Not only is this a great time of year to be having a baby with the warm summer days ahead, but nature provides a pretty amazing backdrop for some pre baby DIY Maternity photos too!
This morning I headed out with Henry and my parents to take some photos of us together as I was beginning to panic that I hadn’t got any of us before the baby arrives! (forever confident about being early!!)
I wanted to share with you some of our photos to hopefully give you some inspiration into how you can also capture some lovely photos of yourself and your bump with a toddler in tow! I wanted it to be as relaxed as possible and Henry and I played as we would do on any walk to help keep the photography in a reportage style. The beautiful background did all the work! The bright lime green of the grass and trees works beautifully against the piercing blue of the bluebells.
I had a professional photoshoot when I was pregnant with Henry, which you can see and read here, but as with everything in this pregnancy I have not been quite organised enough to sort one out this time, but I am so pleased with how these photos have come out and it will be lovely to look back on them as memories of my 2nd, (and last!!) pregnancy! Props to my parents on helping me on the day!
These photos were taken at Micheldever woods in Hampshire, in between Basingstoke and Winchester where the bluebells are beautiful this time of year. We also popped up to a rapeseed field by a railway bridge at Pack Lane on the way to Oakley from Basingstoke, Hampshire which provided a beautiful bright yellow background.
