Maternity boudoir sessions are always beautiful, but this session by Tianna of Yours Truly Portraiture stood out to us as something extra special. Of course, the images are lovely. But once you read Sara’s story, you’ll see why we fell in love with her session immediately.
Our bodies are ALWAYS changing. Whether it be the freshmen fifteen or pregnancy. I was so honored to be able to capture this beautiful time for Sara. I honestly believe women are at their most attractive when they are carrying life!
Sara is a girl not unfamiliar with insecurities (are any of us?). When we were chatting about her newborn session I asked about how she was feeling and immediately suggested that she do a maternity boudoir session. Having dealt with being overweight when she was younger she was feeling really down having put on that NECESSARY weight with expecting her first child. I was so excited at the opportunity to show Sara how beautiful she was. Despite being so nervous and rattling off a list of things she was insecure about, Sara LOVES these photos. I would be lying if I said she still didn't deal with that pang of insecurity when she looks in the mirror her body not the size it once was but she has thanked me from the moon and back about how this experience and her collection of photos has changed her view of her pregnant form. What is more beautiful in a woman than the ability to make more beauty?
Thank you Tianna for your kind, encouraging words. We hope that they touch every reader, reminding us all of our inherent beauty. We also want to thank Sara for sharing her story with us. We hope you find joy in these images for many years to come.
