bump photography

When I was pregnant with Reno, my first son, our amazing friend Martine, who incidentally introduced myself and my husband as well as owning this wonderful photography company 'Martine Payne Photography' took some beautiful photos of me and my husband and our bump on the beach in Sydney.  She is amazing, so gentle and fun and takes awesome photos for loads of occasions. 

When we moved to Silicon Valley we were a bit lost as to who to go to for some bump photography done with my now second son Eden. My husband found this lovely lady: Kree Photography.  It wasn't a cheap thing to do but it was well worth it. I highly recommend it as a gift for someone who is going to have a baby or a gift to yourselves as I look at the images of my first pregnancy now and it feels like a lifetime ago but Im so happy it was captured. 

Kree is awesome, she is so down to earth and a mother herself she was perfect to take our photos, her no BS attitude and warm manner made it a really fun morning together.  We brought our own clothes and props and it was very ad-hoc with no real set ups except for the nature around us.  We wandered around the park she took us too and just had a real giggle.  her photos turned out beautifully and it was such a great memory of being pregnant.

Here are some photos of both shoots, Reno & Eden in utero, a couple of my favourites :)
