    Beautiful Maternity Shoot Inspiration | Oh Lovely Day

    Now that I’m in my third trimester (and rapidly approaching my due date) I’ve been thinking a lot about maternity photos. I didn’t do maternity photos during my first pregnancy – I really wasn’t interested in being photographed. And even though I looked way better during my first pregnancy (I swear I’m cellulite from the neck down this time!), something about this pregnancy has me wanting to document it more. Maybe because it might be my last time, or maybe because I would love photos with my son Charlie and my bump. Either way, I’m prepping for a possible maternity shoot, and thought I’d share some of the photos that are inspiring me.

    I’m torn between the idea of some maternity boudoir-style photos (I think they are SO beautiful – but there’s the whole issue of my being made of cellulite from the neck down…) and momma/child/bump photos. Maybe both? Not that I don’t love my husband and want to include him… but I don’t think I want to include him this time. It’s more about motherhood for me – about how amazing our bodies are and what we can handle and do and go through, and how much love just radiates in the photos. Not that having the dad included takes away from that, but I just love the motherhood focus.

    Also, I’m trying to find some pretty things to wear – simple, flowy, almost sheer for some silhouette photos, and a little sexy while still covering up. If you have any ideas or sources for ideas, please share!

    Did you do maternity photos? What about boudoir-style maternity photos? Any advice? And be sure to check out my maternity shoot inspiration board on Pinterest – so many more photos there! But aren’t these all just so beautiful?

      I wasn’t really interested in having any maternity photos taken until now. With a little less than 10 weeks left to go, and with our not planning to have another child, I’m really thinking I should get some taken. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I really think I want some photos to remember it by. But what to wear?!

    •  If there's one bit of wisdom I could share with other parents that I have learned with absolute certainty as a mom of three it is this: sleep begets sleep. The better they sleep, the more they sleep. The more they sleep, the better they sleep. It might not make sense that putting your baby down at 7 instead of 8 or 9 will get him to sleep longer, but by god it does. I'm gonna share all of my tips on getting your babes to be good sleepers. But first I wanted to talk about infant reflux -- our experience with it and what has worked for us in dealing with it -- because I know many of you are also struggling with it. And it's just beyond the pits. So head to the blog tomorrow to read that post and I promise to get the sleep one up soon. I feel like I could write a whole book on it at this point. Maybe I should write a whole book on it... 🤔 Also, This picture of Quincy from his nap today is totally distracting me from getting any work done at all. Because those cheeks and lips are all I can handle right now  #quincyrhys  This is how the two of us get to experience most of our family of five adventures, and I don't think either of us would change it one bit. #fredrickfamilysummer #OLDsfaveplacesinLA
