Celebrating the bump with Cottony Photography

I’m really glad I went with Cottony Photography for my maternity shoot. I was looking forward to doing a maternity shoot regardless of how fat or ugly I may look.

Pregnancy Fears Puts New Meaning Into Baby Blues

You know, today I decided to talk a little about pregnancy fears, and how I feel about being… pregnant and being a mother so very soon. You’ll think 9-10 months is a short gestation time but really, ask any mother to be and they’ll tell you it really isn’t. The first trimester passes by the quickest. You really only find out you are pregnant around 7-10 weeks (missed period after the 4th week). By then, more than half your first trimester…
