Remember a few weeks ago when I shared five reasons why you should get maternity photos taken? You can read it here. Well, I had so many reasons that I decided to split it into two separate blog posts. Today I’m sharing five more reasons why you should get maternity photos taken.
1. Have images worth displaying
Many people display their wedding photos on the walls. Why not have beautiful imagery from every stage of your family’s growth displayed too? These moments are just as worthy of being hung on your walls as your wedding images. Your children will love seeing photos of your wedding next to photos of them in your belly, next to their newborn photos, next to their first year photos.
2. Believe it or not, you’re going to miss your bump
No matter how you feel right now, there will come a day when you will think back on your pregnancy and miss that bump in front of you. Getting maternity photographs taken will allow you to freeze this stage of your life in a beautiful way, so you can cherish it forever.
3. Your kids will love looking at these photos when they are older
I always loved looking back on family photos and reliving moments in time I couldn’t easily remember or moments that happened before I was born. Photographs of my parents earlier in their relationship fascinated me. I marveled at the photos of my siblings holding me as a baby, fresh home from the hospital. But I don’t have any photos of my mom pregnant with me. I wish I did though. Trust me, your kids will love sifting through your family photographs when they are older too.
4. Involve Siblings
Whether they fully understand it yet or not, your older kids’ worlds are about to change big time. Involving them in your maternity portrait session is a great way to have some time with them before the baby arrives. I always love chatting with older siblings about their thoughts on a new baby.
5. Great introduction to your newborn photographer
As a maternity and newborn photographer, I love it when families book both of these sessions with me. Watching families transition to life with a new baby is a privilege and a joy. It also allows me the opportunity to help you plan for some cohesion between your sessions. I’ll work with you to make sure that your images pair beautifully together, whether you do an album or a gallery wall.
Maternity photography sessions have a very special place in my heart. Documenting this time for families as they grow, warms my heart! I truly love the work I do and feel so lucky that I get to witness some of the most beautiful moments in a family’s life.
