I am a portrait maternity photographer for Kirkcaldy , Edinburgh and Glasgow.
I am also a mum of two little active children.
From time to time my daughter pulls out an old album with photographs of her before she was born. She loves looking at those images and so do I. I didn’t look amazing during the pregnancy, but I am so happy I have those photos anyway. This time is never coming back and having those memories captured and printed on paper is invaluable. And yes, on paper, not just on the hard drive that could fail one day. You will never be pregnant with the same baby again, there is no way of revisiting the past and creating photographs you lost, especially if they are time sensitive.
Stacey and Gordon are waiting for their first baby and my heart is filled with happiness and excitement for them and for myself. I will get to meet their new baby soon! In few years this baby will walk and talk and ask all sorts of questions, and Stacey will pull the album out and show her child how much he was loved even before he came to the world, even before he was held in his parents’ arms for the first time.
Pregnancy photographs are best done around 28-34 weeks of pregnancy. They are wonderful addition to the newborn photographs or a fantastic time for a family photography session.
