Your maternity session doesn’t require an elaborate venue, multiple wardrobe changes, and over the top decor (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Sometimes, all you need is good light and an AMAZING photographer. Today, Ayisatu and James Buremoh share their maternity pictures with us. These photos were taken just 48 hours before the birth of their son, and captured brilliantly by photographer Milton Lawrence.
“With a golden 6pm sunset I as the photographer suggested that we take advantage of the beautiful spot light peeking through the trees to create memorable portraits that would last a life time.” – Milton Lawrence
Welcome to the MunaMommy blog! What did you have? Baby boy, by the name of Asher Amir Oluwadamilare Buremoh. Born August 25, 2016 at 1:23 AM.
What was your pregnancy and delivery like? This is my first pregnancy [and] everything was well, [I] exercised during my pregnancy, ate fairly well, was pretty active..up until the time to give birth. I wouldn’t dilate no more past 4 cm so my son was brought into this world healthy by C-section.
Did you have any cravings? If I had to say I had any cravings it was lemonade, this was before the Beyoncé album, lol crazy!
What was the theme or inspiration for your maternity shoot? Inspiration for my maternity shoot was simplicity.
How has motherhood changed you? I’ve always been one to live, love enjoy life but having my son Asher now makes me want to do it even much more.
My advice for new mothers would be just enjoy being pregnant and enjoy being [a] soon to be mommy. You get a lot of information from a lot of people but you [will] know what works best for your situation.
What are you wishes for you baby? I want my son to be a strong intelligent God-fearing productive member of society, and I know that starts with me and my husband raising him with good values.
Thanks Ayisatu and James for sharing your maternity session with us and thanks to Milton Lawrence for these amazing photos. Send our love to Baby Asher!
