Editorial style maternity sessions are not always easy to capture but Sarah Guy of Labour of Love Photography does an amazing job of accomplishing just that. For the modern moms-to-be out there here are some images from my maternity shoot earlier this year. I have to admit, I did not go into this wanting maternity photos, I was actually researching newborn sessions and happened to come across a great package that included pregnant pictures as well. In the end I was so happy that I did this. Not only are the photos great and in line with my taste, but they are a snapshot into a really special time in my life. I would highly recommend all pregnant women do these, as you will one day be thankful that you did.
I love these pictures because they capture everything about my pregnancy; my staple black leggings that I wore on a daily basis, whether it was appropriate to do so or not, the snow that I very often had to trek in to make it to my neighbourhood starbucks, the story books I collected for my son’s nursery, and the minute by minute stroking of my belly which I could not help but do on a regular. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do, and that they give you some great ideas for your own shoot.
