I thought it would be fun to take weekly bump photos outside, documenting t he growth and change of my body and Bubbles along with the changes in nature throughout the seasons, We started out taking the weekly belly photos at 6 weeks and surprisingly only missed a couple…until the end of the pregnancy when we Wifey started her new job and we got really busy. I’m working on making a little video, but am not done quite yet. For a sneak peek here is the 6 week shot and the last one we took at 34 weeks. I don’t think I got too much bigger those last two weeks. I didn’t gain any weight for the last month I was pregnant.
I went back and forth about taking professional maternity photos. Then, one of Tough Cookie’s friends asked if she could take our photos for a project she was doing on LGBT families and we agreed. Tough Cookie worked for her back when my stepbrother was a baby. She introduced Tough Cookie to photography and sort of inspired her to become a photographer, so that was kind of cool. Here are a few of those pictures:
