The 9 month time frame as a mother prepares for the arrival of her sweet baby is a beautiful time. Looking past all the aches and pains that can come with pregnancy a life is growing with in you. I can remember longing for those 9 months and personally I love being pregnant and cherish those months. Especially all the kicks and movements that I feel from my little one. It was actually a photograph that my father took of my mom and I when she was pregnant with my brother that inspired my desire to do maternity photography. (see that picture here) There is such beauty in the female body when she is carrying life inside her womb.
