Although it may seem like it lasts forever, this time in your life is fleeting. Your pregnancy and life before baby will quickly change and your little one will grow so much in the first year. It is all a bit of a blur – trust me, I know!
My maternity sessions capture your bump, but they are so much more. What was life like before kids? Did you enjoy coffee and walks in the park? If you already have kids what is life like before the new ones arrival?
Newborns grow SO MUCH and it is amazing how much they change even in the first month. What will you remember in five years? I bet you want portraits of you and your family but what about the little thing like that blanket grandma knitted, or the stack of diapers in the corner (or even changing a diaper – yes that goes away one day!) What about all those baby books that you carefully chose or that favourite onesie? These are all things that make up your life right now and that may seem trivial now but will bring tears to your eyes years from now.
My number one aim though is to show the love your family has right now.
