My Maternity Photographs | Ogden, Utah Photographer
Taking maternity photographs for others is something that I absolutely love doing, but it took me until 39 weeks and 3 days to take some of my own! Many women experience feeling insecure as their body changes over the course of pregnancy, and I was definitely one of them. I figured that even if these photographs are never shown to anyone, ever, I would be happy in the future that I had them, especially to be able to show my daughter later. If any women reading this is feeling insecure about herself and it's preventing her from being photographed at any significant stage of life, I hope that she is encouraged to realize the importance of documenting her life, for herself and for her family.
So I grabbed my husband and my camera, and we went to the botanical gardens right up the street! He's not a photographer himself, but he is a very quick learner and I handed him my camera, settings set, and told him where to point. He caught on easily and I ended up with some shots that I love.
