The Importance of Maternity Photos

Hi blog readers!  

Today I want to discuss why doing a maternity session is an important way to document a mommy-to-be's journey into motherhood. Although pregnancy comes with a lot of difficult trials, it is an amazing time in your life as it's a time of celebration, and of anticipation to as you prepare to meet your little bundle of joy. It’s a time where you become strong – stronger than you ever thought you could possibly be. During this time, you create your initial bond with your child that will continue throughout your entire lives.

There are very few women who actually feel like they are beautiful while they are pregnant – especially during the first pregnancy. However, the miracle of pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Swollen feet, stretch marks, and hormone changes aside – you are growing a real human being inside of you. All of those side effects come from different things your body has to do to help nourish and protect your baby.

You are beautiful, and you should take the time to celebrate these changes and this amazing moment in your life. These photos will be a great gift to pass down to your child as an heirloom of your first memories with them. This is something they can treasure forever.

I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful mamas pictured below at downtown Phoenix and am in love with the results!! These ladies embody everything motherhood is about, and rocked the photo session – aren’t they gorgeous?
