Her body like a pomegranate torn
Wide open, somehow bears what must be born,
The irony where a stranger small enough
To bed down in the ox-tongue-polished trough
Erupts into the world and breaks the spell
Of the ancient, numbered hours with his yell.
Now her breasts ache and weep and soak her shirt
Whenever she hears his hunger or his hurt;
She can’t change water into wine; instead
She fashions sweet milk out of her own blood.
As a woman turns into a mother, two sides emerge: the strong, protective side and the soft, nurturing side. Both exude femininity. A luxury maternity photoshoot captures the duality of motherhood in a way that is timeless and sublime. In today’s blog post, as foreshadowed by American poet A.E. Stallings poem above, we are highlighting the powerful side of motherhood.
The Beauty of Maternal Strength in a Luxury Maternity Photoshoot
During pregnancy, a woman is no longer just herself. She is also carrying another person inside her. The changes in a woman’s own world are significant; her body has become more curvaceous, her breasts have increased in size, and she may be experiencing morning sickness or fatigue. She is preparing for the arrival of another human being into this world. These back aches and abdominal cramps often reveal a hidden maternal strength, and make for some powerful fine art pregnancy photographs. We want our mom-to-be’s natural beauty and power to shine through in each photoshoot so that other mothers can see themselves reflected in these images.
Revealing Maternal Instincts in a Luxury Maternity Photoshoot
While a woman’s body is preparing to give birth, so is her mind. This is the time when she develops maternal instincts and begins to understand what it means to be a mother. She becomes more inspired to protect and care for her family. This maternal instinct to keep one’s offspring out of harm’s way at any cost extends to other animals as well. We empower women to embrace their new role of protector in photoshoots that convey a sense of quiet fierceness and boldness. Any time you don’t feel capable of handling the challenges of motherhood you can look at these photos as a reminder of your inner grace and power during this transformative period.
