Did you or do you plan on taking maternity photos?  I'm the kind of person that hides when I see a camera come out so what I've learned is that if I plan to do a session with a photographer who I trust to make me look good, then I really don't need to worry about the fact that I hide from the camera the rest of the time!  We had our maternity photos done on Sunday and so far I'm loving what she has shared with us.  Here are a few teasers that were shared with me so far:

I adore your photos!!  You are a beautiful preggo.  I did maternity photos and am glad I did.  They aren't on this computer or I would load some up to share.  I'd love to see other girls' photos!

I know mine are only a week old, but I am so glad I did them too.  I remember kinda thinking "no way in hell!" about boudoir and being on here and seeing everyone's really grew on me and I've never regretted it since.  That had opened my eyes to how important pictures really are and I know that I will always be glad to have memorialized my pregnancy and by a professional! 

 

Matt tried to talk me out of it (of course) and I was insistent.  He kept saying things like, we have pics of you pregnant!  But I hide from the camera so much that there are literally only a few pictures from Christmas day and I'm generally in the background and my pregnancy isn't the main event.  I'm so so so happy I did them.

 

And YES!  Please share yours!

Love your pics Carly!  I'm actually just starting to think about maternity and newborn pics now.  I'm reading on most photography websites that they recommend to do them between 32-36 weeks.  This will be challenging for me considering my baby may be born by then lol.  But I really would love to do them even if i'm not the cutest preg person around like you are.

Oh I certainly don't think I'm the cutest, but I did love taking them.  Well, maybe not taking them, but the end result after weeding out the bad ones.  I just made my photo book this morning and I'm so excited to have it to chronicle the journey.  My photog says she usually suggests women get them taken in the 7th or 8th month b/c by then you have a pronounced baby bump, but you still look mostly like yourself. Like any 3rd tri swelling hasn't started yet and your face look mostly the same.  So given your circumstances, I would def look into it but just do them early!  I was in my 29-30th week, I think.

I never did anything like this, other than my casual belly shots I did myself.  but I'm not the type to make scrapbooks and stuff like that, so I don't regret it.  not yet anyway!  lol

That's another reason I felt I had to, b/c I sucked at taking the progression shots!  I forget more then I remember and mostly I take them in the cats room where it's a hot mess and I can't show those pics to anyone!

 

I'm not much of a scrapbooker either, but I do love to look at photos and I always have intentions of doing stuff with them.  Surprisingly, I ordered a maternity photobook this past weekend.  But ask me where my wedding photobooks are....  Or photographs for that matter!  We don't have any printed.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
