About 2 week ago when I was feeling especially whale-ish, we had the pleasure of having some maternity pictures taken by our absolute favorite photographer, Maria Vicencio. If you are in need of a maternity, family, wedding or just “I feel sassy” photographer and you live in the MD, DC, VA area… CONTACT HER. You won’t regret it!
Also – if you recall (from years ago) – this is the same photographer that did our Trash the Dress pictures.
Maria and Drew are the NICEST people you’ll ever meet and are amongst the most talented photographers I know. Sometimes I wish I could have just a small fraction of their talent (and I always hope to get it through osmosis or something).
So – we did a maternity shoot on January 16th. Some photos were taken in our house, we braved the cold for a few others and the rest were taken at the Baltimore Museum of Industry (who were nice enough to let us in free of admission to do so).
Maria sent me a sneak peak yesterday and I am dying over these. Since I’ve been feeling pretty run-down in this final stretch of the pregnancy, it definitely gave me the ego boost I so desperately needed. And dare I say it? I actually think I look beautiful. Without further ado…
Sorry for all the pics but I really couldn’t pick just a couple out of the sneak peaks.
We were flattered when our friend, Traci, asked if we would shoot maternity pictures of her. We never bill ourselves as professionals or even close – in fact, I consider myself a photography enthusiast with a lot to learn!
Traci liked the photos we did of Kt & Ian back in June and had faith in our skills. One of the exciting things about Traci’s pregnancy is that she is almost exactly 3 weeks ahead of me! It is fun to be able to chat about pregnancy stuff with another first-timer.
We had a great time taking these photos and with Traci’s permission, I’m posting a few of my favorites.
We took these photos at Latrobe Park in Locust Point (a neighborhood in Baltimore) as well as some in the future nursery (they’re having a boy!).
Traci reads this blog so go ahead and tell her what a gorgeous pregnant gal she is! And isn’t her dog, Sophie, adorable too?
Also – I’m pandering for votes people. Apparently I’m up for a Mobbie (it is a local paper thing) for best personal Twitter feed. While I am in no way as clever or funny as some of the top contenders, I’m too close to the top 20 to NOT pander! So please vote for me… charmcitykim for Best Twitter Feed – personal!
