Mother’s Day is just two short weeks away. Instead of gifting mom another piece of jewelry or a trinket, why not give a gift that lasts? An elegant maternity photoshoot will delight any expecting mother. And it’s a way to shower her with luxury and a feeling of empowerment for the season she’s in—and for the years of parenthood to come.
“It is true
I was created in you.
It is also true
That you were created for me.
I owned your voice.
It was shaped and tuned to soothe me.
Your arms were molded
Into a cradle to hold me, to rock me.
The scent of your body was the air
Perfumed for me to breathe.
During those early, dearest days
I did not dream that you had
A large life which included me,
For I had a life
Which was only you.”
This excerpt from Maya Angelou’s “Mother, A Cradle to Hold Me” captures the beauty of pregnancy. When a woman’s belly is swollen and her joints ache, it’s also true that her arms are forming to the shape of a newborn and her heart is growing to welcome a new little one. These photos from some of our recent favorite maternity shoots embody that spirit of preparation.
The poem ends with affectionate gratitude:
“Mother, I have learned enough now
To know I have learned nearly nothing.
On this day
When mothers are being honored,
Let me thank you
That my selfishness, ignorance, and mockery
Did not bring you to
Discard me like a broken doll
Which had lost its favor.
I thank you that
You still find something in me
To cherish, to admire and to love.
I thank you, Mother.
I love you.”
