I love being a maternity photographer! It’s one of my favorite types of sessions to capture. There is so much anticipation and love. Pregnancy is absolutely beautiful! Although being pregnant can sometimes feel like forever, it’s such a short time in life. It should be documented. Looking back on maternity photos will bring back all those feelings of excitement and wonder.
I’d like you to meet my friend, Kristine. Kristine is mom to 3 beautiful little girls. We’ve been friends 3 years now (feels like longer… in a good way). Photographer brought us together. I love the friends photography has brought into my life. Not only is she my friend, she is my photographer. 🙂 We recently went to see Kristine for our family session (will share soon). After we were finished, I had maybe 10 minutes left of light. I’m so happy she let me take these photos of her!
Kristine has been trying to have this baby for many years. She and her family have suffered loss on their journey. The times she would message me with exciting news only to be followed by sadness. My heart broke for her. I have always wished I lived closer to her, but in those moments, I longed to be her neighbor. I wanted to be physically present for her. I just can’t imagine what she was feeling and what she will continue to feel.
Then the day came when she breathed a huge sigh of relief. She was pregnant again and this time things were different. She felt different and baby was growing! There was so much excitement over this baby. It’s about time! I’m so excited for them all. And guess what! She is having a BOY!!! She gets to experience that bond that moms share with their sons. I’m so beyond thrilled. I can’t wait to meet this little boy and snuggle him. Yes, I may just overstay my welcome. 😉 Congratulations Kraft family! I love you all!
