Its my birthday today and its also the day i enter my 26 weeks in my pregnancy…
that means im officially viable, what a great birthday gift that is.
So for my birthday i decided to do some proper maternity shots seeing that i have been very slack at taking my belly pics this time around.
Doing a normal self portrait is hard enough when i use my wireless remote,
let alone when you have a big belly that makes it difficult to do certain things.
This time because i have specific things in mind for my pics and its practically impossible to do with wireless remote
i have to ask my dear hubby to help…and let me tell you it wasn’t easy! lol
I know exactly what i want for my pics…and its extremely hard not being behind the camera
and not having any control of what it looks like in the viewfinder…but we managed to get there in the end.
I had to give specific directions to my dear hubby for everything…things like where he needs to stand,
what angle he needs to shoot, how to compose the picture, the focal length of the camera…
well pretty much everything, and then i have to check every shot to make sure i get what i want…
and most of the time we ended up doing a re-shoot,
so its not surprising that he told me that im a very hard client to please…LOL
He was a trooper tho and he did very well in following my directions,
he was also very patient in doing the re-shoots (and its A LOT of re-shoots, trust me! lol)….
i just love this man, ohh and i gotta have him in some of my maternity pics too
so i’ll have to whip out my wireless remote for that (maybe later this week),
but that’s another story coz i gotta convinced him to be in it, and that’s gonna be a bit of a mission…lol
Secretly i think he did it only because it was my special birthday request
and also probably because he knows i only ask this of him once in a blue moon
and this will hopefully be my last pregnancy so we wont get to do this again.
Anyway, we had some fun throughout the session and i get to have some nice pics to keep as my special memory.
Here are some of my fave pics from our session…
