Expecting Cooper in a few hours! {Maternity Photography for St Peters}

In celebration of baby Cooper’s arrival in a few hours, I thought I’d take a few minutes to share these beautiful maternity portraits from their session last month.

This gorgeous mom is a friend of mine whom I met at exercise class.  We were all thrilled when they got pregnant and have enjoyed continuing our workouts throughout her pregnancy!

I love showcasing the beauty of a growing pregnant belly. We photographed this session in the studio in both casual clothes, wraps and fabrics. One of my favorite parts of the session was working with their older boy.  He was so well-behaved and really such a cutie.   I let him take MY picture and he did a pretty good job.  (I should post that too – maybe on Facebook).  He is so adorable, I’m sure he’ll make a terrific big brother.

A maternity session is not something that everyone wants to do, but I would like to insert a quick comment.  I usually hear “I wish I had done maternity pictures” and I never, ever hear “I wish I hadn’t”.  Just like the fleeting newborn days, pregnancy only lasts a short time (yes, I do remember that at times it feels like it’s forever, LOL).  It’s a time that you probably want documented and a safe, private portrait session with a trained photographer is a wonderful way to beautifully capture this very special time.

It’s your choice what you wear and how much belly shows in your portraits.  Your 8th month is an ideal time to photograph your growing belly.  Give Karen a call today if you are pregnant and considering a maternity photo shoot.  636-947-5956

Thanks again, Becca for trusting me to photographing your beautiful self (and family).  I cannot wait to meet Cooper.  You are in my thoughts and prayers today!!!
