Kayla | Mantua Poppies Maternity Session | Truly Photography
I’m getting SO excited to meet this little lady of ours. Because I didn’t take very many pictures with my last pregnancy (I literally have 3 from the whole time I was pregnant), I’ve probably over done it on maternity pictures this time, but I’m so glad. When the Mantua Poppies bloomed I decided I wanted a Mantua Poppies Maternity Session. My photographer friend, Desiree, and I met up in Mantua to experience the stunning beauty of the Mantua Poppies. HOLY COW. They are so stunning. The whole campground is stunning without the poppies, but when you add those in, it’s just beyond breathtaking. Although Mantua is about 2 hours away from my house this may be my new favorite location. I just loved shooting there. The light and the greens were breathtaking.
I wore a dress I had from Piper and Scoot that had a nice flow to it. I always recommend flowy dresses for maternity sessions. They are so flattering and bring interesting elements to maternity sessions.
Mantua Poppies Maternity Session
I can’t say it enough, do a maternity session. One of my biggest regrets it just that I don’t have pictures from my first pregnancy. I was embarrassed of my changing body and of the baby bump I thought was going to take over the world. That (obviously) wasn’t the case. And after having my son and my body returned to a more familiar state, I missed my bump and I didn’t have ANY pictures to remember it by. I promised myself, that no matter how I felt during this pregnancy, I would make sure to take lots of pictures and have lots taken of me. I can’t recommend enough, that you do the same <3
