Phoenix, Arizona – Maternity Session, Aldava Family

  This session holds a special place in my heart because it is of my baby sister and brother in law. Here they are pregnant with their first baby! They’ve been married for over 12 years and thoroughly enjoyed traveling the world and dedicating more time to ministry work but they finally decided it was time.  They surprised us with the news on a beach family vacation, we were all shocked but absolutely thrilled! We wanted and needed a new baby in the family! As a mama of four, I was delighted for my sister.  I knew it would be a complete change from the life she knew before but I also knew she was about to begin one of the most beautiful chapters of a woman’s life.  I look at these images and I wish so much I had images like these of me and my husband with each of our children. Mama’s listen to me.  You cannot rewind time!  I know you know that but in the hustle and bustle of life, especially when you are pregnant, swollen, tired, busy preparing and making decisions, and even caring for other children, you may forget and then before you know it your precious bundle is here and your photography did not get done.  The thing I know for sure is, you will never regret documenting this special time in your life.  These captured moments are not just for you.  Your children will love seeing photos of themselves in mommy’s belly too. Capturing this time will guarantee special moments in the future where you can cuddle up on the couch and flip through the photo album or watch a slideshow of your child’s very beginning. As pregnant women, working women, mothers and caretakers, we so frequently forget to take care of ourselves…to pause for a moment and really see how incredible our journey is.  But it is an amazing journey and sadly it comes to an end as it must.  Capture your journey with something better than a cellphone selfie, see how beautiful and amazing you truly are! One day you will look back with nostalgia at the glow of your skin, the bulge of your belly, and the light of true love in your eyes and be so happy you invested in you and your families memories.  Feel free to email me to inquire about your session. Here we are capturing a bit of their maternity session in the beautiful Arizona desert and light.
