Work of Art: Asheville Maternity Photographer, Sonya Stone

My lovely friend recently had a baby (like a month ago), which tells you I am behind in blogging since I'm just now posting some maternity photos! She was radiant and adorned with an amazing henna tattoo. Artwork by Julie Shantz of Little Henna Girl (check her gallery out on Facebook).

Blessed Be: Asheville Maternity Photographer, Sonya Stone

I love capturing families growing and changing. And there is nothing like adding a baby to the mix of a family with children. Mama S has already been through this and she knows what a special time this is. This is also the last baby she plans to have so it was only fitting that we photograph her and her sweet older children. Even though this is her third baby, it was her first time getting maternity photos. I am so glad we were able to sneak in this session before the birth! Congratulations to all of you!!

Decisions, Decisions: Asheville Maternity Photographer, Sonya Stone

It still amazes me how sessions unfold so personally, so individually. This maternity session is totally different from my last, but still so beautiful (IMHO!). The portraits are a match to this fabulous woman...natural but cute, relaxed but with some spunk, comfortable and beautiful. These were to be surprise for her hubby but she clued him in the day of the session after having some good laughs at his guesses about what she was up to.

And it was very special to have her mom there too. I loved that our session was a special thing they could do together to celebrate becoming a new mom. So not only will she have these breathtaking, once in a lifetime photographs, but she will also have the memory of having her mom be a part.

and now, here's a selection of some of my favorites from this session. I knew it would be hard to narrow down this session, and it was!

And Then There Were Two: Asheville Maternity Photographer, Sonya Stone

attention: the following slideshow contains a pregnant woman showing some skin so if pregnant bellies, bare skin, or beautiful women make you uncomfortable, don't look. If you are like me and think the most amazing miracle of the human race is the journey of creating, nurturing and bringing forth a new life, then click on. here's one to give you an idea...

Maternity Gallery

I don't usually do this. In fact, I've never done this. I am sharing a slideshow I created for my last maternity session. It is the entire gallery of the shoot...and actually, it's two shoots because we did one in downtown Asheville and one in the river in Pisgah Forest. Why? Because this mama is so amazingly beautiful and she was such a trooper. She let me be creative and push some boundaries, even when it made her a little bashful. And I think it paid off...I love these photographs!

And I love this woman! She is a good friend and now is ready to welcome her TWINS any day! Right? Go back and look again...twins. She looks fantastic if she were having one, but when you realize there are two...wow. And more importantly, she has accepted this journey with the same grace and patience that she parents with. It is with much love and many blessings that I share her amazing pregnancy and upcoming births. ;)
