I first thought I didn’t need or want to take any maternity pictures. But after seeing my friend’s pictures, I decided I wanted to take them too. It was hard to find a studio that I liked as I already had an image of what I wanted. Luckily, I found Happy Birth Photo Studio (ハッピーバースフォトスタジオ 表参道店) in Omotesando.
I made an appointment and we were set to go! Before going, I looked through my wardrobe to see if there was any clothes or things I wanted to use. The studio provided many things tops, skirts, and hair accessories. I also decided that I wanted Boo-chan is some of the pictures too, and he happily agreed.
The studio was easy to find. We met with the coordinator and the photographer who were both ladies and had a short meeting on what I wanted to do. They were very nice and also gave us many ideas. It was easy to get my ideas across and things went very smoothly.
Enough talking!!! Here is a glimpse of some of the shots that were taken. Unfortunately, none of the shots are photoshopped. So you can see the real “me”—hahaha but hey I’m preggers!! These were all taken at 33weeks 6days pregnant.
Pregnancy is filled with cravings, hormones, expanding waistlines, and emotions. Sometimes I forget to step back and appreciate the beauty of it all, but these pictures sure help to remind me!
