While some might shy away from a maternity photography session because of maybe how they look or feel while pregnant, here at Bundles Photography we love capturing this momentous chapter with first-time parents and growing families. Whether this is your first pregnancy or third, no two pregnancies are the same and each one means the dynamic of your family will soon change once your new bundle of joy arrives. So if you’re still on the fence about whether or not to do a maternity photography session, consider these reasons.
Marks a milestone
If you are first-time parents, expecting a child into this world is a huge occasion and marks a milestone in your relationship and family. It’s safe to say it’ll never be the same! It’s what makes capturing this chapter in your life so special. Plus, when your child is older they will appreciate seeing how beautiful and happy mama was while they were in the womb.
Bonds a family
I love how maternity shoots will bond a couple or a family. The photo session is an opportunity for couples to be reminded of their love and take a moment to see how their lives are about to change. For families who already have children, this is a bonding time to remember the family dynamics as it is today. I love incorporating soon-to-be big brothers or sisters in the photo shoot as they get to bond with their parents.
Captures a glow
Whether you are feeling the glow or not, every pregnant mama has it! There is something within that shines when you are about to give birth to a baby. There’s no hiding the love and excitement that comes with knowing you will soon be meeting a new addition to your family. I wish it was a glow we could bottle up and sell, but capturing it in a Kansas City maternity shoot might be the closest we get! Plus, baby bumps themselves are so beautiful.
