I did not get maternity photos done with my first baby. It seemed silly and being on a tight budget, I decided to skip it. Well, with baby number 2, I decided that I wanted a few nice photos of me pregnant. Why? Because being pregnant is quite amazing. It’s so uncomfortable and takes such a toll on a woman’s body. Yet it’s miraculous and wondrous. Our bodies were made for this. Yet there are so many points where it can (and has) gone wrong. Whatever the reason, I’m glad I did it this time and I’m glad that I still have a few “firsts” that I get to experience with my second baby.
