Blink, and those forty weeks of pregnancy will be a long lost memory (those late night baby kicks to the ribs might be a different story). Preserve the special moments – while keeping distant relatives updated on the progress of your blooming belly week-by-week – with one of these brilliant (and simple) maternity photo ideas.

Use Produce as a Prop

You know those emails you sign up for in the beginning of your pregnancy? The ones that use different fruits and vegetables to give you an idea of how big your baby is each week. Use that as your inspiration for a cool baby bump photo series, like photographer Becca Rillo did for her friend’s pregnancy. Bonus: It gives you a reason to eat leeks and bok choy.
