Steve and I have been together for over 10 years, and in that decade, we've taken hundreds of photos commemorating special moments and preserving memories. However, when taking photos, I am usually the one behind the camera. Sometimes I need to remember that it is important to also be the one in front of the lens, like when you are about to have a baby and want to remember your days with ‘the bump’ and your last days as a duo. So, I decided to take my own maternity photos at home, and realized it is a lot easier than you would think.
