I had so much fun photographing this sweet family in Seattle. This sweet mama contacted me one month before she’s due and she told me that she’s a bit worried that she would still be too swollen for our photoshoot. Believe me, I totally get it. I had the exact same thoughts when I was pregnant and I was very self conscious after birth to the point that I did not even want to be in the photos with my baby. Now my girls are not babies any more, sometimes they would ask me where I was when looking at their baby photos, and I couldn’t even find a photo of me with them when they were newborns. To this day I regret this.
To the mamas out there who have the same insecurities, I hear you. Please know that our body is amazing and it grew a life for 9 months and had just brought a new life in to the world. It’s done us amazing things and your body should be celebrated. Plus, isn’t she gorgeous? In my eyes she has something to worry about!
I would also be there every step of the way to help you and show you that you are beautiful.
