I met with this glowing, beautiful expecting mama a couple of weeks ago. She was hesitant about getting maternity photos done, as a lot of women are. A lot of women that I meet either say they didn't for their first and regret it, or it wasn't something they thought of. I personally feel maternity photos are such a beautiful, simple way to remember the beautiful time in our lives, when we are making a little person inside of our bodies! Some of us didn't have the best pregnancy, I would include myself in that category. No, I wasn't sick all of the time like some women experience, but I have to admit I didn't love being pregnant. I WAS sick most days, but nothing crazy. It was usually because I decided to eat a bag of M&M' right before bed. I also didn't sleep very well, my arms went numb all the time and I felt like a beached whale. BUT, I love that I did get 1 photo of myself that I liked, and I will cherish it forever because my baby girl was all squished up in their <3
If you don't feel beautiful, you are the only one that feels that way. Everyone around you that knows you probably think you look beautiful, because pregnant women are beautiful!!! Here are a few favourites from my Guelph in-home studio.
Please contact me if you are looking to get either in-studio, in-home or outdoor maternity photos. :)
