My daughter is in her last trimester of pregnancy and we decided to do one more maternity photo shoot before the baby is born. This is Ashley at 36 weeks. We're getting close now, it won't be long and little Alethea will be here!
All the photos were taken by me in my garden when Ashley and Jason came up to visit us for a few days before the baby was born.
If you recognize a couple of the dresses that's because they are mine! So many of the bohemian style dresses and tops I love to wear work great as maternity clothes! Ashley asked to borrow these clothes for after the baby is born to wear until she gets her pre-pregnancy body back.
Ashley prefers wearing maxi dresses because they hide her swollen legs and feet.
The lighting was absolutely perfect when we took these photos. We waited until around 5 or 6 p.m. on a cloudy day, but the sun every now and then peeked out creating such beautiful light through the trees.
If you missed my daughter's first maternity photos that we took at the Milwaukee Domes, they are HERE.
Have a Great Day! Amy

That red dress is my favorite on her! Yes, it seems that a lot of the tops and dresses in style right now really do work well for maternity pieces, too! I have seen a lot of bloggers do this! Wish I could have done this when I was pregnant with my two, but maxis and the boho trend weren't popular (and were maxis even around then?!).ReplyDelete
