TAKE NOTE: THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY. Beautiful, powerful, maternal nudity.
The transformation toward motherhood starts off so innocently, doesn't it? At first, there are very few outward signs of what is brewing within... a bit of nausea, tender breasts and the ability to sleep practically anywhere. But in a few short months the changes become obvious and continue as your body blooms to a beautiful fullness. The growing of a baby is nothing short of a superpower that should be admire and revered!
This second time mom-to-be is simply stunning and I am so very honoured that she chose me to help celebrate and commemorate her body in bloom. Nikki specifically requested fine art-styled Black & White nudes and as a photographer, I leapt at the opportunity.
Although I adore Black & White images, especially dramatically lit images, Nikki's skin tone is so
lovely that I had to include some with colour.
Nikki was a natural in front of the lens. Although pregnancy can be a time of great physical and emotional strain, this mama embraced her form and allowed me to gently pose her in flattering ways. She will now have these images forever to look back on in awe and amazement!
I have been blessed with the gift of growing two babies inside me. I actually really loved being pregnant. I remember the exact moments with each babe, the exact place I was in when I first felt their flutter deep down inside me. As those movements grew in strength and frequency I was reassured... I could do this... I was built to do this! I was most proud of my maternal shape...the curves, the girth, the knowledge that I was carrying a little human, tucked away under my heart, that was dependant on me for its every need.
You are so ready for this next leap Nikki. I absolutely loved getting to know you and your soon-to-grow family. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing this session, editing this session and then getting to see your reaction and your selections at your in-person viewing appointment. I am glad too, that I was able to deliver your gorgeous prints in time for you and your family to linger over and enjoy before baby arrives! You are beautiful and strong and your body and baby are ready to begin the final journey.
Thank you for trusting me with these special moments and I wish you a 'calm as possible' birthing experience ;)
