As I mentioned in the previous post, I now know as a mother how I wish I would have booked myself a maternity session when I was pregnant with my daughters! How I wish I would have captured that beauty of being pregnant!!

Here are some of the top reasons why I think you need to book a maternity session ASAP!!!

  1. It doesn’t matter if this is your first or fifth child, this is the only pregnancy that you will have with THIS child! Every pregnancy is different. Capture this moment!
  2. The minute that your beautiful child is born, you will more than likely forget what it felt like to be pregnant!! And while some of you are like, ‘that’s a good thing’, believe me, looking at your child’s eyes as they walk to the school bus for the first time, there will be a little part of you that wishes they were still in your womb so you could start all over again! <3
  3.  Use this as a day to spoil yourself! I always tell my mommies-to-be to pamper themselves before the session! Go and get your hair done, your makeup done! By a new outfit for this occasion! There may be a chance that you are not feeling beautiful because you are pregnant, but you would be surprised how a good facial will change that!!
  4. It is cliche, I know, but yes, pregnant woman glow!! You may not see it, but its my job to capture that with my camera!
  5. It is such a neat opportunity to show your child when they are older pictures of when they were in your tummy (now, if they ask how they got there, that’s on you!! 😉 )
  6. If you have other children, it is so amazing to capture them in the session with you as well! They are about to become big brothers and sisters!
  7. While there is a chance that you may have hated your spouse during your pregnancy for not getting you Burger King EXACTLY when you asked for it (no, just me?!?), there is such a special love and connection that is going on between the two of you, and I love to capture that!
  8. The POSSIBILITIES that we can do with your maternity session!! Have you checked out Pinterest lately?!? Stylized or simple, we can do it all!
  9. You will regret not capturing this special moment, this once in a lifetime bond, between mother and child. Your body was made for this! That bump is beautiful! It truly is, in my opinion, the best part about being a woman!
  10. You will make me OH SO HAPPY!! As I mentioned, I have a special place in my heart for maternity sessions, and I promise you to give you my whole heart in it!!

Drop me a line if you are expecting or if you know someone who could benefit from a session!
