Mama Love 2019 - Who is your photographer, and why is she making you put on a dress?

As someone who is not a mom, people have wondered why in all heck do I think that the most important sessions I do every year are my Mama Love sessions. Well I can say one thing that helps me to understand the importance of these photos is that I am a woman. And as a woman I completely understand why almost every woman I come in contact with, whether she is in her 20s, 50s or in between, is weary or downright shaking in her boots before stepping in front of the camera.

Beautiful Maternity Photos in the Summer | Montreal Photographer

I was so so happy to be able to capture this beautiful moment in this gorgeous mama's life.

Even though she wasn't actually sure that Maternity photos were what she wanted in the first place. She was very skeptical of the session, and I am finding more and more Mamas feeling the same way. I couldn't possibly imagine what pregnancy is like for the ladies I work with, but I do know how women think. 

And I get it:
