Inspiring Maternity Photos

This is a bit outside of the Crafty Rabbit realm of DIY, junkĀ  and crafts, but I thought I might share our maternity photos we had done a few weeks ago. My husband happens to work with a very talented photographer (Andi Crown Photography at and lucky for us she agreed to do a photo session of us and our bump!

We were lucky with the season as the trees have just started dropping their lovely, golden autumnal leaves, and the late afternoon sun created a wonderful filtered light.

My husband really wanted a photo of us with our childhood toys (see below), he’s holding a teddy bear his mother made him when he was little and I’ve got ‘Monkey’ (appropriately named).

As long as you find a photographer who you gel with and their style speaks to you then you can’t go wrong. I recommend you check out their portfolio of work and make it really clear what appeals to you. I created a Pinterest board of maternity photos ( that appealed to me, then shared it with our photographer so we were both on the same page.

Anybody else had bump photos done recently? I would really love to see them!
