Five reasons to invest in your Chandler AZ Maternity Photography Session


December 15, 2020

Are you considering a maternity photography session in or around Chandler, AZ? Are you unsure whether to invest the time and money? Congratulations on your pregnancy! Whether a maternity session is right for you and your personal needs, I believe that my blog post “Five reasons to invest in your Chandler, AZ maternity photography session” may be a helpful tool with your decision-making.

Pregnancy may not be a phase of your life you enjoy, especially in the last few months. As your body adapts to the growing baby inside of you, you may find it challenging watching your body change so much. Not being able to embrace those changes makes it all too easy to forget just how miraculous and incredible pregnancy really is. A maternity photo session allows you to focus on the new life your body is working so hard to create, instead of the way you look, and can remind you of the excitement and joy that comes with bringing your child into the world.

I believe that photographs are more than a piece of paper. They are a connection to our past and a gift to our future. They are a representation of all the mind forgets and what the heart will always remember.  In the months and years to come, as you focus on raising your precious child, you may forget what it felt like to be eagerly awaiting his or her arrival. Maternity photos can serve as a reminder of those feelings in the years to come.

Are you expecting a boy or a girl? A professional maternity session can be a fun way to announce either the sex or the name of your child—or even both! There are so many fun and creative ways to announce your little one’s name or sex to the world with photos.  I recommend scrolling through Pinterest for ideas. Think about the interests or hobbies you and your partner share as inspiration for telling the world your exciting news. Speaking of partner…one of the amazing things about maternity sessions is to capture the interactions between couples as they celebrate the new life they’ve created. Your maternity photo shoot gives you and your partner a chance to reflect on the life you’ve built together and how much has changed in your relationship since the beginning.

You can never have too many photos of your family, right?! Life passes by in a hurry, and we often forget more than we remember. Whether this is your first child or your fourth, your pregnancy is a great time to get some family photos with not just you and your partner, but your other children (and fur children) as well. How sweet would it be to document a sibling’s anticipation of meeting his or her new sister or brother?

Are you not feeling the idea of an outdoor session? The good news is that there is no need to worry about the weather indoors. In-home sessions tend to be more intimate than outdoor sessions and offers many more options for the pregnant mom’s comfort. Plus, if booked in combination with a newborn session, it allows us to create a storyline from bump to baby showcasing the same unique setting – your home!

      Thanks, Tiffany. I think this woman is just absolutely stunning which made it all too easy to get these great shots. My hope is to receive more inquiries for in-home maternity sessions versus booking an outdoor shoot. I think it’s much more personal and unique to be including one’s home setting.
