I’m someone who is proud of my fit and muscular abdomen, so when I found out I was pregnant I was worried that after doing the work to get my body back, I might still be left with stretch marks (there goes my #FlexFriday Instagram pictures). I took this series of maternity photos while I was 35 weeks pregnant because I was still worried that I might get them, and I wanted to capture my belly before I did. Thankfully, I avoided even the tiniest mark! So, if you’re pregnant and looking to prevent stretch marks from occurring, enjoy this video from the HairTwoHeels YouTube channel where I talk about what I used and how I used it to prevent the stretch marks from occurring. Also, here are some more shots from our maternity shoot. I shot these myself (with my husband pressing the shutter button) and we saved a lot of money this way. Let me know in the comments below if you’re interested in a post on how we created these shots!
