I wasn’t completely sure that I wanted to take maternity photos this time around. No real reason why, other than I just hadn’t given it much thought. With Ems, I had the time to focus on these things in great detail but with baby boy, the days are flying by and I catch myself forgetting some of these little details. I am carrying baby boy very differently than I carried Ems and so capturing that alone I figured could be a nice keepsake down the road. I also personally felt as the second child in my family that the first child got a tad bit more focus than the second… not pointing any fingers at anybody specifically but I’m pretty sure it took about 4 years of nagging, starting at the age of 12 to convince someone close in my life to FINALLY finish my baby book… so I really didn’t want to do that for him. That being said, I still wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do photo wise until I went to book our newborn session with a local photographer Austin Kyle Photography. In speaking with her, I decided I would completely regret it if I didn’t do both a maternity and newborn session and quickly made the leap! And boy, (pun intended) am I so glad that I did!
