I’d like to do something special to remember my pregnancy by. Did you take any special photos of your belly?
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I had often heard that people don’t take as many photos of their second child, so not only did I want to be sure we had photos, but also to ensure that they were special. I had a photographer come to our home while I was pregnant. She took such beautiful photos of my belly and our whole family.
I also scheduled her to return shortly after we brought our son home from the hospital. I knew that even though we might not have as many candid photos of him, we’d have some very special professional ones.
