Like seriously, you’re growing a human. It’s kind of a big deal….
I want 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 it you have to love it.
A lot of women have hesitations about being captured while pregnant. When their body isn’t at all in the state it is usually in. And many have a TON of hesitations about being the center of attention during a photo shoot during such a time.
But here are three reasons, as a mama AND as a photographer, that I think it’s important to capture this chapter in your lives.
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 child. You NEED photos of your body when it is doing such a sacred job.
Whether this is your fist baby, you have a fur baby, or this is your 6th, 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 should be captured.
Though it seems like these pregnant days can last foreverrrrrrrrrr, years from now, you may forget those sweet little kicks and how you carried your little munchkin. Even if you don’t love being pregnant, you will want to remember what it felt like and photos will help take you back.
