waiting for baby | atlanta maternity photography
It is such an honor and compliment to be hired more than once by a family to document their journey. When I met this family they were waiting for their first baby, Cameron, over two years ago. We have had many fun photo sessions since then, including a newborn session, the 365 project and Cameron's first and second birthdays. And now it won't be long until we will welcome their second baby!
Maternity sessions are best scheduled for between the 35th-37th week of your pregnancy. Maternity sessions can be in your home or at an outdoor location. This session was fun because it included pieces of Atlanta.
My maternity sessions are lifestyle sessions, in that the focus is on the connections and emotions of pregnancy. A pregnant belly is gorgeous, and the anticipation of adding another member to the family is precious. There is something so beautiful, and magical, about a woman who is carrying a child in her womb. I hope to capture that beauty, and all of the emotions around pregnancy, in a natural setting. Whether in your home or at on a sidewalk, I love the authentic moments that happen when you are being yourself, and connecting with people you love.
Maternity photography is about a "before"...before a family gets to meet and hold their baby, before a woman becomes a mother and a father becomes a father, sometimes before a child becomes a big brother or sister. This session shows a moment in time before this family went from three to four. Very soon this family will be dramatically different, never the same. Their new baby will join their beautiful, chaotic life, and I will get to document that too!
