In honor of Mother's Day, I'm sharing some of my favorite maternity photos taken by the amazing Amanda O'Donoughue. Amanda is the sister of my best friend, Lindsey. You know, the one who threw me that amazing Tropical Boho Baby Shower last year. More than a sister, Amanda is a fierce mama bear. She's one of those women who make you feel amazing for simply being a woman.
Amanda is known for her raw talent and how she effortlessly captures a woman's beauty in all of it's glory. The evening of these photos, she worked at lightening speed to get all of the shots in under an hour, just before the sun set. She had a vision and I trusted her completely. I knew that whatever she captured would be amazing, but when she produced the edited images just hours after the shoot, I was completely blown away.
I knew to expect magic from Amanda, but what I received was far greater than that. These photos perfectly convey the love between Gianna and I and I cannot thank Amanda enough (did I mention that she also made me feel like a goddess?!). I will forever feel indebted to her for capturing something so special.
If you'd like to see more of Amanda's work, head over to her blog. You can also read her post about our photo shoot and see some of the other images here. It was truly an honor to be in front of her lens and I will cherish these photos forever.
