7 Reasons Why You Should Have a Maternity Session
7 Reasons why you should have a maternity session
Growing a little human inside of you in a miracle! So many people wish and pray for a baby; you may be one of those people! This something to celebrate and commemorate so that they memories last a lifetime.
While pregnant with her first child, Jackie, felt horrible from the day after conception until 16 weeks. Terrible nausea and tiredness. But, knowing that this was a normal feeling during a healthy pregnancy made her feel better. During her second pregnancy, she felt great! Didn’t have any symptoms except for tiredness towards the end of her pregnancy. That could also be attributed to running after an almost 2 year old constantly.
With both her pregnancies, she did maternity photos and doesn’t regret having them done at all. You will never find a person who regrets having photos taken but regrets NOT having photos taken.
Here are 7 reasons why you should have a maternity session.
The minute your baby is born, you will forget what it is like to be pregnant. As much as we want to watch them grow and flourish, there is always that voice inside of us that just wants to feel the kicks in our belly again. You will have the opportunity to go back and relive it all in photos.
While there may be some times that you despise your partner because they snore at night or didn’t run to the store when you told them about a craving but, this is the time to capture the love between each other before the bouncing bundle comes.
Show your baby what it was like with them in your belly. Within a few years of giving birth, the inevitable conversation of “Mommy where do babies come from”?” will come. Take this time to show your child the album of when they were in your belly and show how happy and beautiful you looked. Now, teaching the birds and the bees is up to you 😉
Use this time to spoil yourself! Take the day off, get a manicure, pedicure, hair and make-up and then having a date night after!
We can get creative! Do some research on pinterest to see what you link. Do you want a milk bath? Do you want a garden? Do you have to be nude? Do you want to be on the beach?
Capture the anticipation. We always get candid moments and have many tricks up our sleeve to get the natural smiles and laughter. If siblings are involved, we love to have them hold and kiss your belly!
Once it’s gone, it’s gone. This time only happens for 10 months. You will never have this time with this baby ever again. Like we said above, you will not regret having photos done but, you will regret NOT having taking photos.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate and capture this once in a lifetime moment for you. It does not have to be super serious and “posey.” We love to have fun and get those genuine smiles and laughs as well.
