Fabulous Friday: Maternity Portraits
by Maggie Keegan Gross Photography

Posted by: Maggie

Original name huh? Well, I didn’t want to get all cutesy, and the cutesy names that I thought of and liked were taken. So, there it is, my budding photography business name. Josh is working on the website. It is looking amazing! I’m super excited about it. He’s such an artist!

So, on to building a portfolio. As I mentioned last week my wonderful friends Kristy and Andrew, allowed me to shoot some maternity portraits for them a few weekends ago. I was beyond thrilled to do it because Kristy is model beautiful and thus is perfect to have in my portfolio.

So, without further ado, on to the photos:

I don’t think that there is much in the world that is more beautiful than a big pregnant belly! I kinda wish I had one all the time.

So, the hand heart thing is cheesy right? Yeah, I think so, they think so, but you just have to do it. It’s cheesy in that good way that makes it kinda cute and funny.

I had so many laughing shots of these two. They are just too much fun!

Also so gorgeous! This next shot is one of my favorites!

Also did I mention how beautiful Kristy is!

Such a model! She is amazing!

Some more fun cheesy shots! Love the baby blocks! I thought that might be a little too cheesy, but nope! I love them! So adorable! They will definitely be making an appearance in the Newborn Portraits!

The one below is my very favorite shot:

Have I mentioned how much I love a pregnant belly?!

Okay, I seriously could not have found a more beautiful pregnant woman for my first Maternity Portraits!

Oh, and Josh and Eleanor tagged along to play on the beach while we were shooting!

Overall, I’m happy with the images and I hope Kristy and Andrew are too! I’m definitely still learning and already have ideas of how to make my next shoot better. But I’m pretty pleased with my work so far!

Kristy and Andrew, thank you so much for letting me take your portraits and for being such great models! You are going to be amazing parents! Love you guys! Can’t wait to meet (and photograph!) your little girl!

Kristy is due in a week everyone!! Wish them luck !!

A HoodLim Baby Shower

Posted by: Maggie

New Years weekend I went to the HoodLims’ baby shower. Josh and Eleanor stayed home, because Josh’s cousin was in town visiting.

The HoodLims have such great parties, always with tons of food and drinks.

I spent most of the party hanging out with their lovely friends.

Then we all sat and watched the requisite baby shower games.

One was a guys relay race, of course with backpack bellies.

Another was backpack belly twister. Pretty entertaining to watch.

The last game was guess the baby’s name. Kristy read all the names aloud and announced that we would have to wait until the baby was born to find out who won!

The cake was the cutest! With tiny baby Crocs on top.

In addition to cake we had Kristy’s famous giant pizookie! So delicious!

After cake and pizookie we headed inside to open the gifts.

Andrew kept track of the gifts on a spreadsheet on his laptop. Those HoodLims are so cute.

Kristy got tons of great stuff, including a very cute diaper cake!

Coming Soon: HoodLims Maternity Portraits & Newborn portraits sometime in February! We can’t wait to meet the little HoodLim!
