Maternity Pics

So, last Monday we went to a local park and had my s-i-l take some pics of us for our maternity shots. I love the way sooo many of them turned out. I was scared (for her) - since Chris and I are just not photo people....she did amazing! My favorite pics include the baby's name which we're not sharing until she's here so those will have to wait. Taking my favorite pics was also the best part of the photoshoot. It involved me laying on my back in the grass, block letters with the name on it resting on my belly and my s-i-l crawling on the ground to get a good angle. I then started laughing and couldn't stop laughing so the blocks kept falling off my belly. Good thing she is patient!!

Anyways, here are some of my favorites. I can't believe it took me this long to get these posted!
These are in the beginning - we look like we're standing as far apart as possible but we look happy

I stink at knowing where/how to place my hands in pics...s-i-l was a good help at resolving this problem

We look squinty since we're looking into the sun - but the sign looks super cute!

Chris's favorite pic of me - I wish my hair was doing something different

This one cracks me up since Chris is making a goofy face in it

My niece helped pick out some of the clothing to use - little baby clothes are adorable!

Little baby girl shoes - so frickin cute!

I'm so happy we were able to get some pics of us before she's here. I plan to do a mini photoshoot in the nursery involving the pups in the near future. I have a pretty cute idea in my head that I hope translates to being cute in a picture :) Chris will get to test out his photo skills...yikes!
