Isabel Oli did not miss the chance of documenting in photography her pregnancy with her baby number three.
On Sunday, June 14, Isabel and her husband, John Prats, shared photos of her maternity shoot—taken at their very own garage under strict quarantine rules.
In her post, Isabel said it was definitely an experience to do such a photo shoot without her usual glam team and photo crew.
She wrote, "Prolly definitely one for the books. Will certainly treasure this in my heart forever. (Not just me but our little Pratty who’s on the way [heart eyes emoji])
"Consider this a part of the new norm, but I’m really praying and hoping for change and miracle.
"Instead of idly waiting for the medicine and vaccine of COVID-19, we have a choice to be creative and productive, right?
"And this is us, the Pratties, squeezing our creative juices to make this photo shoot come to happen. Anyway, we did our maternity shoot in our garage."
John and his sister Naomi Prats took turns in taking Isabel's photos.
Flourish and Frills Concept Design Studio arranged the shoot's set design.
And Isabel actually didn't need a glam team.
She practically outdid herself as her own stylist from head to foot, hair and makeup and all.
Apart from looking marvelous, Isabel is captured glowing and exuding quiet joy for the new life in her womb.
Isabel wrote, "My husband @johnprats and my sissy @naomiprats took the photos. I did my makeup and hair. Say, teamwork!!! [laughing emoji]
"I’m so used to having my own glam team, stylist, photographer and studio.
"So imagine how overwhelmed we were while the doing the shoot, but it was all worth it.
"I would say that it made it all the more special—doing it with people who matter to me. So going to share with you some photos my hubby and sissy took."
She continued, "And yes, I know, some of you will comment on my big tummy but please, spare me the bashing.
"OB said baby #3 and I are healthy, normal and doing okay.
"Huge shoutout to @flourishandfrills who styled and did everything beautiful. Made our garage look magical!
"And @larosanovia for making me like a super girly momma! Beautiful robe by the way!!!?? #PreggyLiv #35weeks #MaternityShoot"
For his part, John expressed his pride for scoring another family achievement even under quarantine.
Part of his Instagram caption read: "Kami lang din ng Sister ko na si @naomiprats ang nag-shoot.
"Kahit papaano may magandang shoot kami para sa 3rd baby namin and sa malaking moment na to sa pamilya namin.
"Salamat Lord God for keeping us safe."
Isabel is now on her 35th week of pregnancy, and is very excited to meet her baby girl.
Isabel and John announced that they are having another baby last March 29, 2020.
Prior to their announcement, they already did a gender reveal party on John's birthday last February 14. Isabel and John proudly announce that they are having another baby girl.
They already have two children—Lily Feather, 4, and Freedom, 2.
