Not everyone wants maternity pictures since not everyone feels their best, but I say go for it anyways because this is such a beautiful, precious and amazing time. These were taken at Wade Lagoon in the Cleveland Museum of Art, part of my spring mini sessions. Yes, spring is here and new life is all around us from blossoming trees to expecting baby mamas!
I personally loved being pregnant. I felt great, hardly had any discomfort associated with pregnancy and really cherished this time. For goodness sake, a human was growing inside of me! When I met this expecting mommy she had a smile on her face and was ready to get the shoot started. Sometimes I feel like I still work at University Hospitals because I photograph so many people that happen to work there. Word travels quickly and it's a good thing! The beautiful mommy is a ICU nurse. She is very excited about having a little baby boy soon! I thought she looked absolutely stunning and had that gorgeous pregnancy glow. My favorite image from below is one where she is facing the water and blends in perfectly with the blues in her dress. It looks so peaceful and authentically real.
Thank you for choosing me as your maternity photographer. It's a true honor.
