Tanya ➳ Maternity photoshoot / by Abigail Smith

“A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years, and in your heart until the day you die.” -Mary Mason

The irony of pregnancy: 9 Months begins to feel like a life sentence when you're pregnant and sometimes you just can't wait for it to all be over, but once baby is born you feel a tinge of loss. No longer feeling the baby's kicks and movements, you subconsciously put your hand to your tummy and remember that baby is no longer there and feel like it all passed far too quickly! While you might not feel like you're at your absolute best you will surely regret later not having photos of your precious little bump and miss out on an opportunity to show your children one day how celebrated and loved they were even before they were born. 

We had lots of fun documenting Tanya's pregnancy, Mieke loved chatting to her little sister and told her how she just can't wait until she's born, such a cute and willing little model! I can't wait to document little Amorey's newborn photos.
