The importance of maternity photography is priceless. Maternity photography is not at the top of the list of couples because mothers feel unsure of all the changes in their body and aren’t sure that these changes were something that they wanted to remember. Swelling, stretch marks, etc. are the ones which they don’t love. But getting maternity photos can help you look back at them, and remember the connection your son/daughter and you shared before he/she was born. It isn’t something that you do only for yourselves. You do it for the baby growing inside. You do it to be able to share the experience with them. You do it to be able to show them how they grew. You document your pregnancy to look back and laugh with your child at the cravings and the hormones. Being pregnant is a time of celebration. Think back to the most important celebratory moments, such as the day you were married… and the importance of a photographer is obvious. Maternity is the time that is no different. Maternity photography can be a great heirloom to pass on to your child. Having a nice album made, or including maternity photography in their newborn album is just another way to celebrate how life was made inside of our own.
Forget the extra pounds and the swelling… you will want to remember this moment of celebration in your life!
