December Mom of the Month | Puyallup Maternity Photographer

It was so much fun having Andrea as Stephanie Ratto Photography's Featured Mom of the Month for December. We enjoyed her portrait session at Owens Beach and did some spur of the moment maternity portraits back in November when it snowed! That is one of the many perks of being a Mom of the Month for Stephanie Ratto Photography! You are one of the first to be called when I have specific visions for portraits. Her maternity portrait gallery couldn't have been more perfect with lots of variety! She is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to deliver her fine art canvas that she ordered!

My goal with the Mom of the Month portrait session is to get moms connected! Without further ado, meet Stephanie Ratto Photography's Featured Mom of the Month for December, Andrea! 

Andrea is originally from Florida and moved here with her husband Anthony who is in the United States Army. They tried for a baby for over a year and a half and ended up seeking help from an fertility clinic. After four rounds of treatment, she is due with her first child, a baby boy, this upcoming February 2018!

It was a pretty stressful time, and that last round was actually the one that I was starting to consider taking a break from it all. It becomes so disappointing when you don’t know why it’s not working for you when you see it working just fine for so many. My anxiety was starting to get worse with each round of treatment

Infertility is more common than you would believe.  I appreciate Andrea sharing her story. Pregnancy so far has not been easy, but she knows it could have been so much worse! She did however suffer from awful morning sickness and lost almost 20 pounds. 

I couldn’t even drink plain water! (to this day, it still makes me nauseous)

I asked Andrea how pregnancy has been emotionally for her and how has she embraced the changes that her body has gone through. 

I’m already a super emotional person, so pregnancy has just enhanced that aspect of me. And I’m sure my husband can tell you all about that lol! I definitely complain about every “little” ache and pain. While I’m also not too happy with some of the changes my body is going through I do embrace my belly and the little boy growing in there. I just tend to try to focus on him rather than the things that are inevitably going to be different about me. It’s all worth it.

Andrea is very excited for their little boy. Their whole family dynamic is going to change and she can't wait to figure it all out with her husband Anthony right there with her. 

Thank you Andrea for sharing your story and thank you for allowing me to capture this amazing time in your life.
