Maternity Photos

There are times when I'm really glad my husband has way too much money invested in photography equipment and a ton of time invested in developing his photo lighting, capturing, and editing skills. Like, when I get free maternity photos. Yay!

I decided now was the time, because, to quote myself "I'm big enough, but not excessively puffy yet". The photos of me near Payne's due date brought me to tears at the time. Heh heh.

So Dan set up some lights in the family room and preserved my roundness for all eternity.

We've seen the goods three times now, so I actually took a bow out of a package. (but I still have the reciept). We actually got these socks when I was pregnant with Payne. Turns out we're going to get to use them after all!

Payne got in on the action. I asked Dan to photoshop out the Batman logo, but he staunchly refused.

Payne gives "Baby Sidder" a kiss. It was a loud one too.

I wondered about putting myself in a sports bra out there on the internet, but it covers a lot more than my non-pregnant bikinis! Oh well...

The belleh is going to eat you...

And my favorite: Payne in his cowboy hat "shooting" the t.v. with his purple plastic golf club. He has nice form, eh? You can see he's mid "Pshoo!" noise too.


  1. They are beautiful, Rachel! You'll cherish those pics for a long time!

  2. You look great! Cant wait to see/meet baby girl.
