Three Reasons You Should Take Maternity Photos

When I was pregnant with my first child, I made the mistake of not taking professional maternity photos. I was asked by a couple of my friends who were photographers, but I wasn’t feeling myself. I was busting at the seams and couldn’t fathom getting all dolled up for a photo session. I opted not to have them done, and looking back, I regret it. 

Now that I am pregnant for the second time, I am feeling a bit differently about the process. Here are three reasons why I changed my mind about maternity photos the second time around. 

1.  The photos document the change in your body.

Our bodies go through all these amazing changes and despite the fact that we may not feel beautiful one day or comfortable for a couple of months, the photographs will be a reminder of what we went through to bring a beautiful life onto this earth.

2. The session is a memory you will treasure forever. 

Regardless if it’s your first child or your third, these photos sessions create long-lasting memories. You get all dolled up, put on a pretty dress and smile for the camera. You look fabulous doing it and the photographs will capture that pregnancy glow. 

If you already have children, the pictures are a sweet way to show the love between a child and their soon-to-be sibling.

3. The photos are a great keepsake. 

I didn’t realize it then, but you will always have these photos to use as you wish. You can make a photo album, share them online or even put one on a large canvas and hang on your living room wall.

There is only a small window of time to take these beautiful photographs, a time that you will never be able to get back.

Oh Baby!

On July 4th, 2015, our lives changed for the second time.  We found out we were expecting our second child!

I had a slight feeling that I could be pregnant and even though it was a bit early to test, I took one anyway. July 4th is my husband’s birthday. In my head, I figured if I was pregnant, then what better time to tell my husband then on his birthday! and if I wasn’t then off to the next month.

We call him our birthday baby. We are so excited to meet him and welcome him into our family.

What is a Convertible Dress?

Just like how every woman’s closet should have that little black dress, so should every woman’s closet host a convertible dress.

What is a convertible dress? A convertible dress is a dress that can be reformed into at a multitude of styles simply by changing the straps. You can transform the look of your neck, chest, back and waistline. You can twist and tie the dress into a halter neck or even go strapless to suit the style of the event.

Nuova Vita has transformed the convertible dress into a glamorous gown that can be worn for special occasions such as weddings to being converted to something sexy for a date night or girly for a fun night out and no one will think that it’s the same dress!

I pride myself on creating fashionable and elegant pieces that you will fall in love with as soon as you wear it. From the soft fabric to the variety of colors you can choose from, you will find that having a convertible dress in your closet will be the hero outfit that you can rely on every time.

The convertible gown has become so popular that I have even created a maternity line, for bountiful soon-to-be Moms who want to wear something that makes them feel beautiful and grows with their shape. Instead of being bored with wearing the same outfit over and over, pregnant women are able to change it up, by simply converting it to a different style.

Bridesmaids are grateful to wear a convertible gown that not only works for the bride’s best day but works for many more occasions thereafter.

Finding an outfit that not only fits well, looks spectacular, and feels divine and then being able to style it differently to the occasion and mood, is now available with Nuova Vita.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is such an amazing time in your life as you begin to grow a little miracle inside your belly. To match the joy you feel, wear something that makes you feel just as beautiful. Nine months is a long time and you need something comfortable to wear that grows with you. A convertible dress doesn’t just grow with your belly, it grows with your whole shape. The benefits of buying a convertible dress during pregnancy, is you can change the style, so you look and feel like you are wearing a new outfit every time.

Not to mention the fabric I use is soft and luscious and tailored to show off your beautiful new shape. Elegance is not lost with this comfortable yet glamorous outfit. Not only do you look good you can feel comfortable too, which is very important during pregnancy.

Tara Belle recently wore Nuova Vita’s mint signature convertible maternity gown to her pregnancy photo shoot. “After slipping it [the gown] on, I was totally in the mood to snap some pics. It is totally convertible and fitted for any bod (pregnant or not) which means I’ll be styling it for many events to come!” said Tara Belle in her latest blog Field of Dreams.
