As I go through maternity shoots and edit them the one thing that stands out to me, especially for couple’s who are having their first child, is the thought that your child will never see this time in your life unless it’s photographed.  A little love story emerges with each frame of the shoot.

A maternity shoot is like a love letter to your baby, something your child can look at when he or she is older.  Your child will see the immense love and excitement you had even before he or she was born. 

A maternity shoot says “Dear baby, we can’t wait to see you!  This is how things were before you came along.  This is the joy that you gave us even before we were able to hold you in our arms.  You are loved, forever and always.”
