Baby: Maternity Photos by Matt Mathews Photography

Good Morning Loves!!


I've been dying to share these images on my little Itsy Bitsy space here. If you haven't gathered yet, I adore my job. I love what I do!! I love being behind the camera and behind the computer and thats usually how I like to keep things. Sometimes I'm a little awkward when it comes to being in FRONT of the camera, unless its a selfie of course haha!


I work for one of the most incredibly talented humans, not just in the south but pretty much in the United States. Matt has worked his tush off to really build his brand and really make a name for himself. He's an extremely established and well known Boudoir Photographer, educator and very soon to be author, who photographs women all over the United States as well as teaches and shares his knowledge of the industry with fellow photographers and entrepreneurs. How on earth I ended up being his Studio Manager, Associate Photographer, and right hand lady, I'll never know. But what I can tell you is that I'm incredibly thankful that I have enough talent and knowledge to fulfill the roles of that for Matt. He took a risk hiring me and I hope he's always able to see that as a risk that holds value.


I have to give credit where credit is due. I did not want to apply for this "Dream Job" as a lot of people refer to it. My husband, who is constantly pushing me to step outside of my own self-identified boundaries, literally drove me insane about reaching out to Matt for weeks....y'all, WEEKS!!! He had no idea he was about to be hiring, he just knew I loved this industry and was much happier being creative. Then one day I was sitting in my car cramming down my lunch on a short break and Matt posted a job opening for his studio manager position and I thought "well, crap! If that's not a sign then I don't know what is..." and the rest is history basically. Although having a little bundle of joy wasn't really part of the plan when he hired me, I have no doubts that this will just increase my desire to help his business grow and explode even more widespread. Its hard to see that now with so much feeling like the unknown. But what I do know is two things: 1) I genuinely care and have a desire to see Matt Mathews Photography continue to grow and grow and grow because there is constant vision and constant drive there And 2) I have and always will have a deep desire to work hard and express my creative abilities and that is something that will never diminish, baby or no baby.


I want Braxon to see his mom as a Creative. I want him to know that his mom has always and will always march to the beat of her own drum. I want him to see me as a hard worker and someone who is successful. I want him to see my passion for the photography industry and know that with passion and drive equals magic. I want him to see art as ART and not be offended by it. I want him to learn and see the VALUE of a piece of art work. And most importantly, I want him to learn that you don't have to do the normal 9 to 5 jobs for a career to be successful. {{And please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with any "normal/typical* job!}} When you step out into the creative world in hopes of it being your career, its challenging, a super risk for sure and so incredibly fulfilling day in and day out.


I'm so in love with my Maternity shoot and to have the chance to be photographed by not one of the TOP photographers but THE TOP Boudoir Photographer in the industry and it is something I definitely do not take for granted.


Here are a few images from our session with Matt. Hope you love them as much as Aaron and I do!! Also, side note, prepare yourself for my smokin' hot husband!!!!







I will cherish these images for a lifetime. They capture a moment in my life that Aaron and I didn't see coming. They capture a joy that I never knew I needed. They capture the love Aaron and I have for each other that grows every single day. They capture these last few months of it just being the two of us. This list could go on for literal miles.


You see, photography is so so much more than just a photograph. They capture a moment in time that you can never get back or relive. They evoke so much emotion from that specific moment and help bring back memories of the times that have passed. These photos aren't just another photograph to me. They show me that I am a beautiful mama-to-be. they show me how incredible the human body is. They show me a love my husband has for me that can sometimes be missed through the hustle and bustle of every day life. They show possibly the calm before the store (hahahaaa). They seriously hold so much value that you really cannot put a price tag on. I will forever and ever be in love with these images, this artwork!


Thank you Matt for being an amazing boss, much more than that, a great friend and just a good human being trying to and making a difference in the world! You've made a huge difference in the life of my family and thats something I'm sure my husband would say a HUGE thank you for because I come home much much happier from work :)
