So here’s the thing: I have a thing for pregnant women, that’s the thing.
I remember my own pregnancy as the grossest and most fascinating experience a woman can have. I felt like it dragged on for all eternity whilst passed me by at the speed of light. I remember feeling infinitely vulnerable but like the strongest woman alive at the same time.
I also remember the fanny hick-ups (yes, that’s a thing), back pains & sleepless nights. The worry and the anticipation all mixed up in one messy hot pot of emotions.
I also vividly recall stories about the mythical inner glow all pregnant women supposedly possess. This with the scenario being; “Hi, I’m pregnant, full of hormones and worries, and therefore I possess an inner glow”. Right…
I am still to meet a woman who has been illuminated by a mysterious inner glow. Perhaps it’s been confused with a heart burn which a rather common thing?
I am however utterly convinced of the importance of being seen. Like, really seen. And empowered through the raging hormones, swollen ankles and fanny hick-ups. Especially when one has not slept properly for days. That’s the time to reveal this allusive glow. And it can be done. I’m utterly convinced we can do it together.
So that is what I’m offering. A confidence boosting, loud (I shout and swear elaborately when I get excited, which I will) once in a lifetime experience. A maternity photo shoot to beat all others. We can make this extraordinarily glowingly beautiful. Because all women deserve to look and feel outstanding at least once whilst going though the wonderful ordeal that is a pregnancy.
Also. I have dresses you can borrow. And an army of hair stylists and make-up artist to help with the outer glow thing, so the inner glow can tag along. You dig?
