Pregnancy is one of the most amazing experiences of a woman’s life, and when my good friend Ayesha fell pregnant I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a unique photo series centered around her during this time!
We shot this sun-soaked pastel photo series in three parts. At 20 weeks, again at 30 weeks, and then… beautiful baby Benjamin at 40 weeks!
Big props to Ayesha for being such a wonderful, agreeable and CONFIDENT woman during these shoots. We shot everything outdoors, early in the morning, mostly in public places and… she was only in a swimsuit! Eeep! The ask wasn’t easy, but I’m so glad we got to capture her experience in such a fun and creative way.
PS: Thanks for going down this crazy road with me Ayesha, I know at times it took all you had to get out there in front of the camera ♥ You’re goddamn amazing!
Here we go!
