Belly shots

We never got any belly shots with Sofía.

But this time around… with hospital bags packed, home improvement tasks finished, baby clothes organized & put away, and a mama going completely freaking nuts reorganizing and scrubbing out all the kitchen cabinets*, what else was there to do?

Josh obliged my whim and spent a good long time setting up lighting in the guest room. I drew him a diagram of how I wanted the shots positioned – I have PLANS for these photos, you see – and he figured out the rest.

Then I spent a bit of time editing in iPhoto, and voila – real, artsy belly shots.

Even if I do have a double chin in some of them.

I’m so lucky to have a husband so good at photography.

*** Let me state for the record that based on how I feel, I think it’s going to be soon. Way sooner than 3 weeks. The fact that it could actually be up to five more weeks (if she’s overdue) is so terrifying that I try not to think about it. Gentlemen, place your bets.

    Beautiful pictures! Josh did a great job and you look awesome! I wish I had taken the time to have pictures made when I was pregnant with my three…

    How does January 17th sound? (Her arrival date, not ours)
    By the way, heard this on the radio and thought you it would perk you up…pregnancy is a real drag for bottlenose dolphins:

    don’t worry. from the pictures, she’ll be here sooner, rather than later.

    Call me any time day or night. Must remember to start taking home phone to bedroom when I sleep. So call home phone if it happens at night!
