We’ve all see those gorgeous maternity shoots where exposed bumps are shown in flattering, natural light while the mom-to-be stands in flowing garb with a wreath of flowers in her hair next to a lake or a summer field of flowers or some crap. And so had expectant mother Kristin Johnston. But instead of planning something ethereal for her maternity photos during her second pregnancy, she decided to go with a setting that would instead remind her and her son of how she spent most of their nine months together – eating at Taco Bell.
“I adore every beautiful maternity shoot where the mom-to-be is on a beach or mountain or meadow, but this was so much more reflective of me and my personality,” she told Romper in an interview.
Johnston was a regular patron at the fast food chain before her pregnancies, but during the nine-month stints, she craved the delicious Crunchwrap Supremes, beefy burritos, tacos, and Mexican pizzas that only Taco Bell could deliver. So it kind of makes sense that the restaurant chain should provide the backdrop for her (actually beautiful) pregnancy photos.
“I chose to do the shoot because, not only have I been a huge fan of Taco Bell for my whole life, but also because I have spent a good amount of time and money there during my pregnancies.”
Honestly I can’t think of a better reason to choose a backdrop. Her son, Theodore, will probably love the place, too, and they’ll have a great story – complete with photos – for the rest of their lives.
