Mama Mia’s Maternity Book

I got an email from Johanna who wanted to share with me {and the Savvy readers} a little project she is working on while awaiting the birth of her daughter. Here is her story~

When I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to document it in a cute way. I didn’t want to just do the weekly pictures of the belly growth standing in the same spot wearing the same thing. I wanted to capture everything that goes along with being pregnant too (minus the gross stuff of course). My main goal though was to create a keepsake that my child would have fun reading when she’s older. I’m always asking my mom about how her pregnancy was with my brother and I and she can’t remember it all. So, if Mia is anything like her mommy (which I’m sure she will be), she will really appreciate having this to look back on.

Don't you love this idea! Such a creative way to document such a wonderful time in our lives that we often do forget the sweet details of.

Thank you Johanna for sharing your precious idea...we can't wait to see what creative things you'll create once she is here! To see more of the book, visit her site here.


  1. Johanna is such an awesome creative photographer, personal friend, and is going to be such a great mom!!! I can't wait to see the outcome of her book :)

  2. That is soooo cute! My pregnant brain wasn't that creative!! :)

  3. That is an awesome awesome idea! Love it!
    So, is she creating as time goes on? it looks like it's an album or press book, like those you print with WHCC. But she couldn't add those as she goes and show them in book form. Do share please.... :)

  4. Melanie,

    I have not created the book yet. I photoshop the page layouts on to a picture of a book each week just to show what it is going to look like once printed.
