baby bump love fest! aka maternity photos

maternity photos // sarah sherman samuel // max and friendsmaternity photos // sarah sherman samuel // max and friendsI hope you guys are prepared for a whole lotta baby bump because I had the hardest time narrowing down options from such a unique batch of images that Katherine & Luke sent over from our shoot together. When I was introduced to their work, I instantly fell in love with their style and knew it would be a perfect match with mine, so I couldn’t wait to see what we could cook up together. When they came to our house to shoot they also couldn’t have been any sweeter to work with so it was a major win all around. I couldn’t think of a better way to document our little growing family.

So if you are on the fence at all, I say do it! Growing a baby is a beautiful, terrifying, and crazy business that goes by so fast and we will surely cherish these captured moments.

More photos and pregnancy talk after the jump!

I know, I have heard some ladies gush about loving being pregnant (I also kind of want to slap those ladies and make them tell me all their secrets ;) ) but I am not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing miracle and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to be pregnant but the process is tough, I won’t lie. One beautiful thing is that I now see my body in a different light, I see it doing something it is made to do, even if I never knew if it would, and I definitely feel more comfortable in my own skin while pregnant. I know that looking back on these photos I will do so with so much love and the thing I will remember the most will be those magic fleeting moments of excitement and wonder, when everything felt just right… and then, maybe then, I’ll miss it.
