“After gaining nearly 50 pounds during my first pregnancy…”

“After gaining nearly 50 pounds during my first pregnancy, I had my son, and even years later; I kept a lot of the extra weight on. I could have shied away from photos during this time, but I made a very conscious effort NOT to do so. I knew there would be angles that would make me cringe. I knew I wasn’t completely happy with the way I looked, but I wanted to be part of this magical time with my young child. To be in pictures with him during the early part of his life, so that he could have those moments to look back on, as he got older. And surprisingly, looking at some of those pictures now, I can see a sparkle in my eye as I truly enjoyed a candid moment with my child. I’m so glad I didn’t back away from having those moments captured.”
