As a Huntsville maternity photographer, the BIGGEST regret that I hear from new moms is NOT having maternity portraits. You quickly forget how beautiful your big belly was- although right now it may feel heavy and uncomfortable. You and your body deserve to be celebrated in a gorgeous maternity photoshoot that you can look back on and cherish.
This gorgeous mama is expecting her first baby! Kati was unsure at first if she wanted to do maternity photos, but she wants to remember how beautiful it is to carry her precious baby boy.
Kati married her husband in 2018 and planned to have her big wedding in March of 2020, but the world changed and they had to put those plans on hold.
However, at the end of May, we got to celebrate their beautiful baby boy on the way with a maternity photo shoot. The geese wanted to join in on the fun, too!
Kati found out that she was pregnant the day after Thanksgiving 2019, and a few days shy of her husband’s first deployment.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better way of sending him off on deployment.”
Currently Kati is awaiting the safe return of her husband from his second deployment overseas.
“My one piece of wisdom for my baby boy, to carry through life, is to cherish life for everything it has to offer. Love everything about it and everyone who comes into your life. Never regret a thing that happens as it only gives you experience. And strive to always do better.”
I love getting to know my clients better, and I love what Kati told me:
“My hopes for Lucas are that he grows up to be a strong man who loves family. My hopes are that he is successful in whatever he chooses to do, and that he never regrets a single thing that he may go through.”
As a Huntsville maternity photographer, I also love when clients tell me about their children’s excitement when looking at portraits of “When I was in Mommy’s belly.”
Don’t let this glowing season pass you by. Capture this joyful, fleeting moment before it’s gone.
