Sara McConnell Photography (that’s me!) is expanding.

Quite literally.

We are thrilled to expecting our third child.

And, as you can see from the photo, maybe a little unsure at times what this will mean for our family of four, which will become a family of five late this spring.

When I look back there are only a handful of photos of me from my first two pregnancies.  I was embarrassed by the size of my non-pregnant body and tried to embrace the curves that came with pregnancy but had a hard time doing so.  Despite running a half marathon during my first trimester this time I’m still not completely at peace with my body but I’m happier this time to embrace and celebrate my pregnant self.

I hope to encourage you to do the same!

It doesn’t matter if it’s your first, second, third, or fourth pregnancy.  First or last.  I’d love the opportunity to give you memories of your pregnant body that you’ll cherish.

Maybe you’re looking for a fun way to announce the gender of your baby.  I’d love to help!

Maybe you’d like to let your kids loose with some paint and their fingers on your round tummy.  I’m not afraid of a mess!

Maybe you’d like some photos of you and your partner together before your baby arrives.  I think that’s a wonderful idea!

Maybe you really would rather not have photos of your pregnant self but don’t want to regret not having those memories after the baby arrives.  I completely understand!

From now until the end of March I’m offering Mini Maternity Sessions in my home studio (it’s located in Orleans).  If you have a vision for your session, I can’t wait to hear it.  If you no idea what the heck to do with thirty minutes in front of the camera, don’t worry, I can help 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you!!!
