Maternity photo session: beautiful mom Amanda

I was very happy when Amanda reached out and booked me for her Maternity session with Bethanie Mattioli Photography. Amanda is like a friend to me and she’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. In my experience, most pregnant women aren’t feeling their greatest physically at this point although emotionally they’re very happy and can not wait to meet their child. For Amanda, it was a skin pigmentation issue. She had these dark spots developed on her forehead and very dry skin, and my job was to make them disappear and make Amanda feel girly and pretty again when leaving my chair. Another thing I found so important when doing Maternity makeup: contouring. I think most women at this stage experience bloating and their body, including face retains lots of water weight. I have so much love and respect for these mommies! My makeup + hair service is like a great treat for them and these maternity photos will be priceless for years and years to come! Imagine how thrilled your child would be learning that he/she was there in mama’s belly…
