Maternity portraits are some of my favorite to photograph. It is an exciting time for each expectant family–so many emotions are there as the family awaits arrival of their +1 (or 2 oe 3). During a maternity photo session, I try to capture and convey these emotions in my photographs. During our maternity photo session, I will often ask an expectant mama to hug their belly and think about meeting and snuggling their little one for the first time, capturing the joy and happiness this thought radiates. During maternity photo sessions, the dads are also brimming with excitement, tenderness and strength. And the older siblings are often eager to kiss mom’s belly, give snuggles, and talk to their brother or sister. All happy, beautiful moments…now forever captured, documented and remembered.
