I am long overdue with this post. In fact It's quite likely that this beautiful Mama has had her baby by now. I really enjoyed spending time with this family and photographing this special moment in their lives. I think this Mom was a bit hesitant to get some Maternity photos as I find most moms are but I'm so glad that she did. She was gorgeous and glowing! I am constantly amazed at the Miracles our bodies can do! It is such a beautiful thing that we can create and grow life inside of us and I think it's super important to document that time. As I'm sure you know if you read my previous posts, I had my first son 10 weeks early so I did not get the chance to get this far along in my pregnancy the first time. Because of that, the 2nd time around I think I overcompensated and took a billion Maternity self portraits! It's really caused me to have a much greater appreciation for Maternity Photography.
I decided to show only the Black and White photos for this post. To me they feel more intimate and invoke a mood of quiet anticipation. Also, this little boy had the most stunning light blue eyes which I thought would look best in color but were actually super striking in black and white also.
