Our Maternity Pictures | Columbus Ohio Maternity Photographer

Our maternity photo session took place at Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio. Our wedding photos were taken at this same location 5 years ago. We used a few of the same spots as well as one of our favorite poses from our wedding pictures during our maternity session. These photos were taken at 36 weeks by my dad and edited by me.

At 30 weeks pregnant I talked my husband into following me around at a park, in the heat, to take my maternity pictures. He was such a good sport! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband. He did an awesome job taking the photos and I edited them. Now that I am off work I finally have time to post them.  I hope to get around to editing and posting the pictures of us together before our little man arrives.

Baby Bump | 18-Weeks Pregnant | Galloway Ohio Photographer

Last Thursday, April 13th 2017, I hit the 18-week mark in my first pregnancy. My little man finally decided to make his presence known and now mommy is starting to show. I currently have just a little baby bump because Josiah is only about the size of an artichoke. He is about 5 1/2 inches long and ways approximately 6.7 ounces. We get to see him again in a little over a week for his anatomy ultrasound. I can’t wait!

I am a maternity photographer in central Ohio serving areas such as Delaware, Hilliard, Westerville, Powell, Worthington, Dublin, Marysville, Galloway & Grove City. I love all types of photo sessions, but maternity sessions are one of my favorites. I enjoy taking close-up’s of just the baby bump and I love incorporating simple props such as ultrasound photos and baby shoes. Daddy and sibling(s) are always welcome at maternity sessions as well. It is such a joy to observe and photograph this special time in a family’s life.

The Smith family is expecting baby #2, a boy, at the end of February. I am so excited to meet the little guy at his newborn session!
