I just can’t even describe how much I love maternity sessions. If I could tell every expecting mom ONE SINGLE THING. Here it is: You are more beautiful than you will ever know. I also have a little secret… I hate to admit this as a maternity photographer… I never had maternity photos taken. I didn’t even know it was a thing! But man do I wish I had. I truly don’t think I’ve ever felt as beautiful as I did when I was pregnant myself. So my goal with maternity photos is to show the amazing moms-to-be how beautiful they really are.
It’s especially fun when the husbands join in on the photos. Maternity typically is just the mom of course, but husband’s can jump in on some! One of my other favorite things about maternity photo shoots is SEEING the husband’s response to their beautiful wives. I see those glances, I see those smiles. Haha! The end of pregnancy can be rather… uncomfortable, but this is a way that you’re able to look back and remember the beauty in it and not those all the crampy uncomfortable feelings!
This couple reached out to me pretty close to their due date, and I was able to sneak them in when I was coming back from an out of town trip. We had a blast chatting about life, jobs, how crazy and sassy little girls can be! Then! I went back to their house for the ordering session… dad opened the door and was in casual clothes and I’m thinking “Ok, that’s cool. He had a rough day at work, he’s tired. Hey! He’s comfortable around me, that’s nice!” then I saw the infant car seat on the ground and I’m thinking “Ok, they’re just getting prepared!” Then we sit down and he tells me how his wife is on a business call, she’d be down in a few minutes, that they had had a couple busy days because… the baby arrived! So I got to sit right by sweet baby girl during the ordering session. She slept through it, making cooing noise the entire time. I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
