Like a lot of photographers (and mothers in general), I am WAY more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, but since this baby could come any day now, I knew I would regret if I didn’t take some maternity photos in my new photography studio. And even though taking and sharing these photos pushes me outside of my comfort zone, I know I will never regret the photos I do take of me with my babies…not just for me, but for them as well. I want them to be able to look back at their life story and know how loved and cherished they were from the very beginning. Even if you don’t “feel” like being photographed, do it anyway…I guarantee that years from now, you and your children will be so thankful you did. And as a side note, hiring a photographer who specializes in maternity and really knows how to pose and shoot from flattering angles is worth it’s weight in gold because I can attest from this that blindly attempting to pose yourself is quite challenging. As a photographer, I love being able to make my maternity clients look and feel as beautiful as they are. So mamas, set aside any personal hesitations you might have and capture this fleeting time…you and your children deserve their story to be remembered in photographs.
