Maternity: Katie and Her Girls

Oh my, this maternity session just blew me away. I mean have you ever seen a more beautiful mamma to be? What was interesting about this session is that this incredibly beautiful woman hates photos of herself more than anyone I have ever met, and has a very hard time seeing her own beauty.  My number one goal with this shoot, as it is with every shoot, was to show this woman the beauty I see in her. I wanted her to see herself how those who love her see her.  If I can achieve that in a session nothing else matters. Maternity sessions are so special to me. Pregnancy feels like such a fleeting moment looking back on it, and to have the chance to capture it for all time for my clients makes me so happy.

This radiant mamma is Katie. She is a mother of two adorable girls and expecting another any day now.  She is a pilates instructor and food blogger, check out her fantastic work here epicureanmom.com.  It was such an honor to get to meet her and her lovely family, and especially to photograph her in this incredible time in her life.  I’m really going to overshare here, but I can’t help it, this session is positively swoon worthy.
