Libraries: the new go-to destination for maternity photos #Maternity portraits#libraries#pregnancy April 14 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride It's National Library Week, and we're celebrating on Offbeat Mama! Photog and mama-to-be Tenley Clark had a pretty sweet idea for week 23 of her on-going maternity series: take it in the library! I think the only way these photos could be any better is if the characters from the books hopped out of the pages and partook in the session. All photos by Tenley Clark. "Let's just be super cute and slightly nerdy right now." Kissing in the book shelves! Scandal! You know what that leads to? Oh… wait. I think they do. Check out the rest of the maternity series here!

And nerdy. 7 agree Reply These are sooooo fricken cute! 2 agree Reply I am IN LOVE with her blog now. After reading her "about me" page (which is fantastic) I think we were separated at birth. 1 agrees Reply Tenley, I love your photography. Do you shoot weddings or are you willing to consider it? I checked your website but could not really see a better way to contact you. 1 agrees Reply Love Love Love these photos! And I am loving the Library Week in OB-Land 1 agrees Reply That is one beautiful woman … And I LOVE her fairytale/shadow pictures. What a great concept. Pictures like that make me wish I weren't doing a themed nursery because I would love to include that Peter Pan one (you know, just to bring it back to the topic of babies :-P) 1 agrees Reply LOVE these! We did our engagement pictures at the library where I work, so this is totally in keeping with our theme! Can't wait to maternity pictures in the exact same spot! Reply These are so great! If I get pregnant again I am definitely going to be more creative with my portraits. Reply Fabulous! And totally unrelated, but has anyone else noticed the little Offbeat Empire feed at the bottom that is in Star Wars font? EPIC WIN. Reply Aurora, thanks for noticing! My developer made the little Offbeat Empire icon, admitting that she "had experience with Star Wars graphics," which made me quite happy. 😛 That little feedbar is going to be going on all three sites next week (we're testing it on Mama this week before expanding). I'm excited about it! Reply So cute! 🙂 I love this idea. 1 agrees Reply Thank you so much for all your kind words everybody! I'm glad everyone likes the idea. A big thank you to Offbeat Mama for featuring our little series! =) 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
