How underwater maternity photos helped me enjoy my pregnant body

Why underwater maternity photos? Because any time I have my picture taken my brain is all, “Have my arms always been this… weird!? Why are my hands so flappy? Is THIS what my smile feels like? HOW DO LEGS WORK!???” Amplify those body issues by, well, two when you’re pregnant and it can feel even MORE awkward. But under the water, all of that changes! And the result is all this mermaid awesomeness…

A spring-themed maternity photo session in a greenhouse

Nicole and George were ready to shoot their maternity photos to celebrate the impending arrival of their first child, but were stuck: they live in Massachusetts, and at the time of the session it was still cold outside.

The photos are a sweet capture of the excitement of new life — complete with flowers to boot!
