Hey everyone it is me. Arika, your Central Wisconsin Family and Wedding Photographer!
Today I am going to talk about maternity sessions! Primarily WHY you should book one.
First of all, those nine months goes by so very quickly, trust me (even though it might not feel like it). I know from my own mommy experience with my two boys. Speaking from my own personal experience aside from those weekly bump-date pictures, I never had an actual maternity session for either of my pregnancies. And let me tell you, it is one of my BIGGEST regrets. Let me convince you why you need this session done!
Me 18 weeks pregnant with my first son
You will want to look back on yourself carrying your blessing. Your body is so strong and accomplished a lot in a small time frame. Pregnancy is an incredible, emotional, amazing experience. You are literally growing LIFE inside of you!
One day your child may ask to see these photographs of you pregnant with them. When you show them, watch their sweet expressions come across their faces.
This one is simple, to Spoil yourself! You look wonderful...No really I promise you that you do! Have your hair and makeup done and feel how beautiful being pregnant really is. Your body is telling a story right now, and you should capture it.
Sometimes, it is hard to remember pregnancy. I can speak to this first hand. I look back at those simple bump-date pictures I snapped myself on my phone and try to imagine what I looked like in that moment. Some pregnant women are sick most of the time, some are exhausted, all while the months are counting down. You will want to look back and see just how incredible you truly are.
Now, I know you might be on the fence about booking a session. It might be the last thing on your mind right now with preparing for a big arrival. I get it, I really do. But this is a beautiful time in your life that you will want to remember! I promise you that you won't regret it!
