Maternity Family Photo Shoot

by jessicaturner on December 24, 2014


We had a maternity photo session Thanksgiving weekend and I have been meaning to share the photos for weeks! We used several of them on our Christmas card and I plan to make a photo book with the set of 30 that I purchases.

We hired Kara DiCarlo Photography for a 45-minute session and if you are in the Nashville area I can’t recommend her enough. She was very affordable and had a great eye and light sensibility. We were so pleased with the photos she captured, particularly because my kids were not super cooperative for about half the session. (Isn’t that always the way it goes?)

I was 34 weeks in these pictures.

Beautiful!!! And you look amazing. Will be thinking of you guys as your date quickly approaches. And TOTALLY doing a photo book with our photos. We used a girl out of Nashville that charged $100 for a mini-session (which ended up being not so mini b/c of an uncooperative baby 😩😩😩) and included in that fee was every digital image she took. Very happy with them!

You look beautiful! Congrats on your pregnancy :) I’m new here, but loving your blog. I really like the way your photographer took advantage of the lighting…the shot where your kiddos are running with the ultrasound pic is so cute!
