Maternity Leave and Photoshoot

We celebrated our impending arrival at 38 weeks (nearly 4 weeks ago now) with a special photoshoot in Wellington with Yvonne Liew. I made myself a maternity gown out of a delicious black floral brocade and made it to fit over a maternity corset that I made for myself during my pregnancy.
