18th June 2013 By Kate Williams 16 Comments Taking pictures of my (ever expanding) bump wasn’t something I really planned on doing until recently. Then the other day I was reading the ‘wish I took pictures like that’ blog Capture by Lucy and I noticed that she had a section on pregnancy photography and I thought, well, why not? Because I am not a professional photographer and don’t have a decent camera, I used an ipad to take these shots.
My other handy hint would be to make sure in advance that you are wearing clothes that won’t leave lines on your body at all. My final hint is photoediting, because I figured anything I did would look a lot more classy in black and white!
I had professional photos done (Boudoir Photography) by FYEO (For Your Eyes Only) when I was 40 weeks. Some of my favourite sets on Pinterest are ones where people have had the commitment to take images every week or month (though if I’m honest I suspect many of them are first-timers because as we know the bump looks waaaay different second (or third, or fourth…) time around! Bump photos look particularly fabulous around the 33w mark – bump still perky, but visible, and your mobility can deal with a shoot. I’m currently 36 weeks pregnant and have been wanting to recreate this picture (scroll down a bit) from Kelly Hicks Photography for a while now. Every week I post a bump shot, but today’s 36 week photo got quite a bit of a response on facebook and instagram. You’ll need a window with natural light coming in, preferably with thin, white, or sheer curtains closed to filter the light slightly and create a soft glow. Prop up your camera on a box, dresser, or something across from your window so that it is at about shoulder height. For me, I lined up the arm next to the window in line with my body so it didn’t show, and my hand closer to the camera on my hip, making sure that you could see the curve of my back clearly. Here’s the original (from Kelly Hicks Photography): Our editing style is a little different, but not bad for an iPhone camera! Try it out for yourself, have fun with poses, or add your kids, pets, or family to the mix.
Also, THANK YOU for taking the time to read this! Since this was posted almost 2 years ago, I have heard from hundreds of moms who have used the tutorial with great success.
I had no idea this post would still be popular so thank you for reading, pinning, trying it out, and sharing it with friends!
I think this is the first Pin that I ever actually followed through on– and it worked GREAT! I followed your tutorial step-by-step and ended up with a beautiful photo that I will cherish forever. It is no secret that any test determines the presence of pregnancy the amount of HCG in the urine.

Blue: En este momento, in my bathroom with the blue tiles, my mosquito-bitten ass sitting on the blue bathtub, yo quiero estar en el mar. Yet, as of late, I have begun to feel the evil presence of all these hormones that I can't pronounce but sure as hell can curse out because they're making me feel things that I don't want to.
When I walked down the Paseo de Diego to buy some avocados and saw a young man, surely not older than me--pero ave Maria, how heroin ages you, he looked so tired.
But then you realize that it's only the Devil that could be keeping him alive when clearly it would be better to be dead. He is so far gone, his skin so slimy I thought my fingers would slide right into it as I pressed the shiny coin into his palm.
When I see the man with metal sticking out of his leg, walking around, with a Burger King bag full of somebody else's left over french fries.
Certainly he has broken his leg in many places and someone was concerned enough to take him to the hospital.
Maybe those vises are supposed to be tightened on a precise schedule (you see, young man, you turn the little, butterfly-shaped metal thing approximately 14° to the right every two days.
It took the United States one hundred and eleven years to make sure we forgot what freedom was. I know the United States is not God even though they both work in mysterious ways, here they are both unseen and all powerful, many Puerto Ricans look to them both for salvation and prosperity and will drop to our knees if either one of them tell us to, even though everyone here has a few family members they have lost to both of them. One evening when I was a senior in high school, I gave birth to a little pink ball of flesh. It was the color of my insides: a pink you would never wear, blue bulging lines the color of your eyelids when you're sick. We were by the baseball stadium, even though I had never been there in real life, but it was under construction.
For five days I thought about this moment right now, in the bathroom, sweating, shaking, not wanting to look at myself in the mirror, not knowing which result would be the right one. These names floating in and out of my head as I carefully read the instructions to my pregnancy test. Other Raquel: Well maybe he didn't get the message because he had no service, you know that can happen where he lives. I would do yoga everyday so that my baby would come into this bleak world flexible, ready to bend and not be broken by the difficult situations this world would throw at her. I would sing to her and dance with her to give her the lightness of spirit that will allow her to travel inside the spirits of others and heal them.
My baby would see inside of you, see through the wool you try to pull over her eyes, see solutions in people blinded by ignorance. The ideal time to take maternity photos is about two months (between 6 and 10 weeks) before your due date. When choosing the location for your maternity photos, consider what might be in your background.
