New Jersey Maternity Photographer
I will never forget that day my beautiful baby sister texted me and said.. "I love those maternity photo shoots you do in the Milk Bath, do you think I would look great in a session like that?" It was 7 am in the morning mind you, and I had just woken up. I didn't understand the question so I picked up the phone and called her.. She repeated the question to me. I replied "Why would you want to wear a maternity dress for a milk bath photo?" I was puzzled...And just then it clicked... I am going to be an aunt... I should have said that my baby sister & her husband have been trying for years to have a baby and for years they thought it just couldn't happen. I am sure like many.. As soon as they decided to stop trying to get pregnant that is when it happened. I immediately started sobbing. I was so happy that my baby sister was soon going to become a mom. That she would be able to enjoy all the special moments that I was able to enjoy in life with three little girls. I think I cried for a whole 5 min.
The moment I know she was pregnant I knew I wanted to capture her pregnancy though the months.. She is now 6 months and there isn't a moment that I am not ready to pick up a camera and take a photo of her beautiful glowing belly so we can remember this moment forever. It doesn't hurt that she is stunning...
Boy do I wish I did this for myself when I was pregnant with my now 20,15,10 year old daughters. So I will live through her.. And the best part I will be an aunt of a little girl very soon.. I am the aunt of 3 handsome little boys but finally we get a girl in my family!
If I could say anything to all you moms out there that are pregnant and thinking of getting pictures of yourself.. YOU are Beautiful. It doesn't matter if you can or can not afford a photographer, pick up any camera and remember these moments.. This will be your one and only pregnancy with this child.. Remember everything about it, the good the bad and the in between. Even if you take those photos and you hide them under a pillow. Remember these moments because when your children are grown they will never remember you for being heavy or any other hang ups that us women put on ourselves. What they will remember are the moments. The Love that you guys shared. Children love us unconditionally. We need to make sure to remember that as women.
Thank you my beautifully amazing sister for allowing me to photograph you during this special moment, and I am not done.. Be sure to check back for more amazing images to come. This journey of pregnancy will be something you will never forget..
