A friend of mine just shared a really cute Christmas family portrait sessions with me. It reminded me of being pregnant during the holidays. I started scouring the internet looking for the cutest maternity pictures I’ve ever seen. I could have picked a 100 but I narrowed it down to the top 10. I was happy enough to get this list narrowed down to 10 after looking at probably 1,000 of these things. I plan on doing this every year about this time.
At the end of this page their will be a place to vote on your favorite photo. The winner will win the “People’s choice award for Christmas Maternity Photography” as long as their is at least 100 total votes in the survey.

9.Trisha Faber over at Faber Photography took this stunning Christmas maternity photo including the ultrasound of the new baby, Evan. We all know how proud moms can be of their ultrasound photos and what a great way to capture it.
6. Julie Stephens at Calotype Photography from Joplin, Missouri took this endearing image of a couple’s first Christmas while with child. I remember my first one, nothing as precious as knowing the next Christmas their will be 3 in the family instead of just the two of you.
5. Heather & Lindsay are photographers based out of London & Toronto, Ontario for HRM Photography. This festive holiday portrait captures a mother making a snow angel. This mom must be cold, but she sure doesn’t look like it.
4. Melissa Vandermause from Galleria Vivid Photography from Connecticut took this head turning portrait of a beautiful pregnant belly over at Hillstead museum in Farmington. The lighting, colors, and composition just jump from the page.
1. I saved my favorite one for last. Of course at the end of this blog you can all vote for your favorite from the above 10. Dolly of Dolly G Photography from Massachusetts took this “Hands shaped like a heart” photo. It captures the closeness of the couple and the love for their unborn child in a perfectly composed photograph.
