Kristy Powell, Birth Photographer & Doula
This was a belly session for a 38-week pregnant mama (she had her babe three days later!!). I knew she wanted an intimate maternity session and I was elated to photograph that for her. As a photographer, I most love bodies, angles, and intimacy — this was the first session I felt like I got to explore all three. It was such a treat! I was so thrilled to have captured what I know to be these final stages of first-time parents to be: eagerly anticipatory, yet also indulgent in the final moments of being a family of two. I let mom and dad-to-be interact on the bed while I captured photos of the two of them and it felt like a very sacred space. It was a really lovely experience.
