I had the pleasure of taking Natalie’s maternity boudoir photos the other day! We have been go back and forth about her coming in for a session, but when she found out I was offering maternity mini sessions, she jumped at the chance! She’s an incredible business woman with her It Works business and has worked so hard alongside her husband to provide for her growing family. I’m so proud that she took this time and treated herself to this one of a kind experience. Here are her beautiful words about what these images mean to her…
“They aren’t just boudoir/maternity photos for me. They represent something so much deeper. I’m proud of these, I think they are just beautiful and that’s hard to say about yourself for most of us women and moms at times. They represent not just this incredible baby boy growing inside of me but also the two children that I brought into this world before them. I’m not looking for my flaws in these. They represent how strong I am— how capable— and fearless. For me they are an intense capture of all I have come through and all I have gained. They represent the love that John and I have together and our future to come.
Seriously writing this teared up and realizing they represent who I am. Whew…I didn’t expect that in writing this post. 34 years old. Mother of three. Once so insecure and lost and now becoming a version of myself that I am so proud to be. Being able to take these photos was such a gift. And not to talk about this business I share on social media again but without it I never would’ve had the funds to do something like this. Nowhere near. I’m so, so grateful. I never would have had these images that I will treasure always or the experiences that came from letting my guard down and documenting our 3rd blessing. This is our last little one and these photos mean the world to me!
I cannot even begin to thank Karla Mason enough. You are so amazing, talented, and you are giving the most beautiful gift to so many other women. Changing their lives and the way they look at themselves, giving them inner confidence and allowing them to love their bodies for what they are! You are a rockstar!!!! Thank you sooo much for being you and delivering pure magic out of our session.
