Our Maternity Photos

If you have ever previously read the blog then you will probably know that Josh’s sister Char is an extremely talented photographer who has photographed us many times before (posts here & here). We are very lucky to have had her capture our journey into parenthood right from the very beginning. And I am super grateful to have so many beautiful photos to look back on from these last few years. The first photo shoot we ever had with Charlotte was a maternity shoot when I was heavily pregnant with Bella. So of course it seemed only right that we did the same to capture my second pregnancy too!

We had previously decided we would head to camber sands beach to take our maternity photos although I soon realised that this wasn’t my best idea. Despite the sunshine and beautiful blue skies, it was actually extremely windy when we arrived at the beach late yesterday afternoon. So much so that I could hardly see through all my hair and the flying sand! We managed to take a few photos but quickly abandoned the beach and headed back to the car in search of an alternative location!

After a quick tour of the beautiful East Sussex countryside, with a little stop off in a field, we finally ended up in a super pretty orchard instead! I was a little nervous beforehand as I hate having my photo taken as I always feel so awkward. I was also feeling very body conscious as my bump is pretty huge now (which strangers seem to LOVE to keep telling me). So I can’t help but feel a tad whale like lately. But as always, Char made us all feel so at ease. She has such a great eye for taking photos and I am over the moon with the finished pictures. We will definitely treasure these last photos of us as a family of three!

If you’d like to swoon at more of Charlotte’s amazing work or to even book her yourself, then head over to her website and definitely make sure you’re following her on both Facebook and Instagram.

Now, I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking!

    Oh these photos are absolutely stunning and how lovely for you to look back on in years to come. One of my biggest regrets is not taking more photos to document my pregnancies! xx
