Maternity Photos “Just Not Your Thing”?

When I was expecting my first child five years ago I actually felt the same way. It wasn’t until after I had my son that I realized I had missed an opportunity to capture a really special time.

Not to get all sappy here, but it’s really pretty impressive how our bodies transform to bring another human into this world. It’s kind of a beautiful thing.

(Note: that beautiful transformation is also responsible for my current hatred of swimwear… But that’s another story altogether).

Not all maternity photos need to be a) cheesy; b) show skin; or c) displayed on your living room wall for all to see. They can be tailored to you and your partner’s unique style.

Time to think differently about maternity photos?

  1. There are great shots! I wasn’t a big maternity photo shoot lady myself. It was kind of uncomfortable being photographed for maybe 2 or 3 hours – not at my home while huge and prego. I think the photographer took about 700 pictures and ended up with 1 that I liked, but I really really liked it so it was worth it!!
