What a special time being pregnant is; you wait, sometimes not so patiently, for your little miracle to arrive, and yet when you look back upon those 9 months that seemed to drag by, it can be hard to remember them. We are so busy eating the right things, seeing the doctor, painting and decorating a nursery, picking a name… and then in the blink of an eye, your new, tiny miracle is here and those months of love and sacrifice are gone. I love that maternity portraits have the ability to stop time, for a brief moment, and capture that anticipation every new parent has. Every time I do maternity portraits, I leave thinking the same thing… body image, morning sickness and to-do list aside, this, my friends, is a miracle that deserves to be celebrated.
