Bump on the beach

There are a lot of things we’ve been planning to do before the baby is born, and with 12 days till the due date, some of them are slowly slipping out of our grasp. 
One of the things I thought we might have missed the boat with was some bump photography. The difficulty is when it’s your bump, and you are the one who normally takes the photos, it’s hard to find someone to hold the camera who also understands what you want.

Luckily my old work colleague Jenny (it’s her bottom left) came to visit, and discussing it by chance last night, it became clear she totally understood what photos I was aiming for. Not that that should be a surprise. Jenny has spent 4 years in two different countries working with me on all sorts of creative projects (she’s very tolerant!) so she knows how my mind works.

These photos were taken at Hopeman beach again, she even sweet talked my husband into posing, which is something I have far less luck with! You can see a few more of the images on Flickr
Thank you again Jenny!

Hello Clare, I came across your blog via a friend who follows. Your blog is great and your pictures are lovely. You obviously captured Scotland on our one sunny day!! In my mind I think I am creative but in reality I really am not and am always looking for inspiration!!! (and motivation!!). I look forward to following your blog!
Sharon 🙂

Lovely photos, which you will always cherish. Best wishes for the long, long days of the end of your pregnancy, and hope it all goes smoothly for you.

All of your photos are stunning! I can only imagine what you could have done had you seen the gorges and mountains of New Mexico with my sister and I. Your bump is a beautiful sight, too. I wish you well.
