MATERNITY WEEK!

SAWYER, 'BUCKY', MICHELLE, JARON

Michelle is due at the end of the month, so the other day we took some fun maternity shots, a few of which I'll share with you this week.  If you've ever tried to get an 18 month old to cooperate in any way, including taking photographs, you know you've got to be tricky.  I envisioned this shot with Sawyer pointing to Michelle's belly, but the only way we could get him to do it was to tape a cracker to her belly, which you can see in the photo.  I was going to photoshop it out, but thought it was fun to leave it in.

Ahhhh! Excellent idea! Bribery with crackers! My grandson is 18 months old and he is really hard to catch in any kind of pose; he does love him some Pepperidge Farm fish crackers though! LOL! Next time I have the chance to photograph him, I'll be leaving a cracker-crumb trail!

That photo is wonderful.

great idea and she looks ready to pop. you also caputred joy on her face and on Sawyers face, even if it was for a cracker. can't wait for the rest of them.

I don't know if i would have thought of taking a cracker to the mother's belly. What an imaginative idea! Great picture, by the way! I've just realized what I like so much about your blog. You think outside of the box!

What great pictures of Michelle, Jaron and Sawyer. It would be great if Bucky showed up on Grandpa Larsen's birthday.
