Hello Mama! Welcome to the exciting and intimidating (but incredibly rewarding) world of Motherhood. I am the first to advocate for mothers. As a former labor and delivery nurse and current mother of two, I know first hand how a little pampering can go a long way—we deserve it! Giving yourself permission to step in front of the camera to show off your badass, human-growing self is healthy and empowering. We encourage expecting mothers to document this unique milestone in your life, and here’s why:
Believe me, pregnancy isn’t all sunshine and frolicking through fields of daisies. It’s full of body changes, hormone fluctuations, and months of anticipation. Mothers deserve a reminder of how incredible this journey is and how strong our bodies are. Yes, you are freakin’ Superwoman! Own your little miracle—you created that.
Damn! Your body can do anything—you’re growing a human! Show off your curves and your stomach! There’s no shame in the changes your body goes through, the weight you gain, or your swollen ankles. Show it off girl, show it off.
Not every pregnancy is the same. Just as every child is different, pregnancy is unique and can be very different. Document and celebrate that unique experience.
You do not need an excuse to treat yourself. You deserve the spotlight—you’re growing a child! You are a superstar and we are here to shower you with praise and words of affirmation. This is an exciting endeavor you’re undertaking, and you are worthy of relaxation and time to celebrate you.
It’s hard to believe, but you’ll forget those little details of how you looked while pregnant and how you felt from day to day. This is a perfect opportunity to capture those special memories and emotions of such a personal and inspiring moment in your life. Documenting this physically and mentally intense and wonderful time in your life can be remembered for years after giving birth.
Your life and the size of your family will never be the same. What better time to take pictures of this time in your life. I’d be more than happy to talk about how far along you’d like to document your pregnancy!
You can show as much skin or as little as you want. This is your maternity boudoir session; make it what you want it to look like. This is an opportunity to show off your powerful, beautiful body. You’re feminine and sexy. Let’s chat about posing, outfits, and showing off your baby bump!
Not only is this maternity boudoir photo shoot for your personal empowerment, these photos can be used for multiple purposes. Create a special baby photo album, frame your favorite photos for your mantle or wall, or even use these photos for baby shower invitations and gender reveals! (I highly recommend using Minted for invitations!)
You’ll love looking back and remembering this time in your journey, when your child was waiting to be welcomed into the world and your family.
