I'm nearly 34 weeks and feeling pretty great with this pregnancy. I have been taking a self-portrait of myself every week since 20 weeks (nearly), and at 32 weeks I decided to take it a little more seriously than slapping my camera down on the kitchen counter for a profile shot. I used a tripod and my handy dandy remote and spent a few minutes during E's nap for a little shoot. I wanted some shots before I got too uncomfortable and enormous, and I figured this might be my only chance for some decent portraits.
I hate having my portrait taken, but looking back I would love to see a portrait of my mother when she was pregnant with me (I'm sure one exists, but I've yet to see it), and I love seeing individual portraits of my parents from when I was younger.
This shoot made me realize how awkward it can be to stand in front of a camera (even if no one is behind it) and how hard it is to art direct when you're shooting blind. I even ended up loving some of the up-close portraits, which was pretty shocking (especially since I didn't touch these up one bit- probably should have).
