As often as I get a chance to, I use my camera to celebrate the beauty of pregnancy.
There’s something special about creating these images, even when the model elects to pose in a more modest manner, as is certainly her right to do. I speak with many women who seem ashamed of they way they look when they’re pregnant, when in fact they should be PROUD. Ladies I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the mirror that you look at; the one you see yourself in daily – is lying to you. You are far more beautiful than what it shows to you.
I’m happy to say my camera and I have been a part of this woman’s life for several years. I photographed her wedding, both of her pregnancies, and her and her children several other times as well. I consider her a close friend.
