Danielle, Daniellabean Photography, of  did my plus size maternity photos with my first daughter, as well as these maternity photos with my second daughter. Both experiences were great! I am into photography myself, as well as scrapbooking, so having these moments documented was very important for me.
I have never felt more beautiful than I do when I am pregnant.
l
I love my baby bumps! They transform my body – which I normally have some self-esteem issues about – into this vessel of life for my children. I grew their sweet souls inside of me. It’s amazing!
l
So having that documented was something I knew I wanted to do before I was even pregnant. I am so glad I did it, I cherish the images so much. I highly recommend that all pregnant women, especially plus size women, have their photos taken during pregnancy.
l
Your body only looks that way for nine months. Revel in it while it lasts. Nine months is really such a short period of time during an entire lifetime.

My two pregnancies were fairly easy and fairly similar, except I had gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy, but did not with the second. It was nice the second time not being considered “high risk.” I saw the same midwife with both of my pregnancies and absolutely adore her. She delivered both of my girls.
l
My birth experiences were a lot different, though I did give birth to both girls at the same hospital with the same midwife. And then, my girls are totally different. My first was 9 pounds, 6 ounces and 20.5 inches long. My second was only 7 pounds, 10 ounces, and 19 inches long.
l
They are also as different as night and day. My first was a very difficult baby and wouldn’t breastfeed and had a milk/soy protein allergy which meant we had to use very expensive formula for her. My second is super easy going and is breastfeeding like a champ.
l
Overall, I find the my whole experience with parenting and motherhood fascinating. And exhausting, of course!
