It’s not often that women want to feel big and beautiful, and sometimes it takes some convincing to get an expectant mama to see her beauty during those final months of pregnancy. In the Summer, it can get even worse because of it being so hot…but then, every once in a while, I get a mama who comes in and just knows her true beauty in that moment. I’m excited to capture all women during their pregnancies, but I absolutely love it when there is that confidence in that moment. It makes my job just a tiny bit easier. That brings me to the mama from my most recent bump session. She had been looking for a photographer and was actually referred to me by my amazing cousin (thank you Susan!). So, we got the expectant parents on my schedule and waited for the date to get here. Soon enough, it was time, and let me tell you, these parents are so ready to meet their little man. I love seeing the joy on the faces of expectant parents. Nothing can touch that excitement and anticipation. In a few weeks, they’ll get to meet him, love on him, and snuggle him for the very first time. I’m so excited for you both!
I mean, just look at them! Absolutely beautiful.
Maybe you’ve been apprehensive about your bump. Maybe you don’t see the point. The fact is this moment is only going to happen a few times in your life. One day you’ll look back and want to see these moments again. One day that sweet new baby is going to ask how they got here, and these moments are important for them. Remember this. Cherish this. It’s such a short time. I promise you’ll feel beautiful when you see your images.
