Even though pregnancy comes with lots of difficult trials, it is such an amazing time in your life. It is a time of celebration and anticipation as you prepare to meet your little bundle of joy. It is 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. We love Maternity Photography here at J'Adore Photography and we would love to capture all these special memories for you... Here is our top 5 reasons why you should get some professional Maternity Photographs.
You are BEAUTIFUL - There are very few women who feel like they are beautiful while they are pregnant - especially during their first pregnancy. However, the miracle of pregnancy is such a beautiful thing. I know you may not be feeling your best with swollen feet, stretch marks, sickness and hormone changes aside - but please remember from the outside we don't see all these things - Instead, we see a gorgeous woman bringing a new life (or 2) into the world with a beautiful little baby growing inside her.
There is no need to worry about your BELLY - Us ladies are never happy with our bodies, constantly on a diet, hitting the gym or following the next fitness craze.. However, during your pregnancy its time to embrace your body - a pregnant bump does a good job of hiding all they woobly bits so maybe its the first time in a while you will feel confident getting your tummy out.
A chance to bond with your PARTNER - It can be hard for Daddies-to-be to bond with an unborn baby, the baby isn't growing inside of them, moving around, getting hiccups or kicking them in the ribs... We all know how special it is when you feel your baby move for the first time, but for daddy it can be harder to imagine how wonderful that feels. By including them in your Maternity Photography Session it can help them bond with the baby.. It also gives them their own special memories and images to treasure forever.
Its fun and bonding for SIBLINGS too - If you have children already they will feel very special by being included in the Maternity session, hugging and kissing your bump and showing their love and bond with their new baby brother or sister. By being included in the session it helps them to feel important and creates some nice memories for them both. For some children a new baby arriving may be a worrying time with the change in the dynamics of the family, they may feel apprehensive about what will happen. During the maternity session it allows them to start imagining what it will be like when the baby has arrived. Most likely I will also be your Newborn photographer so with them being involved in the maternity session this allows them to build a bond with me which will also result in more relaxed newborn/ sibling images.
Once its gone its GONE - There are only a few months in your life (per baby) that you will have the most glorious noticeable baby bump.. Sadly the bump takes months to show because before this people could mistake you for just putting on a few pounds. However, before you know it the birth will be done and your baby will be growing bigger every day and all the moments of your pregnancy will be a distant memory... You don't get this time back so let us capture these special memories for you to treasure forever.
We love meeting all the lovely Mums-to-Be when they come in for their Maternity - Bump Photography Sessions. Its lovely to capture all these moments and then meet the lovely newborns when they later come back for a newborn session.
