“Natalia and Marten were such an awesome couple to work with. “Being pregnant feels like I am blooming from the inside”, said Natalia to me when we first met. So we were looking for an allegory for this feeling and have found it in the beautiful spring garden called Sansoussi, in one of Natalia`s favorite places in Potsdam, Germany, the charming town where the baby girl was expected to be born. While feeling connected with the blooming nature, Natalia was almost flying among all the flowers blooming in the garden. When Natalia saw the photos for the first time, she said: “I didnt know I looked so harmonious with nature and so beautiful”. The more often I hear it, the more honored I feel to have the opportunity to show a mother how truly beautiful she and the moment are.
As a photographer, I`m not sure there is any other job in the world which lets you dive into this concentrate of the purest, unconditional love and endless femininity, as motherhood photography does. During a photo shoot every mother-to-be forgets all her fears and uncertainties and fully focuses on the beauty of now. It’s a huge privilege to be there to catch these moments and to capture her soft eyes and tender smiles intended for her child. Though I am not a mother myself yet, I feel Motherhood is the most challenging, yet inspiring state of life. Somewhere inside I know how incredibly precious these moments are and that I want to capture these moments for the mothers of the world.” Alina, Photographer
