Violet politely (ha!) declined to be in these pictures. These may actually be the last set from my maternity wear series. The way we shot them meant that they were taken towards the end of each week. Meaning that these we taken close to 38 weeks and in case you can't tell from at least one of those photos, I was so over it. The Australian summer heat was intense, I had no mode of transport other than walking most days and so we stayed home and gave ourselves cabin fever. I was more pregnant than I'd ever been with Violet and I just did not feel pretty enough to want to take pictures. Every week from here on out my midwives at the hospital we convinced I wouldn't be making it to my next appointment but I ended up being over due. Looking at these photos now I think I looked quite nice but at the time I felt like a hot (literally) mess who just wanted to meet her baby. It makes me wish I'd taken the next 2 weeks worth of pictures! We did make sure to take some belly pictures just before I gave birth though.
