Top 10 Christmas Maternity Portraits – Happy Holidays

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.

This is my first annual Top 10 Christmas Maternity Photos in North America for 2010. If you want to be entered or considered for next year please send me your photo by 12/8/2011 for next years contest at babynoises (at) gmail (dot) com.  The first 10 photography submissions for the 2011 award are free, after that the cost will be $20 per photo submitted. Hope you enjoy and the photos put a smile on your face.

10. Jennifer Catherine with J Catherine Photography from Greenville, SC took this great Christmas family portrait.  It’s always good to include the other child in the portrait with your baby bump.

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.
