I don’t get the desire to capture your pregnancy on film.

I have no need to see photos of myself looking tired, uncomfortable, and yes, as big as a house. I can’t imagine wanted to look back 20 years from now and see anything that contradicts my memory of how lovely and amazing this time was and how vibrant and happy I must have looked while I was bringing this new life into the world. I mean, I haven’t looked at my wedding photos once. And I don’t know if I will ever watch the video–the picture is much prettier in my mind.

I’m all about photos of the baby, but I don’t get the current obsession with bump shots.

What do you think about maternity photos?
