A maternity session for your first born is always special indeed. There is a great deal of excitement, love, and anxiety all rolled up into one during this time. I had such a lovely time with this amazing young couple and look forward to helping them document the coming year with their first born. These two fine people are going to be amazing parents, their sweet baby has no idea just how lucky he is.
he snow fell and blanketed the ground as we began this lovely maternity session inside the warmth of their home. Though chilly and windy outside we knew that we had to take advantage of the beautiful scene the snow had created for us. It was certainly worth a few chilly fingers on my part and Mom did just fine!
I think there is a lot to be said for a maternity portrait session done in the comfort of your own home. It's comfortable, there is always a bathroom available, and it's an accurate reflection of many of your days were spent during your pregnancy.
It's funny that as women we look at other women during their pregnancy and see only beauty. At times that the beauty can be lost on ourselves as we go through our own pregnancy. We are growing and changing and often find it harder each day to see the beauty that others see. I challenge you to see only the beauty, because trust me this is a beautiful time in your life. Celebrate it and document it for someday it will be a very distant memory.
