Life changes… fast. That is an absolute certainty. Nine months may feel like a long time, but it goes by in the blink of an eye. Change happens to a mother’s body, sure, but the family dynamic is where the lasting change happens.
* **In no way am I making light of what happens to a warrior mama’s body during pregnancy but the bulk of our changes come and go… aside from beautiful stretch mark reminders that you grew life and the ability to jump on a trampoline without peeing your pants a little… those are more permanent.***
It was just the two of you once. Remember that? Look back at all of those pre-baby photos and selfies of a younger you. Now you’re in a season where you’re expecting your first, second, third, etc. little one and BIG change is coming for you. Nine months may feel like a long time to soak it all in before your newborn arrives, but I promise he/she will come faster that you think. Appreciating the life and family that you have before that day comes is important and it’s why I adore the packages I’ve built to help first time and veteran parents document their family BEFORE and AFTER.
Scroll on to see what a family maternity session and in home newborn session can look like. Every family is different in every season. All of those stages are beautiful and personal.
Sending many thanks to this amazing gang for always trusting me to be ‘one of the family’ while I naturally document all of their amazing love along the way.
