Why boudoir pregnancy photos? I believe there is a special beauty, glow and sensuality about a pregnant mama that she NEEDS to SEE and REMEMBER long after pregnancy is over.
It's also true that too often, while in the midst of it all, mamas-to-be to be may actually feel anything BUT sexy and sensuous, or beautiful. So for those looking to recapture their sense of self and sensuality: what at beautiful GIFT to be able to give them, seeing in them their beauty that they may not realize, and photographing it for them as a reminder in this time that they are absolutely gorgeous and phenomenally sexy!
Because of this, because I want to show pregnant moms they still got IT, I have been photographing a ton of Brooklyn maternity boudoir photo shoots as of late. Well, Manhattan maternity boudoir and Long Island, too, to be fair.
One such mama near and dear to my heart? Ally. The awesome thing about photographing Ally that I LOVED oh so much (before I even met her!) is that her doting, loving partner reached out to me to book this pregnancy boudoir shoot for her. I find it incredibly sexy for a dad-to-be to want to pamper and care for the mom-to-be, and even more so when he wants her to have a luxurious boudoir experience to photograph this gorgeous time in her life.
And then, I met Ally. Gorgeous, fun, down to earth and super sexy, we hit it off right away. Our boudoir maternity session (in a super fun and colorful Brooklyn NY hotel) was super laid back, and time literally FLEW as we played with fun lashes, different outfits and poses.
Here is what she had to say about it all:
What were your initial thoughts about getting boudoir pregnancy photos of yourself done, and why did you ultimately want to do one?
"I had really wanted to do a boudoir pregnancy shoot even before I became pregnant, because I wanted to be able to capture the beauty of pregnancy and to capture the experience. Once I actually became pregnant, it became a lot harder for me to think of myself (and pregnancy) that way. Fortunately, I'd told my partner how much I thought it would be special and beautiful before I started feeling this way. Once I spoke with Andreea on the phone for the first time, she really helped me feel how fun and special this time is, and I recaptured that desire to have this experience."
