Capture the candy moment with us
Maternity Photography Many women say they feel their best during pregnancy. Others struggle with health and body issues. Whether or not you love how you look, a professional photography session will make you feel beautiful. I have pictures my husband took of me standing sideways against a blank wall in our home to document my growing belly. I wish I’d made an investment in a maternity session.
Take the snap your growing belly in the right time
The ideal time for a maternity shoot is somewhere around the 6th or 7th month of your pregnancy. This is the case because your baby bump is clearly visible around the 8th month of your pregnancy. Having a shoot later than that might be a little uncomfortable for the mother, hence it is advised that the 7th month is the best to get those cute pregnancy photos
You’ve probably heard the phrases “You’re glowing!” or “Pregnancy suits you!” from various people throughout your pregnancy. Between the cankles, the urge to eat everything in sight, and the fact that none of your clothes fit anymore, pregnancy doesn’t always make you feel beautiful.
In fact, most women experience a decline in self-confidence as their pregnancy progresses. Your ever-expanding tummy may seem like the perfect excuse to avoid taking photos for a solid nine months, but it’s just the opposite!
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, YOU’RE GOING TO MISS YOUR BUMP!
From the moment you see those two parallel lines on a pregnancy test, you start dreaming about the day you’ll get to hold your newborn in your arms. At first, it feels like time is inching by, and you find yourself saying things like “I am so tired of being pregnant.”
You’ve probably complained about your aching back, sleepless nights, and frequent heartburn to all your friends and family. “There is no way I’m going to miss this,” you state matter-of-factly while sweating buckets on a relatively cool day.
But as time goes on, you’re going to miss that bump! It won’t be at first, but as the months pass and your baby starts to crawl, you’ll scroll through your monthly pregnancy photos on your phone while absentmindedly rubbing your belly.
The truth is, while pregnancy is hard, there is something simultaneously magical about it. You’re growing a new life, and you’re the only one your child is depending on. You feel their every hiccup, every kick, and every headbutt to your ribs. You’re completely connected.
Once it’s over and done with, you’ll find yourself wandering down nostalgia lane and remembering all those baby kicks (and the ability to eat whatever you wanted guilt-free). So, it’s especially important to capture these moments because you won’t be pregnant forever, and your pregnancy will fly by quicker than you anticipated.
Having maternity photos to look back on will be a standing reminder of that magical time when new life was gestating inside your belly. When you see those beautiful pictures of yourself, you will always smile.
THESE PHOTOS WILL BE TREASURED!
Scheduling a maternity photo session should be on every mommy-to-be’s checklist
As hard as it might be to envision now, time passes quickly. It won’t be long before your child may be showing these pictures to their own child. Your grandchild who might only know you as the gray-haired grandma who is always quick to offer a hug and a cookie will have the opportunity to see you in another light.
That’s a tremendous gift to give your child and the children who come into your family after them. And it’s a great present to yourself and your spouse as well. It’s something the whole family will cherish forever.
