When I was pregnant with my daughter four years ago I felt like most pregnant women….I felt bloated and well, fat. The last thing I wanted was a photograph of me looking like this. Someone would turn the camera on me, and I would turn away. I believe someone caught me at my baby shower, which would be the only photographic record of me carrying Annika.
I look back now and it brings me to tears. I can’t believe I let those superficial reasons stop me having a photograph taken of me carrying my princess. With Annika likely being our only child, I won’t be able to get those images back.
So when Dana contacted me about doing a maternity shoot, I was excited. But when she told me she had decided pretty last minute (she is due any day now!) to have these done, I was so thankful she decided to do it. She had the same worries most pregnant women have, but in the end, she knew she wanted to document this important time in her life.
So here are Dana and Griffin…anxiously awaiting the birth of their own little prince….and I am so thankful they chose me to document such an important time.
