Claire, 40 weeks pregnant

A few Saturdays ago we went to meet the lovely Claire at her local park in Didsbury for a maternity photo shoot. It was a gorgeous evening and the light was perfect, the sun just ever-so slightly peeping through the trees. You could feel the crispness in the air and the beginnings of Autumn were already visible.

Claire was an absolute natural throughout the shoot. She joked that she felt as though she was on a catalogue modelling session, but looking at these photographs she could easily have been doing just that! Pregnancy is not the easiest of times for a woman (nor a spouse come to think of it). Despite how you may look physically, generally you don’t feel your best and even though there is a little miracle growing inside of you, you often feel like crawling in a hole for some well earned rest. I have been asking myself the question recently…when does the ‘blooming’ stage of pregnancy happen?? I feel like I have spent the majority of my current pregnancy looking washed out and feeling exhausted! However, Claire here defies all odds and looks the absolute image of perfection at 40 whole weeks pregnant!
I hope she is as happy with the finished images as we are and we wish both her and her husband Patrick…and their new baby bundle Beatrix all the luck and love on their new adventure together as a family!

Maternity photographs are a really special way of capturing what is such a sacred time in a woman’s life. A life growing inside of you! That 40 weeks comes and goes so quickly and is soon forgotten once baby arrives but a keepsake of that ‘time’ can be something you can hold on to forever and share with your children as they get older.
