Toronto Maternity Photography – The Importance of Doing A Maternity Session

December 22, 2021

Pregnancy is a wonderful thing. A lot of people look forward to the day they will have kids. However, the experience in itself can be extremely divisive. While you get to enjoy the luxurious locks, glowing skin, and most importantly, the cute baby bump that comes with your pregnancy, you also have to deal with swollen legs, weird cravings, and those awful mood swings.

Yet, it is a unique experience of your life that deserves to be captured. Unfortunately, despite the glowing skin, most pregnant women don’t feel that they’re looking their best during while they’re pregnant. This can lead to them not wanting to take any pictures at all. 

So if you feel that you aren’t rocking that maternity look you see on Instagram, it may be a good idea to consider getting a maternity shoot. Here’s why. 

  1. Your Baby Bump Isn’t Going to Last Forever

One of the weirdest things to accompany a pregnancy is the baby bump. While you enjoy looking at yourself in the mirror, admiring the new life growing inside your cute baby bump, it can also make you extremely tired and irritable, and make you wish the 9 months were over as soon as possible. However, you are going to miss your baby bump once the baby is in your arms. And even if you have multiple babies through your lifetime, the amount of time you sport a baby bump will be very limited. 

There will be times when your little one is learning to crawl and you’ll absentmindedly rub your belly, only to notice the bump isn’t there anymore. While there is no way to preserve the baby bump, and you realistically wouldn’t even want to have it for a long period, having some beautiful photos taken during this time will help curb the nostalgia you may feel for your baby bump later in life.

  1. A Professional Maternity Photographer Would Capture Better Photos

You may wonder why you need to hire a maternity photographer when you can just take high quality pictures on your phone. However, having a good camera doesn’t necessarily translate to good pictures – especially when you’re pregnant. You may feel insecure about your bump or any side effects that have occurred during the pregnancy that may make you want to not take any pictures at all. 

A maternity photographer would understand that. They have likely performed a number of maternity shoots with a lot of different types of people. Therefore, they will understand how to respect your insecurities while also taking beautiful pictures that you’ll cherish forever.

  1. Souvenirs From Your Pregnancy

Here’s the harsh reality: From the second you hold your newborn baby in your arms, the time will start to fly. One second you’ll be learning the proper technique to nurse your baby, and the next second they’ll be taking off to college. As your baby grows older, there will be times when you will miss the time they were always with you; how they were just a tiny human being growing inside you and now they’re a whole person of their own. 

During these times, you can look at these little souvenirs from your pregnancy and reminisce about that time. You can also share these with your kids when they’re older to share a time of their life that they aren’t aware of. 

If you’re thinking about getting a maternity photoshoot, consider visiting Toronto Maternity Photography. We understand the importance of capturing this magical time in your life and will ensure that you get the best pictures to cherish for a lifetime.

It is highly recommended to make a tentative maternity booking around weeks 32-36 and at least 3-4 months in advance of your due date. Once your baby is born, you can contact me and we will arrange a suitable time and day for your session.  If your little one has already arrived, don’t worry, you’re not too late! Please contact me as soon as possible and I can try to schedule you in.
