The photographer was also a good friend of mine which made it easier for me to agree to do it. I think she did a wonderful job considering I was an amateur model. She also took photos for my DD's holiday pictures in the past. Since these turned out so great, I am planning on hiring her again for a family portrait when the baby comes out in the Fall.
It made me feel sad that I never did this when I was pregnant with Mads, but happy that I will have these pictures to reminisce with the new baby when he is older. I don't think I will ever see myself pregnant again after this one so it's nice to have something to look back to.
