Melbourne maternity photography session - Sarah ' Our Life In Melbourne'
It was such a joy for me to do a maternity session with the stunning Sarah from Our Life In Melbourne recently.
I have been so excited to share this session for two reasons -
The first, is that Sarah’s motherhood story is inspiring
Sarah made the decision last year to become a solo mum by choice via IVF. If you're not already, I highly recommend going and checking her out on instagram and following along on her incredible and unique journey into motherhood.
Sarah’s outlook for her maternity photography session with me was all about creating some beautiful memories as she prepares to meet her baby- it was such an honour to be able to work together to capture that
Secondly, I wanted to show you that if you are either a single mum or have a camera shy partner that doesn’t want to be involved in a photoshoot, that you still have a beautiful maternity session on your own.
I know there is something special about maternity photos for an expecting mama, and sometimes your partner might not understand why it is so important for you. It’s so different when you’ve been carrying your child for 9 months to explain in words why maternity photos are so meaningful and how much you will miss that feeling once your baby is in your arms (even if you have wished parts of it away!). Or perhaps it’s simply that your partner is camera shy and cannot be convinced into a photoshoot (if that’s the case, I highly recommend you have a read of this blog post, here - “how to convince your husband to have family photos done…when it’s his actual worst nightmare” )
Whatever the reason, just because your partner doesn’t prioritise having maternity photos taken, doesn’t mean you should miss out!
You can still have an incredibly beautiful and meaningful maternity session if you do it on your own - those very first moments of bonding with your baby, before he/she even enters the world are so precious, and I would love to be able to document them for you.
