NEW JERSEY & NEW YORK MATERNITY PORTRAITS in Highland Park
New Jersey & New York maternity portraits: Reflecting on the gorgeous maternity photo shoot in Highland Park we had with the lovely Lisa, I felt inspired to think of the typical maternity experience and what it brings out for so many mothers to be. Thank you Lisa, for displaying the deepest of all truths. When we give birth to another, we find ourselves reborn. We hope you’ll consider a New Jersey & New York Maternity Portraits shoot with us.

A Letter to My Expectant Self
Dear Maternal Me,
You are blossoming with hope, wonder and awe. Literally full of love. Bursting at the seams!
People look at you and say they see a glow. You can actually feel it, warming up your thoughts as you dream all day and night.
Others glance at your body and you know your growing girth is no reason for shame, but instead but of great admiration.
You are more beautiful than you have ever been.
You many have never felt this way or even slept as soundly, or fretfully, as you do now.
This child is teaching you that your body is a sacred home, defying definition by size or flaw.
This time has brought you back to yourself. As you plan for and dream for your new baby, you are redefining what your own dreams are for yourself.
You are learning patience and trust, recognizing that all wonderful things come in time.
The love you already feel for this unborn child is a birthright we all have.
There was once a time, when you too, were waited for, with pride and hope. That was a time the whole world, as much as you knew of it, celebrated every aspect of your being, no matter how it sounded, (or smelled!).
You once were cradled. Protected. Engulfed in love.
And now here you are again, from the other point of view. Full circle.
You’re discovering that your heart is able to expand far greater than you thought possible.
Waiting, at this precipice, you demonstrate a simple grace. This is the most YOU that you have ever been.
All in the anticipation of a child. Your child. Yourself. You.
Radiantly Reflecting Me 🙂
