Last Minute Pregnancy Pictures

Right before Bre went into labor we did a “bump” featuring shoot at Backdrop City. I tend to be pretty modest in fashion, so there haven’t been very many bump-centric pictures taken, and I wanted to capture these last moments. [FLRN DESIGN]’s Lae Love Momma Top & Sarong in store group gift worked pretty well for showing that curve off. *smile*

A little throwback to the 2 month pictures of the “peanut”, with the sarong set and the month banner. *smile*

I somehow failed to write down which pose this is; I am so sorry! I love it enough that I had to include it still. If you know, please drop me a comment and I’ll up the post with the credit, otherwise I’ll keep sifting through all of the poses I’ve tried lately so that I can properly credit it.

I know it’s not your traditional pregnancy baby bump photoshoot, but I love how these turned out at Backdrop City and how adorable the Zooby LoveMomma looks at full term.

A Wintery Babymoon Part 3

Bre and Luke spent a quiet night at home on the last day of the babymoon, enjoying the comfort and beauty of the holiday lights, and this peaceful time together.

A Wintery Babymoon Part 2

The next stop on the babymoon was at Winter Daydreams. There are a variety of areas to explore from romantic alcoves to little indoor spots to escape the cold for a bit or for a sweet little photo opportunity. The default WL has a neat look, especially with the Christmas lights dangling, but I also played with them a bit since they emphasize different aspects of the neat build.

There’s quite a nice gazebo for photo opportunities just after you TP in

There are some neat spots tucked away, so make sure to wander or cam about.

There are even spots for dancing

To end their babymoon they headed back home while Eva had Emma and Niall, to enjoy some quiet time at home before the baby arrived, in part 3.

A Wintery Babymoon Part 1

With the coming birth of their first Zooby Animesh Newborn, Bre and Luke went on a little babymoon. As you probably have guessed by now, if you’ve read a few of the posts lately, I love Moochie’s holiday sim, so that was the first stop.

A few dances at the center “gathering” space

Snowy snuggles are the best

As always, a wander through the landscape to discover the beautiful little places tucked among the trees.

Tip: Shared environment WL is great, but you can catch some amazing moments with settings like Blizzard

There are several spots for avatars to snuggle, talk, take pictures, or enjoy the scheduled story stream that plays. Two seating spots had poses that looked adorable to me, which admittedly became difficult as the pregnancy was about to come to term, because most animations cause some distortion. I love these two shots. 🙂

Bre decided to take a break on a bench along the lake, where there is ice skating and other little spots to discover, while Luke explored. I’m so jealous of how well Moochie can decorate and create a whole scene.

With the snow gently falling, this is a beautiful spot to find some peace during a usually hectic time.

The happy couple continued their babymoon at a few other locations on the grid in the upcoming two posts…

Baby Bump Shoot at Moochie’s

I absolutely love going to Moochie’s sim for Fall and Winter! I was honored enough to get to chat with her a few times over the years, when she also had a very popular store, and then blown away by her landscape. Not only is Moochie’s sim beautiful with tons of places for photography, hanging out with friends, and exploring, but she even allows you to set your home location there! The generosity she’s always shown made me a loyal group member years ago, but I always look forward to exploring when she sets up a season on the sim. She even has a stream you can play during the Christmas season, which I photographed info about too.

Since Baby 3 is about to be born, a few bump-centric shoots are in order, so I found myself at Moochie’s quite often, and decided to make one post for different favorite spots on her sim.

Although I had taken a bunch of shots in this area, I love how adorkable the next pose looked and want to share it.

And here is the info from a sign on Moochie’s land for listening to the stream.

