If you have a ring or a necklace passed down from your mom or your great great grandma, that's a beautiful thing to include in your maternity session.
Every photo has a story, and additions like this only make the story that much richer and meaningful to you when you look back on them! Isn't that part of the reason you hire a photographer to photograph you? You want to look at a photo and feel emotion, and see things in the photo that are special to you. Incorporating family jewelry is an amazing way to do this.
I love to hear the stories of my clients when they explain what the meaning behind special items are. In the photos below, the necklace my client is wearing belonged to her grandmother. When I commented on how unique it was, and asked her if it had any special meaning, she told me the story. It belonged to her beloved grandmother who passed away when she was a teenager, and they were naming their baby girl after her! How special is that? I now suggest that clients think about any jewelry they may have that has been handed down to them. Wouldn't it be so special if a mom expecting a little girl chose to wear her grandmother's pearl earrings and then her little girl wore those same earrings on her wedding day?
