Maternity sessions are pretty special for lots of reasons. But the biggest for me is just the beauty of it all. The beauty of the moment. The beauty of what a woman’s body does. All of it. I felt so gross and miserable when I was pregnant. And the ability to marvel at what my body was doing was lost due to wanting to throw up twenty-four hours a day. LOL But now that I am beyond that I really wish I had taken the time to document so an important event and time in my life. When mamas come to me I want to do everything in my power to give them something to look back on and love.
Booking a Progression
Usually when mamas come to me they are more than half way through their pregnancy. And while that is great it makes a progression a bit more challenging. This mama came to me while she was in her second trimester. Not showing too much but definitely enough to see that she is pregnant. It would make for a great progression with a session in the second and third trimester and again once baby comes. If you really want a great progression contact me as soon as you find out your pregnant so we can grab that first trimester too. 🙂
The maternity portions are always the easiest. You feel tired but ok. We pick out gorgeous gowns that will go well through each stage of pregnancy and even after baby comes. The sessions leading up to the third trimester session are usually more of a mini session with a full session at the end. The newborn session is where it all comes together. But getting all dressed up a week after baby comes isn’t always the most fun. It makes it all worth it though, I promise.
My mama-to-be showed up to every session looking gorgeous and wonderful. I wish I looked that good while pregnant and even after. I loved being able to create this lasting memory for her and I could not be happier with how the images turned out. Check out her beautiful session. The rest of her newborn session will come so stay tuned!

Such a neat idea for a pregnancy photo session. My kids have just marveled at my growing belly this time around. It really is miraculous how quickly mothers expand to grow life. If we were in Seattle, we’d choose you for a maternity session. These are lovely photos.
