Alyssa and Stephen's circus and Dr. Seuss inspired maternity session #Maternity portraits#maternity#outdoors#pregnancy Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jul 24 2012) Offbeat Editors All photos by Brandi Thompson Photography. Alyssa and Stephen are fans of bright colors, Dr. Seuss (Alyssa has a Truffula Trees tattoo!), and the circus. In fact, Alyssa used to work for a circus, and Stephen knows how to juggle. The pair asked Dallas-based Brandi Thompson Photography to capture their maternity fun.

According to Brandi there are more shots available, but they feature the baby's name. Alyssa and Stephen are keeping their baby's name a secret until after his or her birth in August, so for now our maternity fun starts here. So I guess you could close out the window… or you could scroll right back to the top and indulge in this series all over again.
