i am going to get some mat pictures taken next month. the thing is, i am so bored by seeing all the pictures of women sitting cross-legged while their hands form a heart on their belly! (no offense to anyone who has pics like that, that's just not my style). i am going to an art college and a friend of mine who is in the photography program is going to take them. so really anything is a go lol. so far my ideas consists of me wearing a long black fishnet dress, or wicked high heels, or being wrapped in black satin and chains (NOT in a kinky way LOL), or posing in front of a big graffiti-ed wall. my normal style is very pin-up-esk. i do have one picture in my head tho, i found these little leopard print high heels for babies (soft crib shoes) so i am going to put them on my belly, while lying on my back, wearing MY leopard print high heels :) i am open to any suggestions! I my also getting my hubby and my son to take some pics with me, but i think those are going to be more standard. i might get dh to draw a baby "tattoo" on my belly (we have lots of tattoos, and he's a tat artist) or maybe put some fake tattoos on our son lol.

any ideas that you girls would have would be great!

The ones that I really enjoy are where the pregnant woman is naked and holding a sheer or lace sheet like cloth over the front of herself and the picture is taken from the side so that you can see the belly shadow through the cloth. :) Have fun!

Ask your son. Kids always have cool ideas! Maybe he just wants to drive a tonka truck across your belly, lol since your friend is doing it - you have shots to burn up!

i do think i'm going to do a few silhouette pics, i'm just trying to find a way to basically "mesh" two completely different styles :)

I'm a fan of the more traditional stuff. The older child touching the belly or "listening" to it. backlit silhouette, mabe instead of a white lit backlit silhouette you could opt for red or a rainbow of colors?



Maybe you and your child "asleep" with him snuggled to your belly? Sorry I'm not much help.
