I am always impressed by folks that are able to photograph themselves and get even one or two keepers, so this shoot by Rachel Kruse was really awesome. She took these photos of herself while expecting, and they are just lovely!
The unique thing about this session is that I am the one in the photos as well as the one taking the photos. I am 7 months pregnant and had a lot of ideas for what I wanted for some maternity photos. The lighting was just right in my bedroom, so I gave it a shot. I set up a tripod and used my cordless remote to take the photos. It was very tricky to get myself in focus, as well as knowing if the pose I was in would work, so there was a lot of up and down while looking at the photos on the camera to make changes. I think it worked though! I love how special these will be to me in the future knowing I did them myself.[blogshow id=c937 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=1]
