A maternity photography session is one of the best times to document in life. It’s such an amazing time in a mama’s life where you are literally growing another human. Moms truly are superheroes! Most of the moms I photograph also have other children and somehow do it all so beautifully. I know most of the focus goes into preparing for baby and getting through those 9 months with some sort of sleep and patience. But it’s also so important to document this time. I’ve had two babies myself, so I can relate to the difficulty of planning all the things. Maternity photos are not just one more thing on the to-do list. The chance to get them taken is so short in life. Don’t look back and regret not getting them done! If you’re looking for a maternity photographer in Appleton, WI you’re in the right place.
I know it doesn’t always feel like a beautiful time in life, but it really is incredible what our bodies go through in such a short amount of time. One of my biggest regrets is not getting photos done with my growing family. Although it certainly feels like that 9 month of pregnancy last forever, it really does go by fast when you think back to it. I really miss feeling my daughter’s kicks in my belly. It was such a special time that only she and I shared. The worst part is I can’t go back and get photos done. We’re not planning on having any more kids and while I have cell phone pictures, it’s not the same.
I was so focused on baby coming and getting newborn photos done that I forgot to capture what my body went through. It’s still hard to believe how much your body changes in just 9 months. It’s just amazing that our bodies know what to do.
If you are looking for a maternity photographer in Appleton, WI and the Fox Cities, here’s a little more information on sessions. Maternity photos are usually taken between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy before you’re too uncomfortable but are clearly showing. Sessions are done either in-home or outdoors. I always recommend mamas to wear dresses that show off your bump. One of my favorite shops for dresses is Baltic Born. During your pre-session consult call, we’ll talk about what to wear, location, and you’ll get to use my online styling tool to help coordinate outfits for the whole family.
Take it from a mama with two littles, you will never regret getting maternity photos taken! It’s such an amazing time to remember in life and really does go fast in hindsight.
