Man, I've been browsing DA, Flickr, and the net for intersting and unique pregnancy photos to shoot myself or for my cousin who's also about to burst....

Anyway, my friend came with us yesterday to take a few family shots. First the sun came out, then the park we wanted to go to was closed due to too many people being there, then it rained, then Lillian wouldn't cooperate etc... It's impossible to keep a husband and 2 year old happy and get romantic photos :) But here are the few that we got.







I haven't edited this next one yet






Send me links to intersting maternity photography!

Random deviant stopping by here.... I must agree with you in saying that it IS tough to find some interesting maternity shots to draw inspiration from. They all seem to be the same. I did a maternity shoot the other day and posted a couple 'different' type shots in my gallery. I'm not sure how to attach the link to it....

concept is the only way to go IMO for "interesting" prego photos

my favorite on DA (i can't find link right now but its in my favs) is the naked pregnant girl blowing the giant pink bubble and the rest of the image is B&W

i'm always thinking body paint on the belly these days - i like the idea of the earth and doing a mother earth theme :nod: and then moon/stars on a night sky on the belly and her reading a book in a white robe by a window or in a rocker

I tried a watermellon when I was pregnant with Lillian, it didn't come out too well. I think it would be nice to have a full body paint (earth and sky) and not just the belly.

Speaking of body paint, I found this crazy 80's gold bathingsuit at Old Navy the other day, and wanted to buy it and get some gold body paint. That would make for some fun lines with a pregnant woman

take a shot from your view point. when you look down upon your belly what do you see. shoot that. also looking up. like wear pants. and a loose shirt that hangs over your belly. then have some one take pics from the ground up. of just the belly and then with you peeking down over the belly. with the sky in the BG.

also for you and your cuz together. a shoot of you with your head on her belly and vice versa. making a t shape. or i dont know how to do it but if there is a way you both can try and "listen" to the others belly? that might be tricky.

Sounds like fun. I was just noticing that in my new bath tub, if you sink down to the level of the water you get a perfect reflection.... I could make an orb out of my belly!

They look great! Yeah, you'll probably not find too many pregnancy shots because a) dA and other sites are full of 12 year olds who are only into anime and 2) a lot of people, I've discovered, do NOT like their photo taken when pregnant. I had to BEG my girlfriend to take photos of her with her first, and it just about killed her to do it (now she's glad she has them, but she sure wasn't happy I was doing it then) ^__^

I can't even find "interesting" ones on professional websites. Just the run of the mill half naked chicks that every other photographer takes

2-Never thought about that, but I can see why. I don't like exposing my belly for photos

They look terrific, but I might suggest any more shoots, no black shirt. The first one is hard to see she's even pregnant due to the angle.

Target.com but I have no clue if there is anything left on it. I only had about one page of things because it was just things like bottles and diapers, and then a few large items that are more a want than a necessity. I saved most of Lillian's things, which is amazing because I tried to sell some of the larger items at a yard sale and nothing sold!

If you got her back that would be amazing. I think she quit in 2005, that's probably why you might have missed her. It's been a while :)
