Pregnant? A whole new list of firsts. Some of the Joys of Pregnancy.

Hey there, first-time mama-to-be! Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of pregnancy, where your emotions are on a constant rollercoaster ride, and your body is hosting the ultimate house party for one tiny VIP guest. As you embark on this miraculous journey, get ready for a whirlwind of hilarious mishaps, heartwarming moments, and a newfound appreciation for maternity photography.

Let’s start with the "firsts." Remember that first positive pregnancy test? Yeah, the one where you stared at the stick for what felt like an eternity, questioning whether you were seeing things or if there really was a faint line forming? Congratulations! You’re officially on the road to parenthood, where sleep becomes a luxury, and the phrase "Are you sure it’s not twins?" becomes a regular part of your vocabulary.

But oh, the joys of pregnancy brain! You know, that phenomenon where you walk into a room and forget why you’re there, or you spend 10 minutes searching for your phone only to realise it’s in your hand. Pregnancy brain is like having a personal comedy show running 24/7. I actually turned up at the vets in Nottinghm without my dog when I went to get his routine jabs. 

Now, let’s talk about those little kicks and hiccups. There’s something incredibly magical about feeling your baby’s first movements. From those gentle flutters to the full-blown karate kicks that wake you up in the middle of the night, each sensation reminds you that there’s a tiny human growing inside you, and suddenly, you’re filled with a love you never knew existed.

But as the due date approaches, you might find yourself thinking that you will miss that bump. Sure, you’ll be thrilled to finally meet your little one, but there’s something bittersweet about saying goodbye to the round belly that’s been your constant companion for the past nine months. It’s like saying farewell to your own personal sidekick – one who’s been with you through every craving, every late-night bathroom trip, and every moment of joy and anticipation.

And that’s where maternity photography comes in. Sure, you might feel like a bloated whale some days (thanks, pregnancy hormones), but trust me when I say that capturing this momentous time in your life is worth it. Whether you opt for a cosy indoor shoot or a picturesque outdoor session, maternity photoshoots are a chance to celebrate your journey to motherhood and create memories that you’ll cherish forever. Sure your bump photography that you take on your phone will be a lovely reminder. But, a professional maternity photoshoot in the Nottingham studio will blow you away and give you something that you will treasure forever.
