Moral of the story, is don't be like me! Do the shoot and if you can't for whatever reason, then stop what you are doing right now, grab your partner, and take a full body selfie together! These are the moments you will miss the most. Once they're gone, that is it. Yes, you may have another pregnancy or another baby, but it will not be the baby you are carrying right now. It won't be the same.
Hi, I'm Christina Katelyn! I am the owner (CEO, if you will) and photographer here at Motherhood Photography! I want to start off by saying how thankful I am that God has blessed me with with a creative soul I truly believe that He has given me these talents to show love to others and bring glory to His name. I'm also a wife and mom, too! My husband and I were high school sweethearts. Together we have one beautiful daughter! She truly is the light of our lives. Despite her being an only child, we all consider our pup Obi to be her "brother". Yes, we are those people who see our dog as family and treat his as such, and I have no shame in my game there! Haha!
I started my photography business in the fall of 2020 as CBC Photography. In 2021 I focused my time and energy on building my wedding and engagement side of my brand, Christina Katelyn Photography. Once I had that brand established and we moved into our new home that had enough space for a studio, I decided it was time to start building my "motherhood" branch of my brand. This branch of my brand is important to me because as a mother myself, I understand the struggles and the beauty in motherhood. I understand how important it is to document these seasons in life that never seem to last long enough. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my husband and I missed our opportunity to have maternity pictures taken. This will forever be one of my biggest regrets. That season in our lives is gone, and we don't even have as much as a cell phone selfie together. Sure I have "bumpies" (selfies with a bump) but that is it.
