When I told my husband I wanted to have maternity photos taken, he was a little hesitant. Mainly because he hates having his picture taken, which doesn’t make sense to me because he’s so good looking! Haha. But I got him to agree to it anyways. I must admit, my maternity session was to die for. At least in my opinion. Britany of The Light & The Love was so hands on and is one of the sweetest, most down to earth souls ever. She met us on site and knew the location extremely well. She was telling us what to do and how to pose (my husband definitely needed that) and she had a few images edited for us to see that night. I’m not even kidding when I say this, I cried when I saw them. She was able to capture so much more than just my husband and I. She captured the love we have for one another, my love for being a soon-to-be mama, the relationship my husband and I grew from this experience, and our happiness. I’ve never felt more beautiful, even being 33 weeks pregnant and swollen. I’m not even kidding when I say this, I was so swollen that I couldn’t even wear my wedding ring, but I somehow managed to squeeze it on. I guess enough lotion and determination does that. But it truly does say a lot because most pregnant woman don’t feel beautiful all the time. It’s these moments that I will forever be grateful for. To be able to look back and remember that I was pregnant for the first time with the man that I love and our little baby boy. To remember that those 9 months were worth the extremely long wait. To be constantly reminded that woman are strong and that the female body can do amazing things. That knowing you are carrying a life that makes up half of you and half of the person you love is worth every single second. I miss being pregnant because of these moments. Thank you Britany for capturing this special moment and for making us feel like we’ve known you for forever. You’re truly amazing.
