36 Weeks Update

36 weeks! Wow! Where has the past 9 months gone? We are getting excited about her arrival!!

This series of photos was inspired by Pacing the Panic Room – Cole’s Maternity Series. Not sure what I will do with all the photos when she arrives. I must confess, I have missed several weeks here and there. Oops!

    This is such a great idea! Good luck for the last little bit. How exciting. I’m sure you will know the right name as soon as you see her.

    You are looking so great. Sweet post here. I wish I had done something like this years ago with my babies. Good luck with your labor and delivery when she decides to come.

    You look great!!! I love, love, love these pictures and how you have been doing them. I’m excited to get pregnant with #3 and steal this idea (I think I said that the last time you posted too!). Not long now!!! :)

    I’m so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love these pics. I wish I wasn’t so anti-camera when I was expecting. I missed all these awesome things to do.

    Ah 36 weeks! I’m feeling for you…literaly as I too am 36 weeks (and 4 days). My 2yo insists that the baby’s name is Gaga and like you we promise this little one will not be named by its big sister. Your birth photography tips are so timely. It will be my hubby behind the lens and I know he appreciates all the tips you and your contributors share. Thank you and may god bless upcoming delivery of your little girl.

      Well, congrats to you as well!! How exciting! Yes, Gaga would definitely be an interesting name. Best of luck to you as well!!

    I love the weekly series pictures! I am expecting my third and have a weekly pictures from all of my pregnancies but none of them look this great!!

    I am just learning about my SLR camera and have been reading this site trying to get as many tips as possible. How do you take pictures against the wall without getting a shadow behind you? I have tried changing the position of light, but can’t seem to make it work. I am assuming this is the issue? Where should the light be so I don’t get a shadow on the wall behind me? Thanks!

      Congrats on your upcoming baby :) For these pictures my window is to camera right. The sun wasn’t harsh when I took the images which prevents harsh shadows. If your shadows are too harsh try and take the photos when the light isn’t as bright. These were typically taken around 3pm-4pm :) Hope that helps!! Good luck!
