It was my honor and privilege to document this beautiful woman’s pregnancy. There is nothing about this session I didn’t love and the images that came out of this session are… Simply. Stunning. It was so nice to meet and work with a woman truly comfortable and happy with her pregnant body. It was so inspiring. Her beauty, both inner and outer, just shone through on these images. I love the drama of the first two, and the organic feel of the last four.
You did it for your wedding. You may have done it for your engagement. You will do it for her first birthday. You will do it for his 2nd birthday and every birthday thereafter. And you will definitely do it for each and every graduation.
What is it that you did? Celebrate. You will celebrate the milestones of your life and of your children’s lives. You will mark each and every special moment in some way – be it big or small – and for so, so many of them, you will hire a professional photographer. Why? Because those photos are ever so important to you, because the moments are irreplaceable, and because you can’t waste time being behind the camera because you are far too busy being in front of it, living it – exactly where you need to be. So… tell me. Why is that you don’t see your pregnancy that way?
I’m here to tell you that you need to stop and see that. Before it’s gone. Before you are 39.5 weeks and your doctor is talking about an induction and you finally start to realize – this little miracle that has been going on for the past 9 months is about to be over and convert over to a new and different miracle. A new miracle that needs to be celebrated on it’s own, in it’s own way - differently.
But now…right now… it’s your time. It’s a special time, a special milestone and a special moment to capture. I don’t care if it’s your 1st or 5th pregnancy. Any woman will tell you – each and every pregnancy is special. Your body is changing, your relationship with your signficant other is about to change, your relationship with your other children is about to change and you, yourself, are changing. Why wouldn’t you celebrate?! That’s what a maternity session is – a celebration.
Here is Tanya. Well into her 33rd week of expecting her 2nd child, a little girl (who was born last week, btw, and yes, now you know how far behind I am on blogging!). She is the cousin who probably looks most like me. We are so alike in so many ways. And while I often see her as kind of a little sister, here I see her as a woman, a mother…and all the undeniable beauty that comes with that.
For maternity sessions, I definitely feel the need and desire to experiment more – not just with posing, lighting, and locations – but with processing as well. It’s the only time I will ever really deviate from my fresh, clean, vibrant processing. So here is a softer and creamier processing that I loved for this particular portion of this session…
So, if you are pregnant and still on the fence about a maternity session – just remember, whatever you decide – this is most definitely a time to celebate! =)
This beautiful mama to be was up for anything – including braving the waters of this huge pond. I just found out last night that her baby girl arrived on Friday so I figured I’d better hurry up and blog her maternity before the newborn session! See you soon T!
You read that right. She’s expecting TWINS. Yes… there are two babies in there. How, I don’t know… but she tells me they are in there. Can I tell you how excited I am about these babies? They’ll be here in just a few short weeks – identical boys – and I get to do their newborn session!
I literally squealed out loud when I read the email telling me she was having twins… you see, she’s been my client for a long time now and has become more than just a client… You might recognize her seriously adorable daughter (who’s always all over my website – and my samples!) from past work… it’s been so fun watching her grow up and now to see her become a big sister to two little brothers – well, this is one of the perks of being a family portrait photographer that makes it so worthwhile. I get to be there for this family to document momentous occasions in their lives… toddlerhood, holidays, pregnancy, and soon – two new additions to their family.
Anyway, back to how fabulous she looks…
Loved this color combo on her…
