Pre-baby shoots – Yay or Nay?

From the time you discover you are pregnant, your whole life changes. For a whole 40 weeks (in some cases 42 weeks –GASP) YOU, will be carrying a beautiful little being inside you. Your once stunning curvy figure is now the size of an obese man (double sight! I was proud to be preggers, but the huge hanging body..well all in good cause) Your boobs are so big, it actually hurts. Let’s not even talk about your bladder. (The loo is your new best friend)

Everyone, including your mother and mother in law, will tell you that you need to relax and unwind before the baby comes. THIS IS THE BEST ADVICE THEY CAN GIVE YOU. SO TAKE IT. Seriously.( I still regret the night before my baby arrived, why didn’t I sleep!!) Once little bae is out it’s all about nursing and cleaning poop off everything around you. Including your face.

There are so many ways to unwind and relax. Go to a spa, get a massage, watch a movie, read a good book, get your hair done – the list could go on.

Many fads come in with time, and pre-baby photography shots have also made its way into our millennial lives. Let’s explore the pros and cons of having a pre-baby shoot.

Pros

You will get to spend time with your partner.

It’s not like you won’t after the baby is born. But this way, you can unwind and capture beautiful moments, while carrying little precious in your belly. Choose a scenic location for a few shots and make them as memorable as you can.

You can create lifetime memories

After your baby is born, you will soon return back to your curvy Sri Lankan figure, and forget about the flabs you had during your pregnancy. There is nothing to be ashamed of your pre and post pregnancy body. With your photographs, you will be reminded, how your life has changed for the better.

Cons

They cost a lot. Nothing in life is free, that’s for sure. Just like wedding photography, you may have to stack up on your rupees for this too.

It can get uncomfortable

No one tells you that at 36 weeks pregnant that you will be walking like a duck or looking like an old truck being dragged in ( Ok, I was told this – BUT HEY! It doesn’t matter). If you have.
