One nice thing about being a woman is that you get to carry babies. The experience of being “with child” varies greatly. Sensations can shift from feeling enormously hungry and sick to radiant and sacred and back to just plain enormous and exhausted. However you feel during your pregnancy, it is a unique and important time to document. I have had many women say to me how they regret not having captured their pregnancy in a formal portrait. Conversely, the women I know who have photos of themselves pregnant all hang them proudly in their bedrooms.
