Strike a pose!


....Do you remember this post i did recently showcasing a little of the fab work done by local
photographer Mike French...??...Weeeelll, Mike got in touch with me recently to say that he wanted to add another service to his already popular family/newbon/pre wedding portrait service-MATERNITY portraits! AND did *I* want to be his 'guinea pig'-erm, hello?
Do you not know me?, i LOVE to pose, so, naturally i almost bit his arm off to take him up on this opportunity!! And sunday was to be 'the day'.


Mike said that he'd like some shots of me, some of the kids and Mr P, and the dogs even got involved too!!!
By chance we chose a perfect day, its was early spring at its best, not too sunny, not too
warm/cold/muddy....and Mike was pleased to come here to do the shots as the farm was the perfect backdrop.

I struggled with what to wear so Mike and i settled on something which would show the bump off as much a possible, i guess as these were kind of 'test' shots for him, but, if i were to do it all again i wouldnt have chosen quite such a clingy vest i dont think!

I hope you dont think im bowing my own trumpet too much here guys, im just mega excited about the imminent arrival, but hugely enjoying this special time while babba is still inside me.

I have my favorite shots out of just these few, and i havnt even seen the completed gallery!
I know its going to be really tough to choose one, but what a lovely memory to have??

Anyway, you guys can make your own minds up...enjoy x

******Edited to add-You can check out Mike's studio blog HERE to see more pics-will let you know when the entire gallery is compete!**********

What fab pictures. I think I like the one of you and the two-and-a-half little ones by the haystack - if I had to choose, but they're all wonderful. xx
