Maternity Photography

When I was pregnant with Daisy I didn't take many photos of my bump. There were a few taken of me with other people - and with my expanding waistline in the picture, of course - but none specifically focusing on my big round belly in all its tiger striped glory. I feel a bit sad about this now, although at the time there was absolutely no chance of me getting my kit off and having my picture taken by a complete stranger. And I definitely wouldn't have posted said pictures on the internet. 

I adored every moment of being pregnant, but wasn't overly happy with my naked pregnant body. The weight gain was vast and rapid, and I remember the day Himself found my first stretch mark like it was yesterday. First of all there was one.... then the following morning I woke up and there were eighteen! It really did happen over night and it was a bit of a shock to the system to say the least.

But over the last three years, and particularly in recent weeks, I have accepted the changes pregnancy and childbirth have had on my body and I would even go so far to say I am proud of my stretch marks and wrinkles - they are all a part of me and a part of growing a baby! What's not to be proud of?

This weekend I had some photos taken by SJS Photography and I thought I would share a couple of them with you here.
