The Importance of Maternity Photos
Even though pregnancy comes with a lot of difficult trials, it is an amazing time in your life. It is a time of celebration and of anticipation as you prepare to meet your little bundle of joy. It’s a time where you become strong – stronger than you ever thought you could possibly be. During this time, you create your initial bond with your child that will continue throughout your entire lives.
There are very few women who actually feel like they are beautiful while they are pregnant – especially during the first pregnancy. However, the miracle of pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Swollen feet, stretch marks, and hormone changes aside – you are growing a real live human being inside of you. All of those side effects come from different things your body has to do to help nourish and protect your baby.
You are beautiful, and you should take the time to celebrate these changes and this amazing moment in your life. Your maternity photos will be a great gift to pass down to your child as an heirloom of your first memories with them. This is something they can treasure forever.
If you're looking for a maternity photoshoot, get in touch via my Contact Page. You might also like to consider my bump-to-baby photoshoots, or bump-baby-milestone packages, to document your pregnancy and your baby's first year with a set of coordinating images. It's a lovely idea to use some props from a newborn photoshoot in a child's first birthday photoshoot or cake smash session.
I have a selection of maternity dresses suitable for photoshoots, including the one shown in the image above. I also like to photograph mums to be in their jeans and a stripy t-shirt, or whatever they feel comfortable in, or perhaps even naked to really show off that bump!
