Do you ever come across a mom to be and think to yourself…OMG she is just gorgeous and has natural beauty? Do you say to yourself, I would LOVE to photograph her? And before you know it you are babbling like a fool? NO? Ugh just me then lol.
That is typically the way it goes for me when I am out in public. I introduce myself and share what I do. I get so excited I end up giggling and before you know it the mom to be is in stitches and blushing over the compliments from this crazy lady in front of her lol.
This next mom to be I have been connecting with for the better part of a year now and knew that when she announced that she was expecting her 3rd I could not wait to photograph her. She exhumes this regal, calm and confidant mama that we all wish we could pull off as well as she does. Don’t get me wrong, she is stern and takes control with her littles when needed but her aura is captivating.
Meet Sahiya! She is one of our communities local Bloggers, Brand Repper and busy mom of 2. She came into the studio a few months ago for me to capture her last baby belly. You can follow her along on Instagram over at: @allthatshedreamed with her adventures as a mom, wife and supporting all things local!
Clean, simple and elegant transitions was the vision for her session. She was totally comfortable here and with subtle moves to guide her from one frame to another her shoot was flawless. We chatted, laughed, reflected and dreamed together during these fleeting moments in time. Thank you Sahiya for joining us in studio to capture this milestone in your life for you and your family to treasure. We can’t wait to see you back in the near future!
Sidenote…mamas I hear you.. You have shared with me some hard things. Some sad things and some growing things lately. I hear you.
Motherhood is a beautiful thing. However in the same breath, motherhood is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Postpartum takes a toll on you. You don’t feel like yourself and don’t know why. It is normal, it is SO common and it is OK to reach out and ask for help and support. This doesn’t make you any less strong, any less a “good mom” or wife. Having been there myself I know what you are going through. Please know that if you needed an extra ear to vent to, reach out to, or just simple be around. I am here for you too!
You got this…whether you feel like you do or not. Trust me…you got this.
