“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
– Anne Christian Buchanan
Growing another human inside your body is magical, more difficult to some, but mostly magical. Just think about it for a second. During pregnancy, if the mother suffers organ damage, the baby in the womb sends stem cells to repair the damaged organ. And even after the baby is born, it is like your own heart outside your body.
I am fascinated by that innate connection, the womanhood and what it means for each woman to experience pregnancy. This wonderful video explains what my sessions are about – they are about you and getting in touch with yourself and your wonderful journey to become a parent.
Congratulations to Bec, Al and their happy family on the arrival of their beautiful baby boy! I know the significance of the dress colour choice for the session as it often predicts the baby sex, whether the couple know what they are expecting or whether it is a surprise and the colour is chosen subconsciously.
Congratulations once again!!! So thrilled for you and your beautiful family!
To be honest, I always feel a little nervous before I release a gallery to a client. I worry if they will love it as much as I do. I get nervous about the moments I’ve captured even if I know I did my absolute best – would they love the angles I’ve picked? Will they be happy with themselves in the pictures we created?
Photographer is an absolute other breed of client 🙂 I know this with myself – we are overly critical (of ourselves), yet we don’t want to sound like we are complaining too much. We may know all our best sides and angles yet we struggle to compose yourself during the session. Or you think you do. In reality, we just get extremely shy and uncomfortable being on the other side of the camera. Perhaps, because it is a bit like losing a security blanket. Usually, including children in the session makes it a little easier as paradox as it may sound. Bec’s session, however, didn’t include any children… almost… you see, Bec of Bec Stewart Photography are expecting baby #4!!!
Before I met and saw them together I was sincerely wondering how they do it. Because I have only 2 and it can get quite busy! Now all of it makes perfect sense! These two are so fun and loving together, I am totally not surprised they are having another baby! They got so lost in each other in the first half of our shoot which is always a great sign especially when you incorporate Beloved Technique with maternity!
Congratulations Bec and Al! This baby could not have chosen a better family to be born into! And Bec, I won’t get tired repeating it – you look absolutely stunning!!!
