Mommy and Me Maternity

This is the second maternity session we’ve done together, but this one was so special since their son is a total lover and tried stealing momma’s show! OMG CUTE! I do have this question a lot, can we do “some standard maternity pictures” with hubby and family as well as all the fun ones? ABSOLUTELY. I just have you come separately. You arrive first for hair and makeup and momma time, and then we have them arrive just about when you’re ready. We do those lined gown shots with family first, and then when we are set there, they leave and we do all the other artsy, nakie ones.

This is such a brief part of our lives, but such a huge one, it should be documented every way possible!

Q: What brought you to book a boudoir experience?

A: I had done one previously and knew it would be amazing to do again. It just boosts your confidence.

Q: How did you feel leading up to, and during your experience?
I was a little nervous leading up to the shot, 32 weeks pregnant is not something I was comfortable showing off. During the experience I let go off my insecurities and just enjoyed being there and trusting Amanda to make me look amazing. I was nervous, questioning if I was being selfish to spend all of this money on myself just to make myself feel better.
Q: Describe your experience to your best friend. Give us the hype! 

A: You walk in a little nervous, but walked out feeling like a badass and could take on the world. It was freeing and built my confidence up. It was so relieving to let go of everything and just really enjoy being a mom with another one on the way. This is truly an experience I will not forget.

Q: How did seeing your final images at viewing make you feel?

A: It made me ridiculously happy. Amanda captured me and my life perfectly! Everything was perfect!

Q: Has your experience impacted your personal life, self esteem, confidence, relationships, etc. in a way you’d like to share?

A: This experience has helped me embrace my ever growing baby bump. I was really insecure about, but this really helped me realize my body is doing something amazing. It really should be cherished.

Q: Anything you’d like to add in your blog feature?

A: This has helped me overcome being ashamed of being a larger woman. It was amazing to embrace me and being a woman. I truly walked out of there feeling like I was on top of the world and no one could stop me.
