Ok… so you’re pregnant feeling radiant, with glowing cheeks and a smile on your face. Well – lets be honest, some of us feel that way for some of the pregnancy or pregnancies. EVERY pregnant woman does have a beautiful glow and the state of pregnancy is such an amazing thing as it is. Maternity portraits are a great way to document that amazing time in your life and remember what a beautiful journey it really was for you and your family.
I tell people this all the time, and when you are pregnant – it is likely that you hear it from more than one of your friends, family – and even strangers. Your new baby is born and before you blink your eyes they get big. I’m not just talking about the difference between tiny bundle to crawling and walking either. I couldn’t be more serious when I say they only look like a “newborn” for a couple weeks in most cases. Don’t put off those amazing first couple weeks when your newborn is still in a slight state of slumber is the best time to get those curled up, sleepy time newborn images that make you say “Awhhhh”. They make amazing birth announcements and a perfect way to start your child’s memories. My children still point to photos of when they were newborns with pride and always ask for us to tell them stories of when they were babies – and my boys are only 3 and 4 years old right now. It means the world to them as much as it does you.
