Stemming from the funny pregnancy pics

Would you or have you ever had pregnancy pics taken? Were you fully dressed, partially nude or completely nude? Do you think any are unacceptable or offensive?

lisa, jut make sure that he doesn't get too camera happy. my hubby did and we ended up with shot of my vagina (you know the whole almost there look, gah), then baby coming out of vagina, then vagina with umbilical cord attached to a baby coming out of it. we didn't own a digital camera then, and i had them unknowingly developed at walmart. i imagine the photoshop worker that day had passed them around to everyone there. sigh...

I didn't have any pics when I was preg with Conner, but with Brooklynn we got professional shots done.
I was fully clothed, then in jeans and a bra, then in jeans, then in shoes lol. But when I was wearing the shoes I was wearing a nice flow-y fabric wrap thing lol. At no point were there any nipple shots lol. I was always covered.
I don't think there are any offensive maternity pics, but I have seen some that are not very tasteful.

I would love to have professional ones done but we don't have the money for that. We do unprofessional belly photos, obviously. I do plan to have my mother or husband take pictures while I'm in labor. Last labor my husband forgot, and I forgot to remind him and he didn't until our daugther was just born.

I have pics done with my professional. Most are fully clothed, some are me holding up my shirt so you can see the belly better. My cousin is coming in town for Christmas. She has some photojournalism experience, so we might do a few just for fun. Clothes on!

I have a friend who has done completely nude professional pictures both while pregnant and not pregnant. They were a gift for her husband. Not my taste, but I can appreciate the art behind it.

i wouldn't do any professional ones, but i do wish i would've had some more pics of me while pregnant. maybe once a week to see the difference. i have a about 3 pics each pregnancy, and it irritates me i didn't get on that more.

i don't think there are nude ones that are offensive if they are done tastefully, the ones in that website, ugh! tacky, IMO. although i did like the one where she's looking in the mirror and she's holding a baby in the mirror, pregnant in real life. i thought that one was cool.

I took some pregnancy pics of myself with the self-timer, and near the end, got a friend of mine to take some, as he was over visiting and had his really good camera with him.

I wasn't nude or partially nude -- jeans and a snug-fitting tank top, basically, so that you could see the belly. I have professional contacts and colleagues on my Facebook, so I definitely didn't want to post anything that I'd be embarrassed for them to see.

I'd consider some with my belly showing, solely to keep within my home. But I'd have some sort of top on. I'm a little bit modest in nature when it comes to my body, so a naked picture of me with my arms over my boobs? Not gonna happen. Besides, I have such big boobs that putting my arm over them to hide them would just look ludicrous.

I had some taken. I was both dressed and partially dressed (belly was showing). They turned out beautiful! I don't find pregnancy pictures to be unacceptable or offensive in any way regardless of how one choose to capture that special moment in time.

No professional pics, I'm too cheap for that. But I have had hubby take a few pictures of my giant belly because friends wanted to see it and I'm not being too social.

Fully dressed on all of them, ha. They went on Facebook and I don't wanna show off my hideous stretch marks.

I figure as long as you're okay with showing yourself off, go for it. Well, if it makes someone, ie your mate, uncomfortable...then don't. If you can't show the pictures to your mom or your dad without getting red-faced, then don't show them off to the rest of the world.