In addition to individual photos of you and your beautiful belly, be sure to have your photographer capture a few shots of you and your husband before your new baby arrives.

I’m not overly planning on doing this again so it might be nice to have something to look back on. I asked my friend Tanis to take the pictures for me because she had previously mentioned getting photo’s done of her bump and therefore I reasoned would be the friend least likely to think I had lost my marbles. My pregnancy leggings are the stuff dreams are made of, but if I roll them down they leave a rather tell tale line across my stomach. If you’ve taken some pictures during pregnancy yourself, or had some done professionally I’d love to know how it went, do let me know below! Am slightly concerned that your belly button seems to have disappeared in the second pic – did you airbrush it out or is it just hiding a bit lower down? But if you don’t want to get the bump out, a bandeau top stretched over the bump down to the jeans or skirt is a fabulous shape-enhancer. Blank walls are fab for documentation of the bump’s growth but if you’re a city slicker, why not take a pic in an urban background, or if you are lucky enough to live by the sea (ahem!) then use that too! Before whipping out my fancy camera, I thought I’d see if I could get a similar look with my iPhone.
It will take a whole bunch of pictures when the timer goes off and you can choose one to save to your camera roll from there.
When I wrote it, I had taken my picture a few minutes before and had a lot of people asking for a tutorial, so I rushed to the computer and hurriedly wrote this post. I gave this my best shot in my little poorly-lit basement apartment and was pretty happy with the results even though it’s not exactly a silhouette.
I have been wanting to do a picture like this for quite some time and I am so thankful to have found this tutorial!
I’ve always loved shots like this and it was very helpful knowing exactly how you made yours. In order to learn how to use it, how it works, and what are the types of tests, we recommend you simply read this article. It is important to remember that the development of HCG begins after weeks of fertilization.
A picture of a woman during her first trimester will not be as evocative as that of a woman during her third trimester.
If it is impossible to include other people, include an item that is important to the pregnant woman, such as her teddy bear or the food that she craves for. I don't want a child but sometimes I see little hands wrapped around bigger ones en dondequiera: the market, the shoe store, the bus stop, the pharmacy and well, I can romanticize, right? Forty days since I last looked down at my underwear and saw a stain like rust telling me it's time. Jesus fasted and wandered through the desert for forty days and the Devil tried to tempt him three times. A gash, the only abyss I've ever seen in my life, takes up the entire inside of his forearm.
And if I have run into, crashed into, collapsed into the warm and inviting arms of sin, I don't mind. I am scared that my friends will think I have turned into some kind of pro-lifer evangelist, giving a spirit to a blob of blood and proteins. The only sounds were the loud churning and clunking of the escalator, the drills drilling, hammers pounding, men throwing planks of wood into piles. Then I peed into a white plastic fortuneteller and waited for two minutes for either one or two lines.
I would eat only the purest foods--clean the soil from them with my fingernails--so that my baby would be healthy, not addicted to the chemicals, preservatives, and artificial colors that only serve to make us weak to the interests of companies who only think they are larger and more powerful than the love I would have for that imaginary child inside my may-or-may-not-be-empty womb.
See possibilities, shiny and brilliant as shards of broken glass, in this society inured by colonialism.
Offerings of the blood that escapes from my skin as I fearfully jump and crash into their laps. And in the empty white space that confirms my empty uterus, after the two minutes of obligatory waiting time, I see nothing.
Tight, form-fitting clothes will accentuate your curves, so don’t be afraid to wear them.
She's a work-from-home mom with a natural light photography business and a passion for sharing everything she knows. I have been using that app exclusively as a self-timer as Camera+ can take up a lot of space on your phone.
Point the back of the phone towards you, and look on the screen to try and get your window in the center.
Also play with how close or far away you are from the camera, 2 feet from the window seemed to be the best for me.
Get your phone ready, and TAP on the corner of the curtains or window in an area where you will not be standing.
When I was pregnant with P, my photographer took a silhouette shot of me during my maternity pics. I edited mine a little different (like you said- do it how YOU like it) and I am just in love with the outcome.


I’ve already shared your blog with a few pregnant friends that plan to use this tutorial when they get their full-term bumps! The name of this test is obtained by the fact that it is made in plain paper strip, which includes a reactive substance. The basis of the test is urine, which responds to HCG and painted in a delicate blue color. What if for nine months the clothes that fit me a few days ago now rubbed into the swelling mound that housed half of me?
