Most women haven't had a professional photograph of themselves since high school portraits or since their wedding day. There isn't time like there used to be; the kids are the priority; the career is king; your identity is part of a couple. You are all of these and none of these all at once. You don't cease to exist because of your job, your marriage, or your children. You really live because of them. Don't cease to exist in photographs. Celebrate the person behind all of your roles with beauty or rouge portraits.
Maternity photos are not just about a bump. They are not something we do just for our children to look back on. They are a way for us to celebrate the baby we’re about to meet, to celebrate our family before the baby, and to celebrate the strength and beauty of our bodies. That baby bump is beautiful. You are beautiful. Celebrate the life you are creating.
As a nursing mother, I understand how important the breastfeeding relationship is to both mother and child. You deserve to have this part of your life memorialized and celebrated instead of have it become of of the many fading memories. Celebrate this unique experience you share with your child.
Celebrate the sweet baby who has changed your life. Document the little details unique to him. Have photographs that honor the peaceful, curled up state your baby lived when he was inside you, and have photographs which honor the connection between him and you. It is never too early to start planning your baby's newborn session. The window to capture that unique, newborn peace is as small as they are.
You spent nearly a year waiting to meet your baby. He is here, and you are see changes in his features, his personality, and his abilities daily. Celebrate each of these changes and milestones that happen through the first year of his life with portraits.
