Maternity Shoot

Meet Jo

Jo is an objectively attractive woman, and like most women , she also had some insecurities with her body.  She wouldn't mind showing off her "legs for days" , but tight dresses and crop tops, forget it! 

During her pregnancy she would send me old photos of herself captioned , I used to be so pretty!  " May, you know I have always been insecure with my body and the fact that I have added an extra 30 pounds, it didn’t make me feel any better."  She made it clear that she wasn’t letting herself go rather her priorities have changed.  Seven months into her pregancy, I received this text message" May, I don't reconize the girl in the mirror anymore."   My heart shattered reading that because I only wish she could see what I saw through my eyes.  That she was still that beautiful and radiant  person that I met 18 years ago. So through my eyes and lens , we were able to capture this. 

Surprisingly, she found more reasons to love her body and allowed me to share her photos!
