“Where there is great love, there are always miracles” – Willa Cather
Maternity shoots are always a hard one- 9 times of of 10, mum doesn’t feel beautiful…. but here’s the thing, and I’ve said this before: she IS beautiful! Being pregnant is one of God’s greatest miracles… that in your womb, you could nurture and carry this perfect child from a dot right through to complete and utter perfection. The privilege of that responsibility is beautiful, that as you walk around, inside you God is weaving, knitting, growing, perfecting. And that’s really what I hope to capture when I take photos… the miracle of growing life.
This little family is very dear to me, and in just a few short weeks will be welcoming their second little boy. Eeek. A houseful of boys. So exciting. So loud. So busy. So AWESOME!
So, we were having a discussion about how big the baby was. And we decided there was only one way to tell!So to all you preggie ladies out there: as you contemplate your weight gain, or your stretch marks, or how hot and uncomfortable you feel, remember that you, my friend, are a walking miracle, and proof of God’s grace, and his love.
Be joyful xx
