Expectation. It’s the feeling that can make your heart race, suspend time and bring a tear to your eye – all in one breath. For 9 months I encountered it in a life transforming way; and I felt more feminine than ever before. I was carrying life inside me and my body became something more beautiful than I could have imagined. Sure – my skin was blotchy, my belly huge, the veins on my arms were always visible, and my back ached – but I glowed from the inside out. I will forever cherish that time. This morning I spent a few moments looking through my maternity portraits (thanks hubby for taking them) and thought I would share some photos with you.
I love photographing pregnant women and helping them see how amazing they look. I think that seeing yourself through the lens, and truly observing your new body in all its radiance, is just plain good for the soul. So if you are a woman who has, is, or will be expecting I hope these images will inspire you to shake off your insecurities and embrace your body for all it is – A beautiful miracle capable of nurturing and sustaining life.
This was me, just 6 short months ago – wrinkles and all. I’m kind of in awe right now. Thanks God for the experience!
I have a couple maternity portrait sessions coming up and simply cannot wait to make these women feel pretty and captivating like I did. To learn more about my maternity portrait services visit http://www.kelownaphotographer.ca/ or send me an email.
Have a wonderful day,
