About three weeks ago, we ventured out into the hot and humid Alabama July heat for a little maternity shoot with Stephanie of s.w.g. photography. She did such a great job!
It was an adventure, but I’m so glad we had these done and that we included Murphy! I really wanted ‘family pictures’ of us right now in our lives and that’s just what we got.
In love with them all 🙂
A couple of days later Stephanie came by and shot a few in our house and neighborhood. The outside shots are up by the elementary school where little one will go to school if we’re still here when he starts kindergarten, which I think is pretty darn special.
If you’re in the Birmingham area and looking for maternity or family photos, get in touch with Stephanie! She was such a professional and did such a great job.
As I was looking for maternity shoot inspiration, I came across this pin and just loved it! So I set out to make something similar for our shoot. I think it turned out just perfect with all our little vintage homemade items we brought along for the shoot. And this crafty mama had to make something to be included in our pictures. This would be sweet to do with the baby’s name as well. If we had one of those, I would’ve used it. This little one will be named in the delivery room! (hopefully!) 🙂
Here’s how I did it…..
I pulled out some scrap fabric, a paint brush and acrylic paint. Free handed the letters, then cut out little bunting. I used an embroidery needle and twine to ‘sew’ them together.
And the finished product….
Professional photos by the super talented s.w.g. photography! I’ll be sharing more of them tomorrow!
