Love yourself first darling 

By now you all know that I have LOVED being pregnant {besides that bedrest nonsense} and I don’t know why but I have never felt sexier as a woman. I don’t know if it’s being a single mom, knowing my body is allowed to be this fat, or just that I am doing something so incredibly amazing by growing the human I will love more than anything all on my own. I am a strong ,independent, pregnant woman and I don’t need no man!

But seriously, ladies…. I know maternity photography can be pricey but I can not urge women enough to document your pregnancy! Whether it be an iPhone photo or in with a professional camera, do it! We are doing an amazing thing! Not everyone can get pregnant and who knows, one day you may not be able to do it again! That’s how it is for me. I was told my chances of having kids was slim to none and look at me now! I’m taking every single moment of being pregnancy and loving on it like it were the last time because heck, it could be!

With that being said, I have to give a shoutout to one of my favorite photographers out there, besides my sister lily of course, Callie Beale. Man, oh man does this lady know how to make me feel sexy! When I first talked to her about maternity pictures and we started talking about maternity boudoir I was TERRIFIED! You know how they say the camera adds 10 pounds?! Well, what about camera weight plus baby weight?! She knew exactly how to pose me so I would feel and look beautiful and I am so thankful for that. Now, I am not saying I was completely comfortable the whole time… who could be?! Laying on a cold floor ass naked can’t be comfortable for anyone but I will say this is one time I was particularly happy I am not modest!

Ladies! I can’t preach it enough! Love your body, all of its curves and stretch marks because you never know when or if you could experience this again!
Here are some of my fave pics from our two shoots! Hopefully they give you a little confidence and inspiration to step out of your comfort level and try something new!

xoxo, Kate
