zoo, or State Street or something. At the very least we can all meet for lunch! How fun!

  23. Hi there

    This is my first visit here. I just had to comment on your daughter's name, as it is the same as mine. I have never known a girl younger than myself with my name.
