maternity photo session??? fabulous idea!


This past Sunday Pretty and I were trying to decide in the middle of the afternoon between going out to eat Mexican food, our favorite comfort food of all time for as long as we’ve known each other, and taking a nap.

Mexican food won, and we set off for one of the only Mexican food restaurants open on Sunday – El Salto on Decker Blvd. Because of its distance from our home, we rarely make the effort to go across town to dine there. However, the place is near our son and his wife’s home so Pretty texted to see if they wanted to meet us there.

Drew did meet us there but said Caroline was getting her hair fixed for their maternity photo session that night at which time I’m sure my face must have shown complete surprise. Pretty rescued me by explaining that some couples had photographers take pictures of them just before their baby is born – the maternity photo session. Drew nodded without real enthusiasm but said he was up for giving it a try.

Caroline sent a link to Pretty this morning with the results – I guarantee they made me smile and feel better about life. I chose a few to share with all our friends in cyberspace – enjoy!

These beautiful pictures were taken by Carolina Rain Photography located in Charleston, South Carolina. Bravo!

Needless to say, Pretty and I get more excited about the October 7th. due date every day!

Stay tuned.

    A beautiful family! I do love the maternity photographs as a concept, too, although I do think there are so many “to-dos” for young people today–and most of them cost money!

    This is a wonderful idea. Life should be celebrated in all its phases and pregnancy is nothing short of extraordinary. They look so happy in their expectancy!
