Doing a Demi

I've been meaning to write for a while about the incredible experience I had doing both Bump and Baby photography sessions with Harriet of Buckingham Photography.  A few of the photos are already posted around the blog, but I've done a collage of them here.  Harriet and I both had an absolute blast and a lot of giggles.  She's produced some really fabulous (and flattering) shots.  Even BoyWonder, who hates having his photo taken, admitted that our family shoot "wasn't that bad" - and believe me, that is high praise indeed.

I was enthusiastic about doing a Demi-style shoot - you know the one Annie Lebowitz did of her naked for the cover of Time Magazine.  I've always loved that photo, and I honestly felt beautiful while I was pregnant - I was doing what my body was made for.  Harriet had never done a nude shoot before, so it was a first for both of us, but was in no way awkward.  I was initially hesitant about whether I should share it or not, but figure it's on the Buckingham Photography website, so is already out there in the interwebs... so here goes:

You can win your own sitting and one 10x8 photo with Harriet in her Orpington studio (or give it as a Mother's Day present!), just use the form below to enter.

Disclaimer:  Buckingham Photography gave me the prize to give to a friend - I asked if it could be used as a blog prize.  I paid for my photo shoots and all photos and all views are my own - I think you can tell how much fun we had by the end result. 


  1. It's beautiful! YOU'RE beautiful! I love the Demi shot. All her images are lovely, but that one, it's just beautiful!

  2. I had a pregnancy photoshoot but sadly it wasn't the best studio so wasn't overly pleased with my pics! Would have loved to have done a demi!

    Wow - LOOK AT YOU!  Too gorgeous.  I wouldn't even have the guts to do a nude shoot in a non-pregnant state so I think what you did totally rocks.  Fabulous photographer and fabulous models!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
