There is nothing more amazing than the bond between a mother and an unborn child. Now anyone who knows me will tell you that being pregnant was certainly not my favourite phase of life but even with all my aches and pains, nothing gave me more joy than to spend time talking and singing to my unborn son, feeling him kick and knowing that I was doing my part to bring a brand new human being into the world. I love maternity photography because I get to capture a very special and joyous moment in a woman's life - it is the beginning of a life long relationship and an unbreakable bond with her child. For me, and I'm sure for a lot of other new mothers, carrying and nurturing my son was the first time I truly understood the meaning of unconditional love. I don't get to shoot as many sessions as I would like here in Nigeria due to social norms but I am certainly grateful when I get an opportunity to bear witness to such a beautiful moment in my client's life.
For the sake of privacy, let's call this bumpalicious mama Mrs A - all you need to know is that she's gorgeous (on the inside and out), she could still fit into a size 10 dress (UK not US) even when she was pregnant (so jealous!!!) and she rocked that bump (love!!!). Hope you enjoy the images. To see the full shoot, be sure to check out the slideshow at the bottom of the post - it's one of those times that the shoot, theme and song all came together perfectly to create a deliciously beautiful story.
