Picture Perfect :: My Pregnancy

No matter how uncomfortable or fat (yes, I said it) you feel during your pregnancy, I want to encourage you to push all insecurities aside and take as many photos as possible of your beautiful, growing belly.

I have to admit that it took me a couple of months until I felt pretty (enough) to have my picture taken. While my belly still seems kinda small-ish (compared to other 7 1/2 months preggos), my boobs and butt have significantly expanded their territory and my face definitely got chubbier.

Nonetheless, when our friends Whitney and Marcellos of Paco and Betty Photography suggested to arrange a maternity photo shoot with Paul and me, I certainly didn’t have to think twice. You may have stumbled upon Paco and Betty’s absolutely amazing wedding photography on one of the many popular wedding blogs. If not, well, they are geniuses. Their work is beyond beautiful and I’m constantly searching for words to describe their talent. Whitney (Betty) is not only gifted with her camera, she also has the skill to make you feel comfortable, pretty and enjoy every second of your shoot. So important when you think you are as big as a hot air balloon.

But as they say, pictures say more than a thousand words. So, I’m gonna shut up and let the (teaser) images speak…

Shot in Potrero Hill.

The weather was perfect.

We can’t wait for the rest of the photos…

  2. Fantastisch!!! Ihr (speziell Du) seht super aus… ich wünschte wir hätten auch Bilder machen lassen. Kommen noch mehr? Davon kann man ja gar nicht genug bekommen… ich glaube da habt ihr einen sehr guten Fotografen erwischt 😉

  3. der ‘gute Fotograf’ bezog sich natürlich auf den Hintergrund und die Farben…

  4. …wunderschön diese Bilder. Beide seid ihr strahlend vor Glück!
    Ich freue mich für Euch!
    Hoffentlich ist der rest der Schwangerschaft etwas schöner für Dich.
    Eure Mama

  5. Very nice pictures!
    And no worrys: Babys don’t need super models (or moms with a figure like it). When the body gets “softer”, it prepares you to be “soft/gentle” for the baby!
    I hope this does not sound stupid… Maybe it sounds different in German!?
