In early July I was lucky enough to meet up with Tosha Gaines and have a few maternity photos taken in downtown Birmingham. It was a hot, humid, sticky morning, but Tosha made me feel really comfortable — and worked really quickly to spare me being out in the heat for too long!
We met at the Rotary Trail downtown and captured a few photos at the iconic Magic City sign before walking down the trail itself a short ways — she knew exactly where to find cool angles with the skyline in the background and greenery juxtaposed with the urban setting. If you haven’t seen Tosha’s photography before, check out her website and Facebook page!
As my pregnancy winds down, I will always be grateful to have these photos to look back on and remember what the last nine months have been like, waiting for Penelope Grace’s arrival. I hadn’t planned on doing a maternity shoot, but when Tosha offered to take some shots of me, I jumped at the chance and I’m so glad I did.
The last nine months have flown by in a lot of ways, and we’re anxiously awaiting getting to meet our little girl, but I’ll always treasure the months of preparing and anticipation, too. These photos are a wonderful keepsake of that time!
Another big thanks to Tosha Gaines Photography!
