The wedding is over and you are celebrating marital bliss. Life is great. Everything is just perfect peachy pie. And ta da!!! You’re pregnant!
Well, it’s not as straight forward as that, but sometimes it is. So now your life is filled with questions about how things will be different and what you need to do and buy for your little one, or ones if you’re double lucky. My recommendation. Take it slow. There are 9 months to get ready and even when the little one shows up they won’t know that you don’t have everything in perfect order. You need to take time to enjoy those moments with you partner. Keep doing what you do, go for walks, bike rides, movies, but add in one special thing. A maternity photo session, and not just the ultrasound. Your first baby, or even your second is such a special time it’s important to document it as you’ll likely regret not having photos to share with your child of what Mommy looked like when she was pregnant. Maternity sessions can be as simple or complicated as you would like. I recommend simple you’ll want to be able to have the energy to do all that you want to do. These photos should be special moments between you and your partner. I like to take these photos outside around sunset with beautiful natural light. If the baby’s room is set up, I also like to take a few in the nursery and all the tiny little things that your love bump will enjoy, be it story books, socks, or toys.
This shoot was extra special for me as it was Dad to be is my good friend from high school Tim and his beautiful wife Whelena.
So if you’re thinking about getting photos give me a call, email me. Congratulations and much love to you and your family.
