First ever maternity shooting

Finally, after about a month of waiting, I got the maternity photoshooting softcopies and album back.

Weeks before the photoshooting, I asked hubby whether he wanted to accompany me as I know he's not those camera-person. To my surprise, he said yes (for the sake of my safety) provided he'd be in only a few photos... hehe.

I sorta did a 'survey' before deciding and in the end, I decided to do an outdoor shooting rather than an indoor ones, as it's more natural with all the sunlight and surroundings.

Here, I'd like to share a few of the photos which I like.

 This is my favourite picture and it's the album cover

 The photographer is a lady friend of mine and she recommended Sentosa Villa, a very nice relaxing place for photoshooting

 This is a must in every maternity photoshooting, I guess ;)

 For this photoshooting, I brought a few baby's clothes, new born socks, a blue ribbon, baby's ultrasound scan and one 'coming soon' cardboard ;)

 Photographer asked if it's possible for me to lie sideway on a thin bench, ok, I'd do anything to get a good shot, haha :P

 Only 2 suits, which is enough as we shot at only one place. It was a beautiful hot morning but luckily the photoshooting was fast, about 90 minutes

I was about 32 weeks preggie that time
 Hubby and I were talking to our baby here, hehe....

 I only did a very minimal make up (which didn't really show in the photos) to cover my puffy face, as I wanted to look as natural as possible

So this is what I got from the package, 40 prints in 4R, one 20pages album (6"x8") and softcopies

It's a wonderful experience and I'll keep all these and show them to my prince when he grows up, hehe.

I hope you enjoy the photos ;)

  30. Plenty of cell phones have a built in calendar. You can easily
    organize your entire day's schedule with just a cell phone. Setting up appointments and then adding them to your phone will help you stay completely organized. Instead of being late for an important appointment, you will have vital information within your reach. Some phones allow you to take this step a bit further. You can quickly synchronize your phone's
    information to a computer and then create a backup copy of valuable contact information.
    Using your cell phone as an organizer on the go will allow you to have your
    very own personal assistant. It is almost like having
    a secretary in your pocket everywhere you travel.
    Glenn Smith, superintendent of Eads School District RE-1, said the Mitchells sent their foster
    and adopted children to the Eads school because they seemed to thrive with staff and programs there.
    He and Eads High School principal Betsy Bennett said the
    Mitchells were dedicated to making their children "developing citizens."
    http://tinyurl.com/amtx2ln These people have "a high rating for cyber knowledge capability because of the highly technical nature of algorithmic trading." Samsung Rugby:
    The Samsung Rugby is a colorful phone, which is a good thing, as it will stand out in mud and dust.

    Other than that it sports a pretty standard flip phone design.
    With dimensions of 100 x 52 x 23 mm, and weighing in at 132 g, the phone
    is pretty thick, heavy and big, but palm friendly nonetheless.
    The front has a 1 inch screen capable of supporting
    65,000 thousand colors and shows information such as the signal strength, date and any missed
    calls or messages you might have. You can customize the screen with
    some preset animations.

  34. I believe what you said was very reasonable. But, what
    about this? what if you wrote a catchier title? I am not
    saying your information isn't solid, but suppose you added a post title to possibly get folk's attention?
    I mean "First ever maternity shooting" is a little
    vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you've got to say.

    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

  35. certainly like your web site but you need to test the spelling
    on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling
    issues and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality on the other hand I will certainly come back again.

  40. It is best to go through the reviews properly because this can help you a lot to change your
    lifestyle and eating habits. Physical activities are highly necessary.
    When you have decided to reduce the weight and curb the extra plumpness then get the required information before you settle down with all the activities.

  41. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog in the
    near future but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  42. A single more important part is that if you are a mature human being, travel insurance coverage supposed for pensioners is one thing you
    ought to seriously think about. The mature you are, the more durable at risk you may be for generating
    something negative transpire to you when overseas. If you are
    not lined by numerous detailed insurance coverage coverage, you could have a handful of critical difficulties.
    Many thanks for discussing your hints on this world-wide-web web site.
