Maternity photography is still somewhat new,
I was pregnant with my two (19 and 10).
I want to be completely honest, many women don't feel their best while they're pregnant. It can be such a magical, meaningful time, but that doesn't mean you feel amazing.
When your body doesn't look and feel as it usually does, it creates hesitation. Some also don't like being the center of attention.
I want to share three reasons why you should strongly consider having your maternity photos taken.
- Your body is doing magnificent work. You're growing a human! Your heart is beating for two, literally. Having maternity photos taken to document this sacred time is beautiful.
- Your family dynamic is about to change. Whether this is your first baby or fifth baby, this baby will change your life. It is very special to capture what your family looks like right now, before it all changes. Of course the change is for the better, but now is special too.
- You will forget what it's like to be pregnant. As I said above, my kids are 19 and 10 and I do not have one photograph of me pregnant with either of them. Even you don't love being pregnant (or just don't feel great) you will want to remember what it felt like and photos will help take you back.
Bonus number 4.
You deserve photos to have where you look like the queen and goddess you are.
So don't hesitate to have those maternity photos taken. You won't regret it.
