Underwater at 8 months pregnant #Family portraits#art#pregnancy#sports December 15 2009 | Guest post by Marina Miller We've featured wedding photographer Marina Miller's work on Offbeat Bride several times, and now she's on the verge of having her fourth child — in fact, she's being induced TODAY! To celebrate, I wanted to share her thoughts on pursuing your passions through pregnancy and raising children… While trying to stay in shape (yeah, right!), keep working, and let out some creative energy while pregnant with baby #4, I decided it was time to move my work into the ocean. I bought an SPL water housing and have been shooting every week while my three boys are in school. Being in the ocean is second nature to me. In fact, with all this extra water weight, it hardly takes any effort to stay afloat. As long as my subjects understand my level of confidence in the water and are patient with my slow waddle on dry land, it's a win win for both parties! I have 2 more sessions planned before my due date and I am so excited to play more after I have this little guy. My advice to other mommys-to-be is to keep doing what you love and find a way to make it work even after the baby. Taking care of your passions and creative outlet is just as important as what you put in your mouth. Feed your soul! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.
