Womanhood Unplugged

explore womanhood through my eyes

My pregnancy: The maternity photo shoot 

It brings me immense pleasure to share that I, along with 24 other bloggers are celebrating #9daysofwomanhood throughout Navratri. I thank  Penelope Braganza for  introducing me. I loved her blog on the prompt for today “my pregnancy”

Although there have been many beautiful memories of my pregnancy and I have documented all of them on my Instagram page, the fondest one is the maternity photo shoot . 

The story behind the shoot is also an interesting one! We (actually me😅 )decided for our shoot only in the 9 th month and then the hunt began for the professional photographers.

 We chanced upon utsavfxstudio instagram page and found out if they did maternity shoot. Although they had a lot of good experience in prewedding and candid photoshoot, they had not done any maternity shoot so far. So, we took a leap of faith.

I did all the required research, arranged for ALL the props and dresses, 😎😎and made an advance payment. Since it was VERY cold and rainy in kanpur in January,  we waited for our perfect day. Finally, after two weeks of waiting, on a beautiful sunny and windy winter day, we got the entire shoot done. The photographer listened to all my ideas with a lot of patience and gave us a beautiful set of around 200 pics ! Hubby dearest was such a sport and participated in all my crazy antics, much to my surprise 😊😊

Most of these pictures are inspired by my research on Pinterest. So, here it is! 

We prayed, and He answered! 

I loved my peach dress here!

Yes, I named him Noddy the moment I knew that it’s a boy!

My favourite of the lot!

I stapled the sonogram to hubby’s pocket! 🙂

We gave the bump all the “limelight” it needed 😃

We borrowed the baby dresses and shoes from a friend for this 

I call this our DDLJ moment. I am a huge Shah Rukh Khan fan! 

I call this pic, ” when we were pregnant “.. coz it takes two to make parents. 

Throughout my pregnancy journey I was pampered to bits by my doting hubby so much that at the end of this journey I got emotional about missing that phase and things which were never going to be the same again. 

How life changed after it, for the better, is a completely different story 😊😊

I would take the opportunity to introduce Anjana Dhanavanthan who blogs at  this address. You can check out her blog on the prompt for today.
