baby #2, but a maternity shoot first: Photography by Erica O baby #2, but a maternity shoot first: Photography by Erica O
If you have been following my blog, you might remember that a little while back, I worked with Erica O on a giveaway of... baby #2, but a maternity shoot first: Photography by Erica O

If you have been following my blog, you might remember that a little while back, I worked with Erica O on a giveaway of some of her super cute children’s accessories. Erica and I have teamed up again, this time tapping into her other talent: photography!

Just over a week ago, we had the opportunity to get some pictures taken of our growing family (and my growing belly), compliments of the lovely Erica O.  I never did a maternity shoot when I was pregnant with Portia, because I just didn’t really see myself being photographed in that way.

I was hesitant to do the shoot this time around as well, but Erica assured me that we would find a way of keeping true to her style while taking my level of comfort into consideration.  This meant mostly: no nudity, not many solo shots and finding a way of portraying our entire family rather than just focussing on me and the baby in my belly.

Since our photo session was Part 1 of a 2 part series (from belly to baby), I will not show all the pics, but would love to share a couple now and I will share the rest after our newborn session in a few weeks from now. EEK!

Make sure you check out Photography by Erica O to see some of her other work!

(Oh, and once baby #2 is born and we’ve done our second session with Erica, there just MAY be a chance for you to win your own belly to baby photo session! Make sure you subscribe to the North Shore Mama newsletter, at the top right of this page, so that you don’t miss this exciting giveaway!)