Time to plug myself up, to shed the lining of my uterus because I DON'T NEED IT THIS TIME AROUND.
Yet for as much as I denounce religion, I can't reject the pulsing spirits I feel inside of things (everythings): Have you ever sat on a rock in the middle of a river after it has rained long and hard, ants stinging your thighs, the chirping of frogs filling your ears? I remember sitting in the common room of my dorm and doing my homework when I felt something uncomfortable in my underwear, like when you haven't put a tampon in correctly and you can feel it slipping out.
And I would pack her suitcase with epiphanies, lullabies, hands to hold, and bombas molotov. She would have x-ray vision, even though she would probably wear thick glasses, like her mother, the kind that magnify your eyes and make you look like a spider(woman). Offerings that would help those water goddesses drown out the Devil's distractions so my baby could swim through this world with her eyesWIDEopen in water with waves so powerful they knock the weak off their feet and wash away the non-believers. However, you don’t want to be so large that water retention, stretch marks and feeling too pregnant to feel confident about your body becomes a problem. If you have other children (or pets), be sure to capture a few mother and child moments, as well as include them for a family portrait. Chances are your mom had stuck a few disposable cameras in your backpack and sent you on your way.
Although I umm… appear to be publishing them on my blog so strangers can look at my belly.
With a little bit of work, apps, and an iPhone camera (an outdated 4 at that ;)), this is what I got. The tilting and cropping help draw your eye to the person, rather than the bed or the laundry on either side of the picture. In order to do that you need to collect morning urine in a Cup and leave it for a couple of seconds the strip, then put it on a flat surface and three minutes can determine the result. What if my jeans could no longer hold in the life that grew so intensely inside of me that it stretched my skin, stretched my imagination far beyond the boundaries of my own selfishness? I think if I retreated to the desert for forty days, I would see the Devil too but surely I would not chase him away. It's hard to reconcile pro-choice politics with the feelings that come from terminating something that all those pink and blue books say will give you unprecedented amounts joy.
It did not hurt and I do not remember if this birth was preceded or followed by cramps or blood. If you looked like me, surely we would have more in common, more stories to share, more mindtomind connections that would take the place of conversations. Today we reveal 7 photo ideas that aim to give you the maternity photos and experience you’ll cherish forever.
Maternity photos don’t really require anything other than the beauty of an expecting mother to tell the story, so keep it simple. Also there are tests that determine the conception from the first day, or the week before continuing menstruation. What if I started to cry at all the things that were supposed to make me sad before but didn't?
Then they open to let the sun warm your shoulders, still cold from the swim you took to get to the most perfect spot in the world. Choose something that is reflective of your personality, timeless and that will show up well in photographs.
What if changes in hormones are just this littlealmostperson inside of me teaching me what it really means to be human? When I went to the bathroom, I pulled something out of my vagina that was about the size of a golf ball. The disadvantages of this test include the fact that if used improperly, a high probability of an incorrect result. Then there are those women who have babies for all the wrong reasons: to have someone to love you unconditionally, to have someone to love unconditionally, hoping it will make a man love you unconditionally, to put your womb to use before it lays to waste.
Remember that spirit you felt as you hugged your knees close to your chest and closed your eyes? For example, if you have long or Vice versa little held a special strip in the urine, the result may be incorrect. What if I could create something that wasn't about receiving accolades, hugs, positive feedback from people I respect, props, a beer from a boy who wants to hit it or a smile from girl who thinks I'm cool? Then you must believe there is a spirit in the pin head-sized gathering of cells that began to take shape inside of you when you squeezed a man closer to you, squeezed your vaginal muscles tighter and tighter (no te vayas) as that man came inside of you.
For five days, however, I loved the potential group of cells in my may-or-may-not-be-empty womb. How can you not want to protect that bead of potential life in the same way you wanted to protect that man from everything bad this world will hurl at him, as his head rested on your collar bone and you noticed with every swelling of his chest as he inhaled, your chest caved as you exhaled? What if I talked to my baby about everything instead of saying "because I said so"? There are many things in this world I want to cradle in the clammy crook where my bicep meets my forearm: the baby brown bird with a broken wing I found on the street the other day, fresh baked bread that has risen perfectly, a branch separated from its tree during a storm, a book that makes me miss my stop on the subway, a beautiful man after he has fallen from orgasm, the idea of being a mother even better than my own. What if I no longer hesitated to hug someone when she cried or walked away when she needed me?
