Lauren's Maternity Session~ New Forest Photographer~ Ann Owen Photography
I absolutely love maternity sessions, I love seeing the power of what our bodies are capable of and this session with Lauren was incredibly special to me. Lauren was 33 weeks pregnant with twins when we had our session and she has not had an easy journey throughout her pregnancy. She's experienced extreme hyperemesis, iron transfusions, double blood transfusions, gestational diabetes and has been in and out of the hospital since the beginning of her journey. She's one of the strongest women I know and I am in total awe of her. She's absolutely incredible.
I cried so hard when I saw these images because they summed up how loved and supported I’ve felt by these two throughout this pregnancy. We’ve managed to laugh through the tough times, and never lost sight of the us at the core of it. I have so many emotions as the end of this pregnancy draws near. Relief, fear, sadness, joy, anticipation, pride, awe, excitement. Whilst this is a journey I never ever want to undertake again, I’m so bloody proud of myself for making it this far, and so incredibly grateful for my village who made this possible.~ Lauren
