Lindsey is from Florida and has worked in online and print media. Her happy place is Michaels craft store.

When it was time for Kristin Johnston to decide where she wanted to take her maternity photos, the mom could have gone to the beach or a field of flowers.

Instead, she decided to stay local, in Atlanta, and do the shoot at her favorite place to eat: Taco Bell!

“It’s amazing seeing how many people identify with the love of Taco Bell,” Kristin tells LittleThings.

Kristin posted the photos to her website, Strollers and Stilettos, and she’s received an amazing response from other moms who also crave the popular fast food during their pregnancy.

Kristin wrote that she felt inspired to go against the grain and have her maternity shoot at Taco Bell because it shows the mom in her “natural state.”

Wearing a gorgeous red dress (which only cost her $35) and pearl jewelry, Kristin and her photographer captured some amazing maternity pictures.

Kristin Johnston is a blogger and a mommy from Atlanta who is expecting her second child.

She has one adorable little boy named Sawyer.

Besides loving all things fashion and babies, Kristin also really loves Taco Bell.

So, when it came time to take maternity photos, the mom-to-be knew the popular fast-food restaurant would be her location!

Kristin’s friend Kelly Daniels photographed the mom in a beautiful red dress that complemented Taco Bell’s decor.

“I guess you could say that I wanted something a little different, something spicier — and that showed me in my natural state,” Kristin wrote on her website.

Kristin decided to pay homage to her favorite fast-food spot because it always satisfies her cravings.

“I felt inspired to have my maternity shoot at one of my favorite places, a place that I can turn to anytime I get a craving or just don’t have the energy to cook dinner,” she wrote.

Kristin ordered her favorite items from the menu and even looked elegant as she dug into a taco.

The mom-to-be has been getting an incredible response from people all over the world about her unique maternity shoot.

“I definitely did not see this big of a response coming,” she told LittleThings. “I was pleasantly surprised at just my friends’ and family’s reaction, and seeing how many people identified with it out of that group!”

Kristin organized the photo shoot with her local Taco Bell and had the whole joint to herself.

“Huge thanks to Taco Bell for always being there for me in my time of taco needs, and for helping my dream come true of having this shoot at one of your beautiful Atlanta locations!” she wrote.

“Just the beginning – you’re my forever little one!” she captioned this adorable photo, showing her posing with taco sauce.

Kristin proves that moms can look gorgeous no matter where they have their maternity shoots.

There’s no doubt that these will be great memories to look back on once her baby is born!
