You are marking down the days until your little one arrives! Depending on how you feel at this stage of your pregnancy, you may be unsure about whether you want to invest time and money into professional maternity photos. 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
We have heard many stories of not wanting to take pictures of this special time in your life. Pregnancy may not be a phase of your life you enjoy, especially in the last few months. As your body grows, 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, however, we encourage moms to remember just how miraculous and incredible pregnancy really is. A maternity photo session allows you to focus on the new life your body is creating and capture the excitement and joy that comes with bringing your child into the world.
Capture the joy and anticipation
Our mind is very powerful so we believe that pregnancy is a time of looking hopefully and delightfully toward the future. In the months and years to come, as you focus on raising your new child, you may forget what it felt like to be eagerly awaiting their arrival. Maternity photos can serve as a reminder of those feelings in the years to come. After all, most women only experience pregnancy a few times in their lives, and chances are you won’t regret having a memento of that special time.
Mark this moment in your family’s growth
I’m a firm believer 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 fifth, your pregnancy is a great time to get some family photos with not just you and your partner, but your other children as well. If you take time to do photo sessions on a regular basis, you can chart the growth of your family over the years—something your future self and your children will definitely be thankful for.
Reveal the sex or name of your child
A professional maternity session can be a fun way to announce either the sex or the name of your child—or even both! There are so many fun and creative ways to announce your little one’s name or sex to the world with photos, and as your photographer I would be more than happy to help you make that announcement. Get inspiration from Pinterest or other photo sources to create your own reveal.
A great excuse to get all dolled up
This is a great time to get out of expanding comfy pajamas. Maternity photos are the perfect excuse to go all out do your hair and make up, 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 at least just for this memory you will be able to tell the story to your baby. A maternity session allows you to create a keepsake to remind yourself of how absolutely stunning you are.
Don't forget to bond with your partner
One of the coolest things about maternity sessions is 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 connect with your spouse at a time when most of the attention is probably focused on you and your baby.
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 your home—that’s huge! It’s definitely a moment that deserves professional photography, just like your wedding day.
