With the current pandemic situation that has taken over and taken away our normal day to day lives, here at Millyard, we are making the most of our time, not only continuing to work hard, but also doing a lot of reflecting back on our true love for all the genres of photography that we do. And so we want to share with you, why each one is so important, not just to us as the photographers, but why they are important for you.
Maybe you’re a soon to be Mama, or an eventually but not right now, or maybe you’re going to be a mother for the second or third time! Either way, this is a post for you, no matter which category you fall in.
Here at Millyard Studios, we are not just photographers, but we are story tellers too! Becoming a mother, becoming parents, becoming a family, all come together and are a major part of your story, and we want to help you tell it!
In the beginning 9 months may seem like a long time, but it goes by so fast that, you blink once, and it’s gone. And thats one of the bittersweet parts of life. Moments are quick and fleeting, and they don’t last. But the preservation of those moments, memories, they do last, and thats our job. We want to help you preserve those moments. A pregnancy is 9 months, but in grand scheme of a lifetime, 9 months is just a moment, but an incredibly important and emotional one at that!

Our definition of maternity :
A beautiful moment
A celebration of love, life, motherhood, womanhood, femininity, and the powerful and beautiful transformation of your body.
Over the years, we have met a lot of Mama’s, and each one has her own journey. Every pregnancy is different, and we know that a lot of women may not always feel beautiful during this time. You may feel big, bloated, or heavy, and you might not feel up to doing much of anything, say nothing about getting in front of the camera. But it’s important to recognize what you are actually going through, and see the beauty in it! Your body is changing in a way that, it has become a home to your baby, a safe house, a place of warmth nurture and protection while new life grows inside you.
It’s important to recognize that becoming a mother is a struggle of its own, but to recognize your own strength during the process!
Pregnancy : A beautiful part of your story, a moment that should be preserved and remembered.
A beautiful moment to be celebrated as a woman
A beautiful moment to be celebrated as a couple
And a beautiful moment to be celebrated as a family
So when you find yourself debating if it really matters to have maternity photos, think again, and remember, it’s an important and beautiful moment in your story. And we hope that you’ll give us the pleasure of helping to tell your story, and capture your moments!
