When I was in the last weeks of my third pregnancy (38 weeks here), I was feeling very tired, excited, anxious all bundled into one. not to mention hormonal & emotional. So one afternoon I noticed some beautiful light beaming through my bedroom windows. So whilst little H was napping, I decided to attempt self-portraits. I set up my tripod, balanced my canon on a book at the needed angle. I used my handheld remote for my canon & used my 50 1.4mm lens. This is a very small lens so I tried to capture as much as I could in the frame. my bump being the main subject. I used 100% natural light, and improvised on natural lifestyle poses.
Here are some of the end results.
Little Y-M decided she wanted in on the action! I just love how my girls were so loving towards my bump. And even more so now with their baby brother!
Little H woke up, came upstairs and wondered what on earth we were doing, but also decided to join in on the fun!
Sweet conversations with my littles
“baby in there” – H (her little pointy finger melts my heart!)
Kisses for baby!
“can I have one on my own now Mum?”
So there we go, here was my attempt at lifestyle maternity self-portraits, including bonding with my girls. I’m so thankful for these images, as they mark a special memory for them to look back on & for myself.
