Maternity Boudoir | Samantha

To say I am in love with pregnant bellies is an understatement! They just make me happy. I was dying to get a mama to be in the studio for a Maternity Boudoir Session.

Pregnancy is the PERFECT time for boudoir, many think it’s the worst. But it’s the ultimate femininity marker. Soft, plump, glowing skin, beautiful hair (pregnancy hair is the best!) a round belly growing your little human each day. 😍 aka perfect for photos!

Everyone wants maternity photos anyway, why not capture the true raw form that pregnancy is under all the maternity clothes and dresses?!

I hate when mama’s put themselves down during their pregnancies. We for sure need to change that and change the stigma of pregnancy and birth being horrible. It’s hard, but it’s not horrible (unless you had a truly traumatic experience).

Samantha, thank you for sharing your belly with me. You are beautiful and your baby boy is perfect!

I only had a short maternity boudoir session with Samantha but, it left me spinning with more ideas and I can not wait to photograph another mama to be!
