On My Mind Monday – Pregnancy photo shoot

On my mind this Monday is my daughter’s J’s pregnancy photo shoot.  If you follow my instagram then you might have already seen some of these pictures.  My good friend Jamillie is a an awesome photographer and as soon as I told her J was with child she asked when are we doing a photo shoot.  Funny thing when I was pregnant with J {20 yrs ago} I hid whenever someone brought out a camera.  Now it’s all the rage to take pictures of a wonderfully big ole belly.  So I was totally excited for this shoot and even thrifted props for it.

J is a big baseball fan.  She played softball throughout her school years.  So this seemed like a great theme for her shoot.  We went to a nearby park that has a baseball field and as you will see below it was an awesome shoot.

save the date pregnancy-photo-shootThis one doesn’t have the date on it.  As I am trying to surprise her and of all times she might just read my blog now to catch me.  {usually she never reads my blog}

    I think I like the batting shot the best too. So darn cute. Happy new baby on the way.

  3. This is just adorable!!! I would have LOVED to have done something like this 37 years ago when I was pregnant!!! I have only a few photos of me pregnant, and only one of my belly exposed…when I was on the table in labor with the monitor strapped on!!! These days the girls are much more open and carefree about the experience. I like that! What a fun way to celebrate the pregnancy!!!

    That last photo with the belly looking like a baseball is cute as can be!!! All of the photos are just darling! You guys must have really had a ball..literally AND figuratively!!! 🙂

    Congratulations to all! Oh, and good luck with the party for your daughter. Hope she didn’t get wind of it yet!

  4. The baseball shot is my favorite too. I can tell how excited you are to meet your new grandson! Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!
    Blessings, Deborah
