Bun in the Oven Maternity Session

The session we have for you today is so fun! Monica Hines of Mo Hines Photography beautifully captured this vintage-inspired Bun in the Oven maternity shoot, designed by Jenn Elliott Blake of Bow Tie & Bustle. She came up with the concept of a “Bun In The Oven” maternity shoot after visualizing a vintage cooking timer on top of a pregnant belly. She said, “From there the entire shoot design came to life: cookie baking, colorful cooking accessories, billy balls (crespedia), a yellow Kitchen-Aid mixer and funky vintage details. Monica and I scouted for antiques, one of our favorites finds being a stunning robin’s egg blue “Joy of Cooking” cookbook that looked completely stunning with Jenn peeking over the top and her gorgeous belly underneath.” Enjoy all the cute details, and if you’d like to see lots more, click the gallery link at the bottom of the post!
