We all want to look and feel like a goddess when we are pregnant right? Some us do + some of you don't feel like it, but I believe that you all look like a goddess!
I certainly didn't feel like it, but I still wish I had stunning images like these to document that journey! I didn't get them until my fourth pregnancy and they will be images forever cherished.
We all come in different shapes and sizes + I struggle to understand why it is a constant battle to accept ourselves as we are + embrace our own unique beauty! This is one battle I have struggled with myself and I am getting better and better everyday at embracing me for me + I hope you can to! It's a mental game I'm tellin' ya!
No matter your shape or size, you look STUNNING + I'm here for you!
If you want to look your best for your session, there are a few things I always recommend:
1. Get a spray tan! Yes, even you fair-skinned beauties out there! I've got a gal and let me tell you, she is ah-mazing! She is a streak free, Oompa Loompa free, very natural looking spray tan type of gal and she truly does beautiful work!
She recommends getting your tan 1-2 days prior to your shoot + believe me... if you have crazy ideas about wanting to be really dark, she'll tell you no and why ;)

I promise, you won't regret it!
2. Wear form fitting clothing and flattering cut dresses. I've got you covered here mama... literally! I have a large selection of dresses in my studio for mamas of all shapes and sizes so you don't need to worry about a thing! I'm here for you because I want you to look + feel your very best kind of beautiful!
3. Get your hair and makeup done. If you're anything like me, you will second guess how you look the entire way to your session + be completely unsure if you did the right thing by the time you get there or wishing you would have done something different! Getting your hair and makeup done takes the guesswork off yourself + gives you the perfect boost of confidence to walk in and rock your shoot!
4. Bring your kids + the hubs!
If you are a little unsure about having pregnancy photos taken, bring your kids and hubby! This takes some of the focus off of you + puts it on the moment we create.
This is a time in your life that deserves to be cherished forever. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that unfortunately not every woman gets to embrace for herself so own it! You are beautiful and you should be celebrated!
