Before and after maternity pictures: the miracle in the making
Despite all the struggles women go through while being pregnant, the magic and the beauty of pregnancy is definitely worth capturing. It’s the time when you and your child are closer than ever. It’s the time when no one knows your baby, but you. Your body, that’s powerful enough to create another human, is a true miracle you want to remember.
The before and after photo shoots really touch people’s hearts as they reflect on the inner beauty of the pregnancy, the essential purpose of it and the change that happens to a woman once she becomes a mother to her tiny vulnerable baby. Not only the changes in her appearance a good photographer is able to depict on the photos but mainly the changes in her eyes, in the way she holds on to her baby and the love to her child her entire body is shining with.
Moreover, as newborns grow quickly and their tiny features change every single day, you can’t miss the opportunity to take newborn shots of him to imprint the way your child looks while being a few days or weeks old.
When the entire family is involved (the partner and the older kids), the difference in the dynamics of the growing family before the baby is born and after also do not remain invisible to the eyes and the camera of a skillful maternity or family photographer.
The simpler the pictures are, the more they concentrate on the spirit and the love the pregnancy and the birth of a child are related to.
Here’re a few examples of quite simple, yet immensely beautiful and tender before and after maternity pictures.
