For many, the moment she announces her pregnancy, all thoughts focus on the birth of her new baby. Even well-intentioned friends and relatives tend to discuss only the details of the upcoming birth. When is the due date? What’s the baby’s gender? Will the birth be natural? C-Section? Will it take place at home? In the hospital? Who will be there? Not only can all these questions and concerns feel overwhelming, it also completely overshadows what should be a reflective and meaningful experience. It also ignores her beautiful transformation and temporary new curves. A maternity photo session — and in particular, a maternity boudoir session — is a celebration of all that she is. Beautiful. Nurturing. Sexy.
A maternity boudoir session helps to separate women from their “duty of birth” and revere them for who they are and who they are becoming. Even husbands and mothers-to-be themselves may not automatically recognize their inherent beauty. These images are meant to be treasured for a lifetime. A reminder of just how lovely she is.
This spring maternity boudoir session was shot on a combination of digital and film (an approach known as hybrid shooting). Her beautiful maternity lingerie, which so delicately wraps around her, was hand made by Canadian seamstresses at Ohhh LuLu.
There is nothing more empowering than the knowledge that a new life passed through you to get into this world.
