I had seen maternity photos in the past and always thought they were a lovely memento of such a special time, but I didn’t think I would ever have the opportunity to do this myself. Thank goodness for Viola! Even after the photo shoot, I didn’t quite know how the images would turn out – I couldn’t imagine how things looked through the other side of the lens – but we were blown away by the end results, which far exceeded our expectations. Viola’s credentials not only as a photographer, but also a woman and mother, made me feel very at ease throughout our shoot – I felt relaxed walking around with my distorted shape completely uncovered! I have felt anything but elegant throughout this pregnancy, especially now, in this 3rd trimester, but Viola’s skills have produced elegant, tasteful images, which I know I will continue to be proud of and gaze at fondly in years to come. I am so grateful to have such a beautiful reminder of us building our family.
