Maternity Photo Series

Hi guys! I’m so excited to finally share my maternity series pictures with you! The team I worked with (tagged below) was an amazing and inspiring group of women. Each are incredibly successful and talented in their own fields, photography, makeup artistry, hair, styling, everything- but on top of that they were all so humble and chill like true girl bosses should be.

The inspiration behind this series was to celebrate the beauty of being pregnant. Pregnancy can be so draining, emotionally and physically. It can also be hard to feel happy or beautiful with all of the changes going on in your body, gaining so much weight, and let’s not forget the lack of sleep. Taking the time to take pictures and document this period in life is so important, I think I have like two pictures being pregnant with Adam so I always advise moms-to-be to do it because later in life you will really appreciate it .

It was really fun to also incorporate my culture into the looks, by wearing traditional Pakistani clothing, two of the looks are actually borrowed from my family members, because I wanted to give a nod to my Sindhi heritage. (The hat I’m wearing is a typical traditional Sindhi hat.) Overall, having a day of pampering, getting glam, wearing gorgeous clothes, and shooting in an incredible location – what could be better??
