Maternity photos eeee

Torsten and I booked our maternity photo session months ago, after discovering an amazing, and incredibly reasonably priced, photographer online by chance. I loved her blog and portfolio, and after a couple of quick email exchanges, I knew that she totally got the vibe we wanted--not the traditional studio portraits involving bare bellies and gauze, but more of a regular family photo shoot wherein my pregnant belly was considered part of the family.

We also knew we wanted it to be outdoors, somewhere that really looked like Colorado, so after some consultation with our photographer, we settled on Red Rocks Park. And it turned out to be the perfect choice.

I am so, so happy with these photos. I don't think I've ever liked so many photos of myself out of a single batch before in my life. All photos are courtesy of the absolutely amazing Kristy Rowe of Moodeous Photography. You can see a much bigger set of them here.

See, this is why I still have to have one more baby: so I can FINALLY get around to having some maternity photos done professionally. Every time I see someone else's I am so jealous, and this is no exception. These are gorgeous, truly.
And I like that they aren't too nudey or sexual, as some maternity shoots are, so that you can feel free to display them anywhere. I mean, I LIKE the more nekked ones too, I just feel like I'd be uncomfortable hanging an 8 by 10 in my entryway.
