Here at Pure 7 Studios it’s always exciting to photograph a mother to be and her baby. It’s no secret that pregnancy (despite all its discomforts, surprises and sicknesses) is a wonderful thing. New fears and excitement set in when you’re expecting. Whether it’s your first or a new addition, each and every pregnancy is different. Women and their families are evolving constantly as the world around us changes. Perhaps the only thing one can count on being the same pregnancy to pregnancy is getting the beautiful pregnancy glow.
Today’s world focuses a lot on beauty and the way we should look. Unfortunately it is often a skewed, narrow, and unattainable beauty not even actresses and models can live up to. Even though we all know this, it is still very easy as a woman to get caught up in what we see in the magazines. When we do get away from the media, we start comparing ourselves to our friends. It’s sad all talking beauty now has a negative affect on the way we view ourselves. That is unless you’re a stunning and very pregnant Prudence Lo.
We met Prudence in Watercolor just over a year ago to shoot a sunset maternity session. What a wonderful evening we had preserving a moment in time from when she was oh so happy for the baby adventure to begin. She carried herself with such confidence and it really shows in her maternity photos. While some hide their belly and try not to be seen or photographed pregnant, Prudence wanted to remember her pregnancy and honor her almost little one. With no sway from the world’s negativity Prudence proudly posed so we could capture this special time in her life.
