By the time Erin and Jeff met me for her maternity portrait session, the lovely little lady was ready to pop. I didn’t know it though! Look how tiny she looks!
Erin was a little unsure of the camera at first, as many people tend to be (so don’t worry if you’re camera shy, you’re not alone!). But Jeff and then Hank and Louie joined in on the action and the more we all went along together, you could see the stress just slip away.
I can only imagine how hard it must be for women who are pounds and pounds heavier than they’re used to, with a whole new body, to stand in front of a camera and feel great. I mean, the miracle of child birth is a beautiful thing, and I hope that every woman can appreciate that and feel it as she goes through it. But I am a woman. And I know how difficult it can be to look in the mirror and feel great about your body. So mad props and cheers to all the preggers out there who walk around proud. You should be. And after a few minutes into our session, Erin really was.
She really was ready to pop though; she had her baby two weeks after our shoot and I’m excited to meet the little guy! For now, here’s Erin in all her pregnant awesomeness. Jeff, her husband, and Hank and Louie, her two other kids. 🙂
