Why Maternity Sessions Are Incredibly Special From A Maternity Photographer

Maternity sessions are so incredibly special and absolutely worth it in my opinion. Not just because I’m a family and maternity photographer, but because every pregnancy journey deserves to be documented! This specific maternity session holds a special place in my heart because I was able to photograph my nephew Adam and his girlfriend Ali’s maternity photos in Reno, Nevada. Adam and I grew up together, so it was so amazing to be able to capture this next chapter in his life and Ali’s life and give them the gift of photos that they will cherish for a lifetime. I can’t wait to meet their baby!

Why Maternity Photos Are Worth It!

Maternity sessions are incredibly important because they will capture the special moment in your life before the baby comes! You spend nine months growing a tiny human inside of you. Documenting that beautiful journey is worth taking the time to book a session and capture the moment! This period in your life is fleeting, and images will help preserve these moments in time, forever.

Leading up to the arrival of your new baby, you’re full of excitement, anticipation, and so much joy. I believe capturing those emotions is so beautiful, and one day you’ll be so grateful that you decided to! I believe maternity photos also capture the beauty and strength of your body as it’s creating new life, and how it’s ever-changing as your bundle of joy continues to grow! As a family and maternity photographer, I’ve never heard of anyone regretting having a maternity session!

The idea of capturing fleeting, intimate details of the current season of your family’s life is one of my greatest passions. I’d like you to pause right now… and think about what you treasure most about this current season. Is it the way your son looks adoringly at your husband, or the way your daughter’s nose wrinkles when she laughs or maybe the way your baby’s head fits perfectly in the nook of your neck?

We never know what twists and turns life has in store for us, and I wholeheartedly believe preserving each season’s unique details is profoundly important.
