“Ewww…no! I wouldn’t want him there!! This is about me; it’s about my pregnancy and my body.”
Shana said about her husband over breakfast the other morning. Her face scrunched up at just the thought of her handsome husband by her side. Now while many of you might be thinking we were talking about the birth, we were actually talking maternity portraits!
First off, a HUGE congratulations to one of our own MUA’s and her husband, Matt & Shana Christoforo!! They recently announced that they are expecting their first child this August and we couldn’t be more happy for them!

Now back to that breakfast, Shana messages me to ask if I would do her “glam maternity portraits” and of course I said yes! So we had breakfast to brainstorm. We chatted details like what to wear, how far along she should be when photographed and then I asked her the question that turned her nose…’would you want Matt to be there?’ “Ewww…no! I wouldn’t want him there. This is about me; it’s about my pregnancy and my body.” I just died laughing and said “O, thank God!”
See, I believe there is a time and place for maternity portraits with dad and baby and flowing gown in a field of whatever…
I also believe that what I offer is a super special experience, exclusively for mom to be. It’s what I love about fashion inspired maternity portraits. I will pose Shana just like she is a model; she just happens to be pregnant. It’s about the experience. It’s about being pampered, glammed up with hair and make up and jewelry and the fan of course! It’s about this super special time in a woman’s life. No one else can experience that for her or take it from her.
So, once again….congratulations Shana and I can’t wait to photograph you!
