5 Reasons Why You Should Take Maternity Photos

You’re counting down the days until your little one arrives! It’s such an exciting time and you’re also beginning to think about if you should take the step of investing in maternity photos. Depending on how you’re feeling at this particular stage of your pregnancy, you may be feeling apprehensive. Maybe you’re self-conscious about the way your body looks or maybe you’re just not sure about the cost of a photo session. While it’s most important to make a decision that’s right for you and your personal needs, there are many reasons why maternity photos are definitely worth the investment and are a choice you won’t regret.

Celebrate Your Pregnancy Journey

Pregnancy may not be a phase of your life you enjoy, especially in the last few months. As your body grows larger, you may not want any photos of yourself taken and wouldn’t want to share images with friends and family. It can be a challenge watching your body change so much, and it can also be easy to forget just how miraculous and incredible pregnancy really is. A maternity photo session allows you to focus on the new life your body is working so hard to create. Instead of focusing on the way you look, remind yourself of the excitement and joy that comes with bringing your child into the world.

Have An Excuse to Get All Dressed Up

Let’s face it: during pregnancy, most of us don’t feel our most beautiful. You may spend a lot of time wearing whatever is most comfortable and a lot less time on your hair and makeup. But maternity photos are the perfect excuse to go all out on your beauty routine, whether that means doing your hair yourself or stopping into a salon to get the perfect hairdo. Pregnancy is a time in many women’s lives when they really need to feel beautiful because they so often don’t. A maternity session allows you to revel in your beauty and strength and to remind yourself of how absolutely stunning you are.

Mark This Moment in Your Family’s Growth

Obviously as a photographer, I believe that you can never have too many photos of your family. So much of life passes by in a blur, and we often forget more than we remember. Whether this is your first child or your fourth, your pregnancy is a great time to get some family photos with not just you and your partner, but your other children as well. These are photos that you will always have and believe it or not, your kids will love seeing these photos for years to come.

Take Time to Bond With Your Partner

I love maternity sessions and capturing the interactions between couples as they celebrate the new life they’ve created. Your maternity photo shoot gives you and your partner a chance to reflect on the life you’ve built together and how much has changed in your relationship since the beginning. Plus, maternity images are a great way to mark a major shift in the life of your family and in who you both are as you transition to parenthood.

Get Images Worth Displaying

A lot of people have their wedding photos hanging on the walls of their home, but imagine having images on your walls from every stage in your family’s growth—from marriage to your first child all the way down to when you become grandparents. Maternity photos capture a moment in time that’s just as important as your wedding day. You’re welcoming a new child into your lives and so…it’s kind of a big deal! It’s definitely a moment that deserves professional photography, just like your wedding day.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and website. I would love the opportunity to work with you and your family during this exciting time. Please email me with your questions or to book a session at Maternity sessions to book out in advance and the best time to capture your pregnancy is between the 28-35 week mark.
