Since having my daughter, I've been trying to decide if I'll go for a second one. A couple of weeks ago, I did a maternity session of this cute couple who you can tell, is super excited to meet their baby, so all of those thoughts came rushing through my mind again.
Being pregnant wasn't the easiest to me, but it was amazing to feel my baby tumbling in my belly. I don't think I knew love until I got pregnant. I thought I knew, but the minute I found out I was expecting, I knew in the deepest sense, what love meant. And how powerful this feeling is, because that tiny being, the size of a grain of rice at the time, already had so much power over me.
Maternity Sessions are so much fun! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy all the action filled family session with running toddlers, or even the crying babies (I love to capture crying babies, it's so raw!), but to see the excitement in the parents eyes, and talk about all their fears, dreams and expectations... The mothers usually just glow, right? I don't know if it's the hormones, but they're also super giggly and just plain happy, in another words, a joy to photograph!
Sometimes I miss being pregnant... sometimes I don't (newborn days are not much fun). I knew when it was time to get pregnant the first time, I guess I'll know if or when I'll be ready for another one. For now, all the best wishes for the soon-to-be parents, love and health!
