I'm in love!! Yes these pictures are of me and my husband when we were expecting our baby girl. My sister in law took the photos and gave the originals and I put my magic touch the way I wanted. Before I got pregnant I was on a weight loss journey. I got down to my smallest size ever and was pretty fit. My goal was to gain a great shape so that if God ever blessed us with a baby again I'll be able to take amazing maternity belly bump pictures.
The photos throughout the pregnancy were looking so great! Even though I've gained a little bit but I definitely look better than I used to. I love my belly bump photos. And I loved our journey.
See, we've tried to have our baby for 3.5 years after we lost our son back in 2010. He was 3 months old and he was killed when we were hit by a semi truck. Thank God my husband and I made it out barely. We tried for our son 5 long years so this tragedy was a little tough. But God made it possible for us to overcome through the love of His people.
And now we're enjoying our baby GIRL so much. She's going to be 2 years old coming March.
I just finished putting together her Photo Book using AdoramaPix. 64 pages it has. We definitely wanted to document and show off her first precious year. And I LOVE how the spreads of her "pro" photos (Taken by mommy) appear in the Lay Flat Photo book. Gorgeous!!
These special moments of parenthood, the pregnancy and the baby of course are something I think should be cherished, preserved and of course, SHOWN OFF.
Do you have some belly bump photos and/or baby photos you want to show off?
Here is the original photo. It had great potential to look how I really wanted it. Notice the feet and the dress mishap at my back.
My philosophy is that photography should lighten up the heart and the eyes with vibrant color, light and majesty as memories flood back into the mind and soul. No cringing allowed. Only magic! I'm a stay at home mom of our little girl! Photo retouching and restoration have always been my passion since the 1990's. When I'm not retouching I take care of my little girl, my husband, follow God and spend time with His people. All while listening to music all the time. ;-) I also enjoy playing the piano, learning to sew, eat Thai food, lifting weights, singing hymns and trying to make my house a home. Read more...
