I’m currently 26 weeks pregnant with my first baby and it’s all been such a surreal experience. In the next 14 weeks we get to meet this little person that the love of my life and I have created.
I was offered the opportunity to shoot my maternity images “boudoir style” at the Le Chatelat Boutique Guest House in the Presidential Suite with Keara from She Wolf Photography. I decided that the perfect debut for this beautiful gallery would be through my blog.
Celebrating my ever changing body
I’ve come to the stage in this pregnancy where I feel like I’m growing larger by the day. I must say that I think this baby has treated me well and that I’ve had a blissful experience being the incubator to my forever love, who is currently living and growing inside of me.
I felt especially honoured to be invited to this shoot to document this monumentus time in my life. What felt like a celebration of my journey into motherhood and a reminder to celebrate this stage of creation before we bring our little one earthside.
Being photographed in the nude
In recent years I’ve learnt to love my body for all that it is and all that it does for me. I was very self concious about my appearance growing up but all that is ancient history now.
I appreciated the photographer’s professionalism and overall celebration of me as a soon-to-be mom. I felt like an absolute goddess during the shoot and I’m very proud of the final images showing me bare and beautiful.
Embracing the bump
I’ve been rocking crop tops and exposing this glowing bump since the beginning. I’ve received mixed responses about my fashion choices but people have always had something to say.
I’m so proud of this journey and regardless of the unsolicited comments, whether negative or positive, I know what my purpose is and I feel so much gratitude for the friends and family who have supported me with positive vibrations.
