I wanted to call this post “Hot Mommas” but I was worried what type of audience that would draw. 🙂 That being said, all of these women are indeed, HOT MOMMAS.
Let’s talk about pregnancy. The time when you’re far heavier than your normal weight and perhaps wondering where the glow is that you were promised. I skipped the glow and instead got bacne. LOVELY. But you know what, I booked a maternity session with my good friends Erin and Corey of SnappShot Photography, got my butt into a techno thumping seat at MAC, slapped on some killer fake lashes and worked that bump like my name was Demi Moore.
Ladies, pregnancy is as beautiful as you make it. And for me, it was a one time thing so I’m so glad that I got over my insecurities and booked a session that produced photos that I absolutely treasure. We’re all our own harshest critics but I defy you to send me a client who doesn’t walk away feeling beautiful. It’s kind of my gift to society. You’re welcome 🙂
Just ask Krystal, the client who started it all for me. From her sleek ponytail to her sparkly Toms, she shined!
Or Jaime who rocked that blinged out belly band like it was the new hot fashion item
Or Julie who showed her Baltimore pride and just how connected she and her husband are. Belly laughs people. LOVE IT!
Or Shannon whose infamous bump now graces the walls of Hoffman OBGYN practices. I call her my Calvin Klien model!
Or Rebecca who seriously should consider a career in modeling. She made 1000 facial expressions in the course of a minute.
Or Anna in all her blonde glory! She looked positively stunning in the simple sheet shot.
Or Sam who finished out the blonde trifecta of gorgeousness. I mean really….I don’t look this good on my best day, not pregnant.
Then came Katie with the most gorgeous hair I’ve ever seen. Pregnant with her third boy, she actually did 2 maternity sessions so she could incorporate her 2 boys and her hubby. Clearly she cherishes these moments spent building a family!
And lastly, Suzanne. Oh Suzanne. You stole all the pregnancy glow that I was waiting for. Positively radiant and clearly crazy in love with the experience. Looking at your pictures makes me feel jubilant!
So ladies, don’t sweat the bacne or the stretch marks or whatever is holding you back from capturing these moments. You’ll be sad you didn’t do this. Call me Justin Timberlake: I’m bringing sexy back. And I’m making pregnancy chic. And all the cool kids are doing it.
