I’ve always loved the concept of maternity shoots. Capturing the joy you have when you know you’re expecting your child is just so precious. And the thing is, it doesn’t need to be complicated at all. Find a place you’re comfortable in, clothes you like, and ask your hubby if he’d like to join in. Today’s maternity shoot just serves to prove my point. Our mom-to-be, Mayleen, looked so classy in her outfits, but what I loved about this shoot were the candid moments she and her husband shared.

The most profound “advice” I ever received on motherhood came from the movie Moana. My two year old loves it, and when toddlers love any film, you see it not once or twice but hundreds of times. That scene where Te Ka is revealed to be Te Fiti without her heart, rings true for every time my toddler threw a tantrum. The fact that Moana saw Te Ka as the goddess that she is beneath that lava demon, approaching her without judgment or fear, singing the lines “This does not define you, this is not who you are…” gave me chills. It taught me to see my daughter as her highest self, even and especially when she forgets. Time and again, through all these animated classics, we are reminded that Disney is an amazing storyteller.
