We had maternity photos done right before he left for Afghanistan.. I'm having the birth photographed by two professional photographers. One is my best friend and will be here for two weeks to do newborn and lifestyle to send John so he can get some of the newborn lovin..

I definitely plan on having them done! My sister's maternity photos were great and I definitely want some of my own. It took us so long to get pg with these babies that I don't know if we'll have another opportunity for these photos. I plan on having them done mid-August when DH will be home for a couple weeks before leaving again so he can be in them. He wants to wear his khakis for some of he pics, and I'm sure I'll get a shot or two with me in part of his uniform. The photog I found does special rates for military so it will definitely help...doing these shoots can get expensive! She also does beautiful baby photos so I may stick with her depending on the mat shoot experience.

I just looked up Op Love because I had never heard of it...that's awesome! If DH does in fact deploy in November I'm going to try setting up a pre-deployment with our newborns and then a homecoming because they'll be so big by the time he gets back!

It's a fantastic program and it never even ocurred to me to have them done for Maternity photos until the photographer suggested it. I figure, why not! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. :)

I did not do one with DS and only had the newborn pics from the hospital which we did not buy because they were expensive and not great photos. My SIL did a maternity session and I loved her photos. Another friend has a photographer set up to do family sessions in the apple orchard this fall a 30 minute session for 25 dollars so I am tempted to sign up for this and do a newborn session. I feel kinda guilty for not doing it with DS though.

We plan to do a maternity shoot, just in case something happens again, so we can have some nice photos of the happy part.

I plan to do newborn as well but will not set it up until he is here alive and safe and sound.

Some of the girls who ride my bus, their mom does photography so I'm thinking of asking her, she'll likely give me a good deal cuz she knows what happened last time.
