Kelly has been a client of mine for a while now. When I was the first person she told about her pregnancy, I can't even explain to you how special that is! We pulled off a successful reveal session to her husband and just recently finished her maternity session. She mentioned never having done a studio session or anything like this before so I was excited to wow her with a beautifully styled studio maternity session! Here is a little from Kelly about her pregnancy so far and her experience at the session. Now we just wait for baby!
What is the first thing that ran through your mind when you found out you were pregnant?
I️ couldn’t believe we were expecting our third child! After 2 years of infertility treatments and experiencing our first loss of our first pregnancy. we didn’t think any pregnant was possible let alone 3. I️ was surprised!
What have been the most memorable parts of this pregnancy?
Seeing our oldest daughter understand what’s happening to mommy and love on my belly. Listening to her talk about her baby brother to be and seeing her excitement brings us so much joy! And how could I️ not mention keeping my known positive pregnancy test a secret for a few weeks so Angie and I️ could plan a surprise reveal to my hubby! He was so surprised! And it was such a perfect memorable time!
Did you have any pregnancy cravings? What were they?
A few! I’ve always craved sweets, but I’ve also enjoyed salty cravings like cheese curls and I️ love Golden Grams cereal!
What was your favorite part about our session together?
How simple and easy it was! I️ truly loved everything but I️ really enjoyed the studio session! I️ loved being able to change into many of the gowns. Feeling comfortable and relaxed made everything so easy and smooth!
How did you prepare for our photo shoot? How was your experience? Were you nervous or worried before? How did it turn out?
I️ prepared by doing my hair and makeup for something special! My experience was amazing! I️ was nervous doing a studio session because I had done an outdoor session for my last two pregnancies. However, I️ loved the change of atmosphere! It was so relaxing and the pictures turned out better than anything I️ had envisioned! I️ was so extremely happy with the decision to do a studio session and would do it again in a heartbeat!
Do you have a favorite photo from your session? If so, which one?
I love all of our photos and found it hard to just pick one!
What would be your advice to someone getting maternity photographs taken?
Embrace your pregnancy beauty! It is a beautiful time and feeling beautiful in the body your are in carrying that miracle baby is something that should be embraced! I️ have always felt self conscious! However I️ haven’t felt that beautiful since our wedding day! Even though my husband tells me everyday, there was something so special about our session that helped me embrace my pregnancy curves and appearance!
Do you have other children? How do they react to the pregnancy? Feel free to share a little about them here.
We have two other children. Our daughter is 3 and she loves on my belly every single day! She understands better this time what’s happening to mommy. She asked everyday is baby is ready to come out yet! Her excitement is so contagious and such a joy to watch! Our son is 18 months currently and will be 20 months when the baby is born. He kisses my belly and likes pulling my shirt up! He points and says baby to my belly. I️ am so anxious to see the bond he develops with his brother! Him and his sister share such a close bond being 19 months apart and I pray that carries through!
Anything else you'd like to add about your session and final images?
We loved everything about our session! We were both so pleased with our images and session. It was relaxing and easy to do with our two young kids! I️ haven’t felt that beautiful in a photo since our wedding pictures! I️ honestly can say there isn’t one thing that we regretted or didn’t like.
