Why you should have your maternity photos taken?

The importance of having your maternity photos taken...


There are so many things to think about, plan for and purchase when you are getting ready for baby. I'm biased, sure, but as a photographer, I think you should consider adding maternity photos to that list. This is the year that I want each of my uncomfortable, belly growing mamas to realize how beautiful that belly is and how magical this time really is – even when we do not feel beautiful, sexy or mildly attractive.  There is nothing more magical for your children than the story of THEM and how special they are.  Capturing the moment of “That’s you in mommy’s tummy” is precious.  Capturing how beautiful you are while expecting your baby is one of my specialties.  There is nothing that completes your baby’s newborn image book like the photos of you and dad excited and anxiously awaiting for them.

More and more pregnant women have been hiring professional photographers to capture their image in the last month or two pregnancy. 

I went a bit mad searching for ways to make my mothers feel that beauty and not end up with the traditional, boring maternity sessions we have grown accustomed too. I want to capture the amazing beauty of YOU.  It is not just about the belly, but about you feeling beautiful and proud.  Every mother should get maternity photos as to always remember this short time of her life. After all you will only be pregnant a few times (if that) in your entire life.  Even if you do not feel glamorous and beautiful, we can easily draw out the beauty, love and feminity of your pregnancy.

By the way, there is no rule that says you have to go somewhere for your maternity session. Why not let the photographer come to you for a more "lifestyle" approach? You can achieve all of the above in your home environment.
