I have been loving some of the maternity sessions that have been going on inside my home studio recently. I’m so glad that the women I’ve been photographing are choosing to document this moment in their lives, because all too soon those little kicks and jabs (and then bigger kicks, rolls, hiccups, and everything else that go with pregnancy) will be gone all too fast. I even look back and think that it’s been almost 8 months for myself since I last experienced it. I know how hard it is to cherish those moments though, because I remember the endless heartburn, the cramps, and the shooting pains that came from no where…yet, pregnancy is SUCH a beautiful thing, and one day that child that you’re carrying will want to be able to see how much of a rockstar their momma was during that pregnancy, and how her body was like a warrior carrying them.
The most recent maternity session was done last week, and completely blew me away. I was even happier to find out that they were also thrilled with the images. So, without any further words, here are some of my favorites from that session in my Toledo, OH home studio.
