I am loving photographing baby bumps more and more. There’s something about a maternity portrait session. I love how empowering it is. This session was especially so for me – and I hope for Hayley too.
Hayley is my best friend – and never before has Hayley had the confidence and peace with her self image enough to allow me to properly photograph her individually. Hayley seems to have a pride now – a wonder at what her body is capable of. A sense of respect that her amazing body has the ability to grow and nourish her much wanted little baby boy.
Not only is she incredibly capable, but incredibly beautiful inside and out. I see these images and get choked up because they mean so much more than just documenting a time in Hayley’s life when she was pregnant for the first time. It is documenting a time in her life where there has been a transition – one which will forever change Hayley and her husband Graeme’s lives.
I guess I am a bit gushy because she’s my bestie – but regardless – such milestones put things into perspective right?
(Love you Hayles babe!)
