There are so many factors that go into creating a perfect maternity session. Many clients want to have gorgeous images to remember this incredible time but the whole process may seem intimidating. While pregnancy is quite beautiful it also comes along with some unspoken downsides from bloat, fatigue, blotchy skin, weight gain (other than the belly area), swollen ankles, facial changes, cellulite and stretch marks to name a few! That may be enough for a mama to be to steer clear of any camera! Years ago, women of a certain status would be painted by great artists. You never saw the any of the flaws, only the beauty. And there is SO MUCH BEAUTY in all of you ladies! What you need is a trusted photographer to take plenty of time to strategically pose you, style you and most importantly..LIGHT you so those unimportant "flaws" that we get hung up on are lost, and the only thing the camera sees is YOU. Perfect and pregnant YOU!
At the end of the day, whatever our physical flaws are, (and we all have them) are so not important. We are here to remember and preserve a very special time. Not just for yourself, but for that child that will one day grow up and cherish this memory of mommy while they were still safe inside her. You are so much larger than any imperfection. You are a giver of life.
So that brings us back to the details. Finding the right photographer, means you have chosen someone that will take the time to make sure that you are seen in the most flattering light. After all, when your child looks at you with such unconditional love, they are seeing the most beautiful woman in the world...as your photographer, so am I.
