I didn’t even known maternity photos were an option.
I was not a photographer at the time I was pregnant and I loved being pregnant. I loved the way I felt and looked and now wish I had something more than cell phone photos to document it.
It is a special fleeting time of such growth inside and out.
I am very deliberate with how I photograph my Moms to be and first and foremost everyone I work with is there to make my Mommies feel special and beautiful, from my makeup and hair artist to my assistant, we are all Moms ourselves and the whole day feels very communal and special.
This special time though is so finite, I find that my Mommies are so surprised with how beautiful they look and value them exponentially more over time. These photos are for the present, yes but they grow even more special as time goes on as my Mommies see the beauty in them more and more as their babies grow.
I truly feel beautiful and pregnancy glow is a real thing. I love ethereal, goddess like photos because these women are creating something and their photos should reflect how beautiful that is.
