Sometimes, even if you feel huge, you take pictures just so you don’t regret it.
I am pregnant with my fourth baby. With the first two babies I was smaller…but there’s just something about being pregnant that makes you feel big no matter what. Well now that the fourth baby was coming, I knew I should probably get some pictures done to capture the beauty of carrying a child…or I might forever regret it. And there is no going back.
With this fourth baby I am bigger than I’ve ever been, and I kept procrastinating scheduling some maternity photos, then finally scheduled some and felt too big and clunky to want to do them. So let’s get real: I canceled them. I knew I might regret it if I didn’t at least capture the memory of pregnancy, so I finally got the bravery, called my assistant, and asked her to take a few shots with me.
We headed up to the State Capitol of Idaho in Boise. I knew they had marble walls with wonderful window light, and I wanted some indoor window-lit photos.
Even though pregnancy is hard for me, there’s no denying it is magical. And some photos to treasure that magic and miracle were some things I didn’t want to pass up.
Thanks to my amazing assistant, Rachael, we got just the shots I was thinking of. Soft, sentimental, special.
Thank you Rachael! And gratitude to my Father in Heaven for the opportunity to carry His children into this world. There is nothing more dear, more difficult, more rewarding, more wondrous than that of being a mother.
