More Lori Dorman Photo's

Pregnancy Photo Shoot

I thought it would be fun to have professional photos taken of my pregnancy.  Pregnancy to me has been a precious and beautiful time in my life.  I am cherishing every moment because I know being pregnant only happens a finite number of times in any women's life.

Michael and I wanted a very "intimate" setting.  So, for this reason I am not able to post all of the pictures except for a few that did not show too much ;)

The photo's were done by an amazing children & pregnancy photographer Lori Dorman in Los Angeles.

I promised to post the pictures of Isabella's shower almost a month ago, opps ;)

So, the shower turned out wonderfully thanks to my dear friend Desiree and other family and friends it was perfect!

It took place in Newport Coast, and there was a turn out of almost 45 women.  My sister Jessica, who is a photographer in training took over 400 pictures of the days events.  Here's a few of my favorites...

more 3/D fun

one more for fun!

3D Short Clips of Isabella Swan

A few weeks ago Michael & I got 3/D pictures of baby Isabella.  It's amazing what can be done with technology now a days.  I especially loved showing these mini clips to my grandparents, they were in awe of how much detail you could see while the baby is still in the womb.  They reminded me that when they were pregnant they did not even have 2D ultrasounds done,  let alone 3D.  And gender?!  Well, that was not discovered until you gave birth!!!  Talk about a surprise.  Here is Isabella Swan at 30 weeks.  I enjoyed watching her so much that I think I may go back in a few weeks.  
So far, we think she has Michael's nose, my eyebrow line, my mom's cheeks, and my lips!!! She's absolutely beautiful. Well, I'm partial of course ;)
