Why you should photograph your pregnancy

Maternity Photography Matters| Photographer Casey Louise

Hey there everyone! It’s me, Casey Louise your Seattle and Snohomish based motherhood photographer and friend. If you are an expecting mom or pregnant person who is thinking of getting maternity photography, I am your girl! Motherhood begins with maternity and then moves into newborn and beyond. This blog is all about why capturing the maternity stage matters.

Your maternity photographer's top reasons to book pregnancy photos!

1.) I truly can’t think of a more incredible process our bodies can go through. We spend our entire lives inside of our ever changing bodies. We grow, we shrink and we stretch. This season is a time of growth because you are creating a new life inside of you. Growth can be challenging. It can change the way we see ourselves and effect our confidence one way or another.

2.) Celebrate with an intimate maternity session! On top of our bodies changing physically, we also become tired and uncomfortable as we get farther along. That can make it challenging to want to get dressed up and pose for pictures. A maternity session with me captures the raw beauty of your changing body. I want to increase your body confidence and highlight the magic you are creating.

3.) My entire life I have felt self conscious about my stomach. My belly has never been flat or had abs. During pregnancy my stomach became my FAVORITE part of my body. It was big and round and firm and was holding my baby girl inside. I loved touching my pregnant stomach and feeling my baby moving inside. This was the first time I was able to connect with and interact with my baby. This was also the first time I felt completely confident in my body. I understand many expecting mothers feel the opposite about their new body during this time. That’s why I am so passionate about capturing your stunning new curves and moments of you connecting with the baby you are growing.

4.) Maternity photography sessions help you increase body confidence as well as remember the excitement and mystery of growing your baby, when you were one with each other. Looking back, you won’t regret capturing your pregnancy.

5.) Finally, you never know if you’ll get to have this experience again. This one is hard to mention because everyone hopes if they want to be pregnant it will happen. After having my daughter, I never imagined I would struggle with infertility and I am. Infertility is so challenging in every way. When I was pregnant, even when it didn’t feel magical, I didn’t think it would be the last time. I am so thankful I was able to photograph that unique experience in all of it’s beauty. I find it more important than ever to capture your pregnancy journey and celebrate everything you and your body is going through!
