Maternity photography is a somewhat pretty new thing. In fact, I don’t even remember it being a “thing” when I was pregnant with my 10 and 7 year olds.
And to be completely honest, many women don’t feel their best while they are pregnant. Sure, it can be a magical, meaningful, transformative time. But that doesn’t mean you have to love it.
A lot of women have hesitations about being captured while pregnant. When your body feels like it’s completely foreign to you. And many have a TON of hesitations about being the centre of attention for a photo shoot during this time.
But, I want to share with you three reasons why I KNOW you should have maternity photos taken.
#1. Your body is doing magnificent work. Your body is growing a human. Your heart is literally beating for two. You have such a powerful body that it can sustain life for both you and your unborn baby. You NEED photos of your body when it is doing such a sacred job.
#2. Your family dynamic is about to change. Whether this is your first baby. Whether you have a fur baby. Whether you have 3 kids and this is your 4th. This baby will quite literally change EVERYTHING. It is very special to capture what your family looks like right now before it all changes. Sure, the change is for the better, but what you are right now is special and it should be documented.
#3. You will forget what it’s like to be pregnant. Trust me, you might not feel like that right now, but you WILL forget. My friends, my kids are 10 and 7. I have about 2 photos of me pregnant with my first, which my husband quickly snapped of me right before delivery. I cherish those photos. Even though he cut off my damn head in them!! Sometimes I rack my brain trying to remember what it felt like to carry my two babies inside my body. Even if you don’t love being pregnant, and my friends, that is ok. I absolutely hated being pregnant (probably because I’m a control freak and my body obviously had a mind of it’s own) You will want to remember what it felt like and these photos will help take you back.
Bonus number #4.
You deserve to have photos where you look like a queen, like the glowing beautiful goddess that you are!! Period. And any maternity photographer will make you feel that way. ME especially.
So don’t hesitate to have those maternity photos taken. You won’t regret it. 🙂
