We all know what an old skool person I am… plus I always deem myself too “manly” to do girly things.
Still, as we draw nearer to the EDD date, I was starting to feel a little regretful that we didn’t do a proper preggie photoshoot. After all, if Little Foot will be our only baby, then I won’t ever go through this phase again. So when a group of the mummies on the Facebook group organised a photoshoot (I’d missed a few earlier chances), I thought, I might as well be a sport and join in.
Yes, the old me would have said “No way! this is too cheesy!” but cheesy is always ok for mummies, or so I think. Hah, a chance to do whatever rocks my socks.
The girls were really quick to to get this whole gig together – from getting the group together, sourcing for the props to deciding venue – everything was sorted out really quickly, and cheaply (think Daiso Xmas hats and decor and tube tops from Bugis village).
The shoot was on Sunday bright and early. All us preggers gathered in red dresses. Long was really kind to drive me there and brought along our new GX7 and a couple of lenses to try the camera out.
Here’s a few shots from the GX7. Not bad Daddy, for a first timer!
All dressed up like a present, with a tag carrying Little Foot’s EDD date. I loved this concept!
A heartfelt moment, because I can’t wait to hug her close to me…
Bearing my bump in public!
Positioning ourselves for the “heart” shot, and getting it purrrfect!
A heart on the tummy… because I love you so…
Posing before “Noah’s Ark” MBS, mummies can do yoga poses too!
And a final parting photo before we called it a wrap… exhausting but happy outing
Made friends with 11 mummies with Dec EDD dates… some were so much younger than me, some were having their 2nd or 3rd kid, and one was carrying a pair of twin boys.
Life can be full of adventures when you step out of your comfort zone and say YOLO!
Welcome to my ever-evolving world of motherhood.
As I write this, I’m 35 weeks and 4 days into the pregnancy. Any time soon, Little Foot will be ready to wave hello. I’m feeling excited, panicky, worried and euphoric all at the same time, and now, I have 11 friends to share these feelings with 🙂
What a blessing!
One thought on “Another first…. bearing my belly!”
