On Saturday, the Bo & I had a maternity shoot to capture the final moments of our pregnancy journey.
It was a birthday gift from a very special someone (thank you again), and while I didn’t think I would dare to bare the belly in front of the lens (I won’t even wear a bikini pre-pregnancy & took some getting used to when I had my first glance of these preview photos) and the Bo thinking that it was probably a waste of money since he could have captured the belly using whatever photographer skills he possessed; we were glad we went ahead with it anyway because upon seeing a preview during our photos selection process after the shoot, we realized that we now had our very first set family photos captured. Encapsulating the joy, love, gratitude & blessing we have for baby chungkin #1 – as we progress from couple hood to family.
The Bo especially has never been a fan of posed portraits, which is why we never had any pre-wedding photos taken as we much prefer spontaneity instead. But seeing how he willingly agreed to have photos taken with us on Saturday, showing either his protective dad-to-be side or goofy little expressions in most of the shots made my heart beat faster & melt at the same time. He definitely looked every bit ready to be a dad as much as I think I am to be a mom.
To parenthood! … the beginning of a beautiful journey and to a smooth, healthy, fantastic & blessed labour.
