“Before you were born I carried you under my heart. From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart.” -Mandy Harrison
I have to be honest. Doing a photo session with an expectant mother for the first time is always a challenge. There is a discovery period of how comfortable she is in physical movement and in posing.
It may take a while to find that comfort level, but once it is reached, there is a whole new level of beauty that can be captured. This beauty lies within a mother who chooses to do something that only the female body can do: bring a new life into this world.
There is a moment of awe when I am able to capture photos that show the beauty in this progression to entering motherhood.
