I really wanted to share some thoughts around maternity shoots.
Being a first time mumma-to-be and embracing pregnancy as much as I could, I loved the idea of documenting my transition into motherhood!
It can be a bit uncomfortable watching your body change and grow and knowing that for the most part you don’t have any control! And even though it is a magical experience being able to grow a little human, a changing body, having extra weight, lumps and bumps can be disheartening at times.
So I decided early on I would do the best I could with exercise and nourishing my body and I started to put love into my body and embrace all the good and bad that came with it.
So loving the extra cellulite, the extra weight, the new love handles, the stretchy skin, the extra boobs ( winning) and the extra veins! Just to mention a few.
But as your bump grows, by the time I reached the 2nd and 3rd trimester I can honestly say I loved being pregnant! I felt strong, feminine, beautiful, bold and powerful. I think all pregnant women are so beautiful ( even if you don’t feel it yourself – you are) and I urge you to look at yourself and your growing body with love and fondness, its only such a short time in the scheme of things that were are growing our little humans and then they will be here!
I really loved doing my photo shoot and I felt so comfortable and confident in my own skin. However, a spray tan ( double coat) and getting my hair and makeup done definitely helps! Also choosing the right photographer to bring your vision to light is very important. You will have these photos forever!
So I empower you to document your own journey and get yourself some nice photos done. You don’t even have to share them with anyone, they could just be for you.
