Impromptu photo shoot:

My talented friend Meta, of One More Mushroom (killer new blog about desiging kids spaces that you will just die for), was so nice to help me out with an impromptu photo shoot involving myself and the boys and a few of our crafts that we have worked on. I realized that I didn’t have any recent shots of myself and the boys and thought it would be fun to do a few before our family dynamic changes forever – with a new little lady on the way and all (which we are of course SO thrilled about!).
Now let me tell you, posing for a photograph at seven months pregnant is NOT my idea of fun. We tried a few shots revealing the baby bump I’m carrying around and I just couldn’t get it right (Meta was great – my modeling on the other hand was less than inspired). But I think these ones with the boys in front of me are a great solution. And the boys look good no matter what they are doing, belly showing and all!
But I need your advice. Which of the three do you like best? I’m sure I’ll use a few for promotion and I’m just not sure which one I like best. I like the interaction of me with the boys on the last two but then again I really like the first one with Little O interacting with our interlocking cardboard castle. What do you think?

And thanks again Meta for being so willing to do this last minute! You’re an all star!

    Top one, the composition is stronger and it feels more natural, at least to me. Although the others are great too. Go Meta!

    I’m so glad we took the pictures before Atticus got injured. I think I like the first one best, but you look gorgeous in all of them!

    #1 it’s the most natural/flattering, the one that looks less like you are hiding behind the boys 😉

    The first one looks like it could be the cover of a magazine but I love you in the second one. It’s more personal and natural. It shows your fun personality.