My husband and I actually came back to listen to the stream once while doing another photoshoot. Lower your WLs, pick one of the cute sitting spots around the sim, and have a relaxing time during the busy holiday season. Between the landscape and the reading at Moochie’s, your blood pressure will drop back down to normal. 😉

The Miix Event

I have been hitting the different events between wandering the beautifully decorated sims across the grid and wanted to show off one find that I was very impressed with. First, if you’re not familiar with the Seraphim website, they have a ton of info about sales with galleries, so I’m going to share the link to the Miix page here. Note: It’s SL, so some pictures on their site won’t be as modest as things I would post, but it’s a gallery picture page to show what each booth has. I’m just window shopping and not actually shopping right now, but I noticed an AO that has some cool features. Salt’n’Pepper put out Bento Set AO 4 and it is curve-friendly. I don’t know if many others struggle with this, but with a curvier avatar while Bre is pregnant, I’ve noticed that almost every non-pregnancy related AO I have tends to have some animations that cause arms and hands to go into the avatar body or they’re super exaggerated to accomodate a fluffy ballroom gown. Although Salt’n’Pepper’s AO is a bit pricier than I normally pay, if I was going to keep the fuller figure that Bre currently has, I think it’s definitely worth it. They have a demo at the event, so you can try it out and check if it works for your figure (I know it seems obvious, but I totally didn’t think of it a few times, so make sure to cam around your avi while trying the demo, to see if arms seem too far away from the body during movements, such as an idle movement of brushing hair back). And I admit that I am a sucker for a more elegant and less fidgety AO, despite my tendency to go for whimsy or adorkable. Just look at their ad!

And now to show you a few of my favorite ones I took pictures of, to show how it works with the Zooby LoveMomma Persephone body at almost full term…

Sometimes a nice stand without the hands up is super handy, in my opinion.

Just a touch of sass when walking 🙂

This is honestly the first AO where her hand hasn’t clipped into her hip or her arm through her torso, or been awkwardly further than the body frame is.

And I don’t use bags often, but this looks like it’d be perfect with a clutch. It’s still a dash posh to me, so I kind of love it. lol

If you’re not familiar with Seraphim, here’s their link and I definitely recommend checking it out. I’ve discovered so many events and items I probably would never have come across in my usual grid travels, and it also helps me remember what events are going on since I might have an issue with capping out my groups and notifications… 🙂

Wrap Me Up in Luna

I was lucky enough to get my gaming pixel hands on the megapack of the Luna outfit by Whimsical Designs and loved the red option so much I decided Bre needed to go explore Luane’s World’s newly redone Le Monde Perdu in Autumn. This set is definitely a head turner for Halloween, especially on the LoveMomma body! I typically dress Bre a little more modestly, but wow, I just couldn’t resist wrapping her up in the saucy red print. *grin* Luna is 99L for each color top, skirt, or stockings (sold separately); giving mix or match options; or a Megapack of 8 varieties in 5 variations for 899L. I love the ability to change the top to solid black while sporting the fun patterns, so sometimes a fatpack/megapack is right up my alley, especially when it’s a themed item, since it’s too easy to wear a themed outfit once and then lose it in the recesses of the inventory instead of having ways to incorporate pieces into more outfits. Plus, there are multiple colors, so you’re not bound to what most consider “Halloween orange”, too.

Bre started the evening exploring near the landing point at the first strand of lights visible, since you know I’m a sucker for lights. *laugh*

I couldn’t resist adding the cute little black cat tattoo on the baby bump and twirling helped Carol G’s tattoo peek out of the sexy skull and crossbones pattern that I just adore in the Luna set.

I wanted to check out the windmill and noticed that this spot framed her really well while my usual Tuty’s Dainty AO had Bre making some adorable poses, so no poseballs or furniture used for this shoot! Just wait for Luke to see this Halloween treat…I mean, baby bump outfits are usually cute, not downright sexy like this and just waiting to be unwrapped!

