Putting together the photo shoot wasn't difficult. If you have a decent eye for spacial reasoning, color and design (which most crafty types do) you can come up with some clever shots on your own--or simply search the Internet for "maternity images" and you can see all kinds of ideas.
Here are the props that we used:
- Our countdown chalk board (which usually hangs in our dining room)
- A pumpkin
- A antique quilt
- A mum
You'd never guess, but many of these shots are taken in a tiny corner of what would be considered our back yard. Our house actually backs up to a parking lot, and so we have only a 20'x20' space that borders a marsh that would be considered our 'yard', however, with the trees, leaves, and tall grasses, it make a great background.
