I love doing maternity sessions that include big brothers and sisters in the making! Its so cool documenting their last moments as a family of three! I know years from now this baby will have such a sense of love and belonging when they view the album from this session. Seeing how happy and excited their family is to welcome them into this world is an unbelieveable gift to this new baby!
I don’t want to ruin the surprise for anyone… but pregnancy is tough. Its definitely not the time when you feel your most glamorous and its easy to understand why lots of women skip doing maternity portraits… BUT what better time to play dress up in the dozens of different maternity gowns we have here at the studio? Why not get dolled up and at least have a few hours of celebrating this pregnant body?
I adore creating maternity portraits because I know that these will be cherished memories years down the road. I love knowing that these babies will be able to look back and see how much they were loved before they ever entered the world. They will be able to see the special bond their parents had with them and hopefully share these images with their own children. Looking back, as bad as I felt pregnant, I still wish I had captured that time and could share it with my children.
Oh my goodness did this little one make me laugh! Her personality really shines through and how perfect is it that she is a big part of this maternity session? Too often we think this is just a change for mom, but a new baby is a big change for the whole family! I love these moments of capturing little ones before they become big sisters and big brothers!
The very first time I photographed AnnaMarie was for her first maternity session. After lots of sessions with them for that baby’s first year, it looked like a maternity session was on the back burner, but I would definitely be photographing baby sister when she arrived.
This year, I am making massive changes to the maternity session options here at the studio. I have dozens of new maternity gowns and of course the brand new angel wings that we created here at the studio. So… when I did a model call for expecting mothers, of course AnnaMarie was at the top of the list!
I am so glad that we got to play and capture these images that I know this baby girl will cherish once she is grown!
Ashley unfortunately didn’t get to do maternity portraits with her first pregnancy as her blood pressure spiked and her daughter had to be born super early. She wasn’t about to let that happen this time, so we did her maternity portraits earlier than most at 30 weeks. She was STUNNING in every single outfit, but the black dress really makes me think of Michelle Obama. Not a bad doppleganger to have, right!?
I so hope to meet this little one when she arrives!
