When Kayla contacted me to take her maternity photos and explained to me why she wanted them taken, I was not only impressed but I knew in that moment that she would be an amazing Mama. Kayla acknowledged that while she didn’t necessarily love her pregnant body, she knew that being able to carry a baby was a big deal and it was worth celebrating.
I think as a society, and even us women, we tend to underestimate the miracle that is pregnancy. It’s more than being pregnant, it’s part of the journey to giving life. Life that you and your spouse created. Pregnancy is not weird. Pregnancy is not being “fat”. Pregnancy is beautiful and pregnancy should be celebrated. Thank you for letting me celebrate with you, Al and Kayla. You will be amazing parents and I cannot wait to meet Mr. Carter!
