Since a full family maternity photo shoot may not be in your budget, I've asked one of my favorite maternity photographers, Karen Haberberg, to share her tips on creative pregnancy poses, props and more to accomplish the most fantastic maternity portraits at home! And Karen's offered a special treat just for my blog readers...more details at the end!</p>
