Maternity Photography – 5 Reasons to Invest in Maternity Photos
It doesn’t matter if this is your first child, or your last, getting professional maternity photos done is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself. Here are my top five reasons why.
Celebrate your pregnancy
Whether you have been struggling with infertility and have been working on your pregnancy for a long time, or if it was a complete and most wonderful surprise, pregnancy is such a magical yet temporary time in your life, so incredibly amazing and wonderful, that it should be celebrated. Most likely in your third trimester you feel great, your skin looks flawless, your hair is shiny and full, and you have that special aura about you that only pregnant mamas have. It’s called the Glow. There is no better time to wear a beautiful maternity gown, get your hair and make up done and enjoy having your photos taken in a beautiful setting.
Reminisce on how you got pregnant
Some couples know the exact date the conception happened, that’s how it was with us, for some couples finding out they were pregnant was a complete surprise, of the most wonderful kind. Use this time during your maternity session to reminisce, think about how you got to this point, what your life used to look like pre-pregnancy. If you have older children, it is so fun to include them in the process of getting your maternity photos done, and also talking to them about becoming a big sister or brother.
Day dream about what it will be like with a new baby
Your life as you know it will never be the same once the baby is here, so use this time to mentally prepare for the baby, daydream about what it will be like, talk through what she will look like (daddy or mommy?), how he will smell and what will her voice sound like. Think about what it will feel like to have the baby curled up on your chest, or what little sounds they will make while nursing. Daydream about your delivery too, that moment after you see your baby for the first time, what it will feel like, to see their eyes for the first time. Your maternity session is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your partner too.
Relax and have fun
Maternity sessions should be fun, and I make it my priority to make sure that you feel the most beautiful, celebrated and connected to your partner. That’s why we will shoot in one of the most amazing locations in North Atlanta. After my sessions many couples tell me that they’ve had the best time, and I really want you to relax and enjoy it. I guide you through fun, emotional and connected poses to get the most authentic and meaningful images. You can completely relax and enjoy the process without overthinking anything.
Create memories for your child
Final and one of the most important reasons for any kind of photography, especially maternity photography, is creating memories for your family and, in this case, for your future child. Some of my favorite photographs of my mom are the ones where she is carrying me in her belly, there’s nothing like that feeling of being there without yet been present there. Let your child have those memories, and look at how beautiful, happy and glowing their mama was while carrying them. Alongside a lifestyle newborn session, these are some of the most important memories you will ever preserve for your child.
