Haley's Mom-Bod Love After Baby
Having a baby is an experience like no other. It changes your body, mind (literally changes your brain according to this study), and spirit.
A lot of that is magical and wonderful, but some of it is really hard.
Your body becomes somewhat unrecognizable and you hold the excess weight in weird places. Your body just feels slightly foreign to you now.
Adjusting to your new body is hard, especially in your sleepy, survival, and hormonal state.
You barely have time to shower, much less work on accepting your new body.
So it’s just there, every time you take off your clothes, staring back at you.
Slowly though, you begin seeing your body in a new light!
You see that your body gave life to the most beautiful child on the planet. It grew and nourished your baby.
Your body is beautiful because it sheltered and loved your precious baby.
And that, that is worth celebrating 100%!!!
That is just what Haley chose to do with her boudoir session.
Haley is just like any other Mom in the world, America, or Shreveport Bossier. She is just doing the best she can to love and care for her child. It is not easy, but it is beautiful and something worth being in awe of.
I was definitely in complete awe of Haley. She is a strong Momma with a joy that radiates from her. Her energy was so wonderful!
I really loved hearing her talk about her love for her body post-baby. At the time I was newly pregnant so I had no idea about the experience of being a Mom or learning to love your body post-baby. I was obviously in awe of a woman’s body being able to give birth and grow a whole human. I obviously believed women’s bodies were strong and magical. But, to hear her say she loved her body more?!
“I haven’t done anything to show love to my body since before I had my daughter. A boudoir shoot is something that I have always wanted to do, even more so after I had a little one (sounds crazy right)?”
That was inspirational!
Like, what a badass!
Her words were in my mind throughout my pregnancy and after having Floyd.
This is why I love my clients. They make an impact on me!
Since then, I’ve noticed other Mom’s saying similar things and I just think that is so amazing and important! Women’s bodies create, give, and nurture life.
Isn’t God amazing for creating such a beautiful thing?
That is worth celebrating!
I loved that she also wanted to spread that joy.
“I want to show [women] that you can love yourself no matter your body type. I am comfortable in my skin, but this would be something that shows me that my body is strong and amazing.”
What could be more beautiful than that?
So, join me in celebrating with Haley!
