Emily’s Maternity Portraits
“If I had my life to live over, instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.” – Erma Bombeck
Working with maternity clients has not only brought me so much opportunity for creativity and inspiration and the reminders of all that was good about my pregnancy. I loved wondering when I would feel the first kick. Then feeling a flutter and thinking it was the baby but not being totally sure! It was amazing when they were big enough to where I could tell their head from their heel. My oldest boys were very laid back and quiet in the womb. Aidan, my fiery one, did somersaults! Even today, their personalities are the same as before they were born. I loved the braxton hicks contractions and how my belly would get hard as a rock and almost take my breath away. I loved my husband doting over me and not letting me lift a finger without worrying. I especially miss that! :)
I think beautiful Emily and her adoring husband Jay are the perfect example of how to approach the miracle of pregnancy. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and later. Congratulations you two! I wish you all the happiness in life and I am honored that you chose Captures by Erin for your artistic maternity photography.
