And it all starts with you – growing humans is hard work and all these things should be celebrated.
Maternity lifestyle sessions are all about celebrating motherhood and embracing this time of your life, I want to capture not just what it looks like, but what it feels like … And for every women and family this experience is uniquely yours.
This session took place in a natural location, just outside of Cambridge, during what us photographers like to call the ‘golden hour’. I have always loved this location, and when Kelsey trusted me enough to agree to have their session take place wherever I wanted it too, I instantly knew where I wanted to take them.
We were able to utilise the gorgeous natural environment while the sun went down. This time of the day is my absolute favourite to photograph in, I really do encourage my clients to have their sessions then. The light is warmer and softer, just perfection.
It still blows my mind that women can grow a human, that someday this person growing inside your belly will walk and talk and have their own incredible personality!
‘Mama…you were given these children – you. No one else. You were given these children because you are who they need. You have the soul to love them even on their hard days. You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours mama. On the days you are questioning this, remember this. You’ve got this.’ · unknown
