A Peek at Melissa’s Maternity Portrait – RI Maternity Photography

Nine months may seem like a long time when you are pregnant, but it really is a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things.  You may be a little exhausted, maybe sick to your stomach at times, but once you feel that little flutter of movement it is all worth it!  I don’t think I have to tell anyone how amazing it is to have a life grow inside of you.  Instead I will remind everyone to do something special to remember this time in thier lives.  I was very reluctant to have pictures taken of myself when I was pregnant with my second child, but I did them.  The pictures I have of my daughter, Zoe, and my pregnant self are now so special to me.  At the time I was uncomfortable and ready to pop.  I don’t see that when I look at the pictures now.  They bring me back to a time filled with excitement and anticipation to finally meet the little guy who would complete our family.

Melissa on the other hand has always wanted to do maternity pictures.  I was happy to be the one who got to take them for her!  She is expecting a little boy in September.  In an email she told me ” Oh and I’m thrilled he’s a boy! I wanted a boy and still get teary every time I think about him! I’m thrilled I get to be his mom!”
