Today, I want to talk about why you should have maternity photographs made. Although I have yet to enter the stage of life we're going to be talking about today, I know from watching friends and family that it is a very busy season of life! I know there is lots of planning and preparation that goes into having a baby, and that your list of to-dos is long. I know that as a photographer I am biased, but I totally think you should add maternity photos to that list. Here's why:
1. You Get to Celebrate Your Pregnancy!
I hear several women say they feel the best they've ever felt during pregnancy. On the other hand, I have heard others say the complete opposite. Either way, a maternity session will make you feel gorgeous. It's a wonderful opportunity to get all dolled up before baby arrives!
2. You Get To Freeze a Moment In Time
When your bundle of joy arrives, your life is going to change ALOT! Having maternity photographs made gives you the chance to capture life just as it is in this moment! Not to mention, this journey of pregnancy helps you to reflect on how and why you two became a family in the first place.
3. You Get To Capture the Anticipation on Camera
One reason I love maternity sessions is because the anticipation of becoming parents is so evident in your photos! You're about to embark on an exciting new journey, which is so exciting! It's even better when you can have those emotions captured forever!
4. You Get to Involve Siblings
If you already have children, I'm sure they're just as excited about your family's new addition as you are! Having a maternity session gives you the opportunity to capture their excitement as well! It gives them to the opportunity to interact with the baby!
5. You Can Use the Photos for a Big Reveal
One thing that is SUPER FUN about maternity sessions is that you can use them as opportunities to have a reveal- whether you're choosing to reveal the babies gender or name! Revealing something about your little one through photographs always makes for a wonderful story!
