WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE MATERNITY PHOTOS | ROCHESTER MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

Woman are truly goddesses and growing and caring a new life is one of life's greatest miracles.  It doesn't matter if this is your first baby or fourth, I promise it is worth documenting.  I'm sharing my top reasons why you should document this beautiful time, as well as a recent maternity session below!  And you won't to miss this month's blog feature at the end either!

EASY TO FORGET

Nine months seem so long while you are in them, especially with all the aches and pains, but as soon as that little babe is born and snuggled into your loving arms, it is easy to forget what it felt like to be pregnant.  The little flutters and kicks fade, and you can hardly believe you couldn't tie your shoe just a short time before.  It's hard getting your own photos during pregnancy, (other than the quick i-phone snap;) these photos will give you lasting memories of this special time in your life.

MEMORIES FOR EVERYONE

Not only will you be able to look at these images and feel what it was like to be pregnant, but your children will too. Your baby will someday want to see what you looked like pregnant with them, and you will have these images to show them how much they were already loved and how glowing and excited you were to meet them!

SOAK UP THIS TIME

If this is your first baby, then it is the perfect time to spend some quality time with your partner before your family grows and your days are filled with beautiful chaos and wakeful nights.  If there are older siblings, then it is a chance to spend quality one-on-one time with them before they are competing for your attention;)

PAMPER YOURSELF

As moms it is so easy to put others first, getting the baby all the new clothes, or siblings presents so they don't feel left out either.  A maternity session will give you a chance to get a new, comfortable dress to feel beautiful in!  You can even get your hair done and feel like the goddess you truly are.

YOU WON'T REGRET IT

Time passes so quickly, even more so once you have little ones.  Maybe you've been too busy to schedule a session and are 2 weeks away from your due date.  Don't worry, it's still not too late to capture your glowing beauty, even if you feel like the size of a watermelon.   But it will be too late once baby is here.  You won't get this time back, so soak it up while you can, and capture it so you can always remember how strong, how beautiful and how precious this time in motherhood will always be.

I have a special place in my heart for mamas to be and would be honored to capture this time for you.  I'd love to hear from you if you're expecting or know a mama who could benefit from a maternity session. 

This month I have the honor of featuring Dana DiSalvo, a Tampa Beach Photographer and a gorgeous beach session you won't want to miss!

Warmly,

PERSONAL PROJECT | GETTING IN THE FRAME

PERSONAL PROJECT | GETTING IN THE FRAME

At the beginning of 2017, I began a personal photography project, "Project 52 Radness" with other amazing woman to get in the frame, alone, with our littles, our husbands, to really show that we were there too. One of my images was even featured on their Dear Photographer Blog! It was perfect timing to make sure I was capturing my growing belly, and  it also became a special time for my daughter and I, as she loved setting up the tripod and clicking the remote.

Then as my second babe arrived in April, it captured our growing family and little moments with him that I never want to forget. As I complied all the images form over the year, although some months getting in the frame happened more than others,  I am so incredibly thankful for them all.  If I hadn't made a commitment to myself, I might have never taken these images and not have these special memories of me and my family.  As a photographer, it is so easy to stay on the other side of the camera, but for our family, for my children, it is so important to me that they have memories of me with them, to show them how much they were loved as children, and how much joy they bring me. 

I hope you enjoy this little collection as much as I do <3

AND stay tuned at the end of the post to see not one, but two special artists from blog circles I'm part of this month!  As part of our blog circle, we link to each other's posts so you can see what they're up to and see some amazing talent being featured!
