7 reasons why you should have a maternity photo session
A maternity photo session allows you to focus on the new life your body is working so hard to create and can remind you of the excitement and joy that comes with bringing your child into the world.
You’re counting 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.
DOCUMENT YOUR JOURNEY TO PARENTHOOD
Your body changes in a unique way during your pregnancy! Every pregnancy is absolutely different and you will never be pregnant with this particular child ever again, isn’t it a reason to document the new life your body is working so hard to create?
Your journey to parenthood could have been an easy one, an unexpected one or a long winded through tons of doctors appointments and tears of joy! Every journey is special and your maternity photo session will tell your original parenthood story through timeless images, that story you will then be able to retell to your children, so they feel connected and included into your family journey.
CAPTURE THE JOY AND ANTICIPATION
Pregnancy is always a time of looking towards the future. What will your baby look like? Will the baby sleep well? Is she going to have your smile or your partner’s? What the future holds for your baby?
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 photo session can serve as a reminder of those feelings in the years to come. you go through the album and the nostalgia fills you up with a warm fuzzy felling.
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.
TAKE TIME TO PAMPER YOURSELF
As the life gets busier, when you need to rush to finish off all your things at work before starting your maternity and create a beautiful bedroom for the baby, and not to forget to buy all the items for the baby, wash and clean everything, no wonder you can get out of puff.
Your maternity photo session can be a perfect opportunity to spoil yourself, to put a makeup on, have your hair and nails done and feel like a princess during your pregnancy photo session. You can wear a beautiful gown put on for your photos or keep it casual – either way you will walk away feeling gorgeous and be able to stop and enjoy being a new mum and remind yourself how gorgeous and stunning your really are!
MARK THIS MOMENT AS YOUR FAMILY GROWS
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 fourth, your pregnancy is unique and is a great reason to get some family photos done, with all of your older children and your partner at their best behaviour!
And the best thing your partner won’t be able to say no to the maternity photo session to the mother of his new child! And then after the session, you can enjoy portraits of your growing family on the wall watching your children growing up — something your future self and your children will definitely be thankful for.
REVEAL THE GENDER OR NAME OF YOUR NEW BABY
A professional maternity photo session can be a fun way to announce either the gender or the name of your child—or even both! There are so many fun and creative ways to make these announcements to the world with photos and short videos, and your photographer would be more than happy to help with your ideas come to life! Scroll through Pinterest or Instagram for ideas or think about the interests or hobbies you and your partner share as inspiration for telling the world your news.
TIMETO BOND WITH YOUR PARTNER
One of the best things about maternity photo session is the interactions between couples as they celebrate the new life they’ve created. Your maternity photoshoot 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. during the maternity session new fathers are usually extra gentle and loving towards their partners, what a great way of feeling loved!
DECORATE YOUR WALLS WITH PHOTOS OF EVERY STAGE OF YOUR LIFE
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.