At nightfall I found my way to a firelit gazebo near a rainy patch of the beach and managed to catch this model-type moment. The fire and LumiPro did a stellar job of showing that this combo is gorgeous from behind, too! Usually I make my laptop wallpaper into the latest cute SL family or couple pic, but I’m going to be admiring this picture for a few days. *grin* I personally love how it all looks from behind, but not in a creepy way. *laugh*

Bre ended the night watching the waves and rain at the sand’s edge. I couldn’t resist taking this last shot that gives a full view of the outfit, but also shows how it wraps around the body so well, even at 7 months along. With a little of the right lighting you get the chance to see the delicate side of this Halloween show stopper. Just be prepared to get some risque IMs – I warned you. *wink*

I look forward to swapping the colors of the pieces around after Halloween and creating some other enticing looks, especially for the Babymoon when Luke gets back from his mission. Hubba hubba. *grin* One of my favorite things about SL is that my alter ego gets to be the less shy and prettier version of the me in my head – I couldn’t have pulled this off so stunningly while pregnant, but thanks to Whimsical Designs and SL, I think Luke will definitely approve of this post and pack!

A Magical Morning Together

Luke and I decided to explore Luanes Magical World today and found this beautiful little gazebo. With a little windlight magic and a softer clarity, we had a magical moment of our own, celebrating four months along. We couldn’t resist a loving pregnancy pose I had found at Reina’s Photography and been holding onto until her bump really started to show more.




RP pose CP0028

We usually stick to the regular Luanes World sim and explore her landscaping (and maybe copy a few ideas when we’re needing to change things up *grin*), but I highly recommend checking out her Magical World sim. Just remember to use a default or magical type of windlight in order to get to appreciate all of the beautiful details and work that Luane put into the land. There are a ton of little getaways tucked into the trees, down the mystical paths, and behind light beams.

I was lucky enough to get the Abby Top from Whimsical Design’s that I paired with the maxi skirt part of outfit 4 from Bluebird Baby, which was the perfect height of crop to show off that sweet little baby bump for Luke to whisper fairytails of magic to. It’s a smock style type with ruched sleeves and a high-low style crop which I found versatile enough to wear with the maxi skirt but paired really well with jeans too, so I’d definitely recommend checking out this new addition to her LoveMomma line.

I want to keep this short and sweet, since it was such a magical moment that it deserves to stand by itself, so following are the credits (SLurls subject to change of course, but I tried to provide what I could).

Whimsical Designs’ Lottie is Bringing Some Sexy to the Pregnant in SL Event

In case you haven’t heard, there’ll be a highly anticipated event for all those RPing pregnancy in SL – Pregnant In SL!

I was lucky enough to get my pixel hands on Whimsical Designs’ Lottie Outfit, which will premiere at the event in singles and in a fatpack. It is “a matching tank and panty set in 14 colors with lacy trim. Fits LoveMomma and LoveBody…Available only at the Pregnant in SL Event…”. I’m all for some comfy clothing, but whoa Momma! Not only is it totally cute for hanging out at home or with your partner, but it can be one hot little number with the right setting!

“I Only Have Eyes for You” or “She’s Every Woman”? I might just go with “Unforgettable” for this theme song. *wink*

Luke had to show a little appreciation for finding his wife daydreaming in this outfit…

“You Are So Beautiful”

I’m not showing pictures of marriage if there isn’t one of those awkward chatting moments. *grin*

And check out the back of those panties! I love the high/low of the tank, but that’s “one hot mama” there!

I had to include one of her sitting pretty without a bed or spouse involved, so you can see just how comfy this outfit also looks. *grin* Boy does it show off the bump stages perfectly too!

I can’t wait for the event and hope this gives a heads up to a few LoveMomma enjoyers out there too! 🙂

Quiet Time

With so much going on lately, Bre took a quiet day while Eva had Niall and Emma for the weekend. Between Whimsical Designs’ knee high sports socks and LoveMomma’s (available right there in the store) oversized jersey, yoga and some napping were a must. Usually a sports sock would call for some tennis, rollerskating, or softball, but they made a perfect lounging sock this time!

Sporty lounge wear can still be sexy and adorable!

Time for a little nap before Sis brings the kids home…
