I have a confession to make. When I first saw maternity photographs they did not impress me. I thought it was weird to focus on a growing belly. It just seemed weird to me. At that time I was having babies, and to be honest I felt kind of hideous when I was pregnant. Looking back at photos of myself I can now appreciate that I didn’t look bad. I was just too hard on myself, as most women are.
Now as I’m older and wiser, and have a much better perspective on life and what’s beautiful I LOVE maternity sessions. I think pregnant women are so beautiful! I especially love seeing them with their families. They absolutely glow when they are with their spouses and children.
This maternity session is definitely one of my favorites. Their little guy could not be any cuter, and his energy and sass made me so happy. What I love most about it though, was how happy they look together. Their big smiles fill me with joy I cannot describe. THIS is why I’m a family photographer. THIS is what I want to leave my clients with.
To all the moms, and moms to be out there, please know how beautiful you are! Your body is doing MIRACULOUS things! Giving birth is the most selfless, difficult, and loving thing you could do. It still blows me away that my own body was able to grow 4 children. It was the very best thing I ever did, and I will always be so grateful I could be a mother.
