I’m in love with a new me
I’m not going to lie at first the thought of taking STL maternity boudoir photos like these at one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life made me a nervous wreck. Like how am I supposed to feel sexy or beautiful when I’m really feeling like a beached whale?
But right now I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes looking at these pictures. Instead of embarrassment, I’m looking at what my body is capable of, and it has me feeling lots of things, but surprisingly uncomfortable is not one of them.
I’m proud. I’m proud of all the changes and the life I’m creating. For the first time, I’m looking at myself with love and not criticism searching for flaws.
Pregnancy definitely changes you as a person. You, as a woman have your struggles. There’s plenty, but it is this amazing journey that shifts your focus and pushes you to re-evaluate your life and it’s priorities.
The days are not always easy growing a little person inside of you. From the hormones, the morning sickness, the changes a body endures, body image itself, and the many nights of sleeplessness.
Yet, when it all gets to hard, just remember how powerful you really are. You are growing life inside you, and that is incredible!

It’s me, Tracy, again.
My business has been in STL since 2016. What is so incredibly cool about 2021 right now is that I’m getting returning clients who were once my bridal boudoir sessions. They’re returning for STL maternity boudoir photos or 5 year anniversary sessions. I’m not going to lie, sometimes it makes me tear up how you all trust me for such important memories.
If you’re ready to book your first session or your second or third or tenth, I’m ready to photograph you. Email me at email@example.com or click the book now button above. 🙂
