bump photography. and freebies.

so i took some pictures of my prego sister audrey(who desperately needs a blog) and her husband. i mean, i don't have facebook so i'm sure she posted them on there and you've already seen them. but go ahead and pretend like you haven't.

i'm going to be straight up honest here: i loathe maternity photography that tries to make pregnancy look "sexy". it's not sexy, people. it's uncomfortable, you feel fat, and you have no control over bodily functions. i'm pretty sure that is the opposite of sexy.

i'm sorry if i'm saying this to people who have taken naked pregnancy pictures... with your naked husband wrapping his arms around your breasties. gag me. we all know you had sex to get pregnant, nkay? uh oh, i just got sassy there.
Photobucket

instead, i think maternity pictures should represent fun. it is fun to have kids. it's a fun next step. i mean, it's difficult...but it really is hilarious and crazy. sexy-ness, not so much. ok, i've offended people. laugh it off, it's just my opinion. also, if you have taken those pics, prove me wrong...send me some! i will admit that i have seen like 2 that were amazing.

and since i have offended some of you, take these freebies as a peace offering. if you are trying to get pregnant, here is a freebie for 10 free ovulation tests or free pregnancy tests. i love having pregnancy tests laying around the house, as i am paranoid monthly that somehow i got knocked up even though we are using birth control. what? you can track your cycle so you don't have to be paranoid? hmm. i should look into that.

and if you are going to have a baby, you're going to need some snacks for the kid. when he's a little older. have you guys heard of snikkidy snacks? they are natural and organic....and here is a coupon(you have to print it out) for a FREE bag of these delicious treats. i buy them at whole foods, but perhaps they have them elsewhere. enjoy!

  1. I totally agree with you about the naked prego pics...Nobody really wants to see that, and if they do...creepy :p

    I love these! next time I'm pregnant you are going to have to come to Peru and take pictures of me

  2. 1. You need facebook. :) I didn't take naked pictures but I did take studio pictures of my bare belly. (I had on a shirt the whole time.) I think bellies are pretty. I do think naked newborns on daddy's hairy chests are gross though.

    I am stoked about the free pregnancy and ovulation sticks. They might come in handy very, very soon! *wink wink*

  9. offended. was just about to contact u to take NAKED prego pics of me & Luke. NOT! I don't even like taking clothed & alone prego pics! But, i do it purely for documentary... for babies sake. Join the cult & get a fb. It feels good to give in :)

  10. I agree--I never thought about this before, but you are right about preg pics. These were really sweet and fun. Had I ever seen this kind of photo before (when I WAS pregnant), I'd have had them done. Too late now!
