Before the babies, come the bellies. I know some women don't want maternity photos because maternity photos are taken when you are at your largest. I understand you might not feel your best in photos, or really even feel like you look like yourself, but I think this is such an amazing time for photos. And if you think about it, the photos aren't really for you any way. They are for your unborn baby who is going to treasure them forever, no matter the size of your cankles.
