I contemplated doing maternity photos. My sister Kathy is fortunate to have a very talented photographer for a husband and he took some gorgeous shots throughout her pregnancy. (Check his work out gokenji.com). I knew if I did them, I wanted them to be unique and tasteful. I went back and forth and after speaking with some friends who encouraged me to bite the bullet, I explored maternity photographers. I came across Lola Melani and her photography blew me away. It was exactly what I had envisioned if I ever wanted to take maternity photos. Her work is elegant and timeless. She has a way of capturing and celebrating the beauty of pregnancy and I knew I wanted her to capture this special moment.
