Caroline’s Folly Beach Maternity Session

filed in

Every time I photograph a maternity session for a couple having their first baby, it always takes me back to having my first baby. There is something about it that you can’t quite describe. There are so many emotions that revolve around the first, the two loudest emotions for me were excitement and fear. I was nervous about so many things; what having a baby would be like, what my new mom life would be like, whether I was ready. Let me just tell you, if you are feeling that way too, it’s normal and it will all be ok. You are going to be amazing. And you are in for an unconditional love you will never be able to explain but feel so deeply.
