I started my photography journey after my first was born, prior to that I never knew about a maternity photography or what that even was. I’m actually not even sure that was a thing 7 years ago when I was pregnant! A few years later when I was pregnant with my last baby, I took the leap and had the most beautiful maternity session ever. Or at least that is how I feel when I look at those images now!! The actual session felt super chaotic (2 toddlers on a beach and in the heat plus a very pregnant mama! Ha!), I was sweating profusely, and I felt like a giant whale…..BUT now I look at those images and just remember. I remember how it felt when my son moved inside my belly. The feeling of my daughter resting her head on my belly so she could listen to her baby brother. The way I still managed to snuggle each of kids despite my giant belly. I remember how it felt to carry my last baby, something I feel like I am forgetting more and more.
I know that pregnancy is a time of not feeling like yourself and some woman just don’t feel beautiful, but that is not how I see pregnancy for the mamas in front of my lens. I see the beauty in the life they are carrying, the joy, the anticipation, the worry, the pain, and all the other feelings that come with being pregnant. I see an amazingly strong woman growing LIFE, often time while carrying for other little people. I strongly believe that you will want to remember this moment, even if you don’t love being pregnant! If this is your first baby or fifth baby, this is part of your story. You are growing this beautiful human inside your body, you should capture that time, whether with me or another photographer. Trust me, you will forget…And trust me you want to remember! You will so desperately want to remember.
