These are Moments to Treasure | Richmond Hill Maternity Photographer

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.

    Oh Britt – I had the same issues during my pregnancy! I wish I would have put those feelings aside too. These are beautiful & will be cherished for years to come – Great job!!!

  • Jenny Jardine

    This is such an important time to have photograph’s done, mom is going to love that she did these!

  • JILL

    She looks beautiful! You did a wonderful job of capturing her joy and the excitement of the upcoming birth. It’s so good she decided to have these done! I also have too few photos of me pregnant. Carrying twins made me feel twice as bad and not ‘picture perfect pregnant’. I have the same regrets of not allowing more photos of the babies inside me.

  • These are so great! Love the last one!

  • These are Beautiful!!! Excellent Job!

  • Sharon Miller

    She’ll be so glad she had these done. She is beautiful and you’re right, you can’t get these moments back.

    I love your blog. Great colors.

  • Britt, wow. Your words had me a little teary. I too didn’t have enough memories of myself pregnant with my son, so I definitely made up for it when pregnant with my daughter! Great shots!
