Maternity Portraits: Creepy or Classy?

Obviously I’m a fan of capturing all of life’s sweet moments, but the more I think about pregnancy photos, the more I’m just not convinced yet that it’s something I need or even want professional pictures of. There are a lot of beautiful things about pregnancy, but…. there are also a lot of jigglely and not-so-pretty things about it too. So as I do for just about everything, I started researching pregnancy photos and found a lot of beautiful ones but I also found a few below on Awkward Family Photos that are just out of this world crazy.

Please please please tell me this is just some creepy dude from the automotive department at Sears that just jumped into the photo on his lunch break and not this chick’s baby daddy. That’s the only way this can make sense to me…

Both of these are just a big NOOOO. If the picture looks more like the cover of some seriously seriously weird porn or like ummm… cheetahs, then that’s probably your sign it’s not appropriate for your pregnancy announcement or even your wall. Just saying…

Ok guys, see why I’m nervous about getting professional pictures of this? A lot could just go way wrong… Smile
