Minneapolis Maternity Photographer
The maternity session. Not a session that every expecting mommy can see herself doing. I think my maternity clients are pretty brave. I admire their ability to step in front of a camera with confidence when many would feel anything but photogenic. I sure wouldn’t have felt comfortable having photos taken of me when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was a walking water balloon. I gained so much water weight when I was pregnant with her, I mean it was just ridiculous. I had that super creepy pitting edema in my feet. Cute was the last thing I felt.
With my son, I still gained weight of course, but I felt more comfortable. I’m lucky to have a great friend who did my maternity photos for me. I love, cherish, adore them. It made me realize… while I may not have felt super confident in my first pregnancy, I wish I had taken maternity photos. What I looked like didn’t matter. Why I love capturing maternity photos for clients, and why I should have had them done for me, is to capture all the emotions during this brief time in life. The anticipation, anxiety, and excitement of a new beginning. You’ve never met your baby, have yet to see their precious smile, yet you love them unconditionally. Just imagine for a moment, 10, 15, 20+ years from now showing your child these photos. How crazy special will that be?! My oldest, Azria, has already started asking for me to tell stories of when she was in my belly. I have a few photos to share with her, and my gosh does it make her so happy. That’s what it’s all about. If you’re thinking about having maternity photos done for yourself, just do it. I promise, you won’t regret it.
