Congratulations on your new bundle (or bundles) of joy that will be arriving soon. This is an exciting, terrifying, and absolute crazy time in your life, but it is also the most joyous time to capture and celebrate. I love capturing the warm glow of a mama to be.

During a maternity session with The Mad Propper Photography every mommy-to-be is captured in such a way they will never forget.

I know that you may not feel like taking pictures either from a rough pregnancy or because you just don't feel like you will look good in front of the camera. I am here to tell you that it is totally untrue and each and every mom is worth taking that moment to document something that is a once in a lifetime experience. I have some rough pregnancies and out of my four daughters I only have one set of maternity pictures and I regret not ever having done them before my last one. Trust me when I say that your child will one day want to see those pictures of them in your belly!

I have several maternity dresses in the client closet at the studio and will be purchasing more throughout the year as always. I like to rotate what I have on hand for those maternity sessions. I have various sizes and styles. If I do not have something on hand that you would like and you choose to purchase your own for your session, I do offer discounted rates for those willing to donate their gowns after their sessions. All you need to do is purchase your gown and provide me with the receipt for the cost of the gown and I will discount the cost to the total cost of your session once you have donated the gown to the studio.

Now down to the details of the maternity session giveaway.

I am going to be giving away one session to a lucky mommy-to-be. This will include the client closet use, no session fee, and 10 edited images you choose from your proofing gallery (a $325 value). While the proofing gallery will contain more than 10 images you are in no way obligated to purchase any more images at that time. You can choose your ten free and leave it at that. If you want to purchase more you may do so at additional costs. The session can be for in studio or outside at an agreed upon location to be determined at a later date.

All you have to do is share this blog post on Facebook and comment on the Facebook shared blog post (Click-> here) with your due date. That's it! So simple and yet so amazing. Contest ends March 10th!

Good Luck to all of you amazing moms-to-be and Congratulations!

The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."
