Whether you become pregnant on purpose or by accident, growing another human inside your body is a superpower and it should absolutely be celebrated! Women’s bodies are amazing. No matter how big or small they are to begin with, they will adapt and change to provide a home for this tiny being that is growing inside. It’s magical and wonderful and powerful…even if we don’t always feel so powerful all the time. Maternity Photography is a way to showcase just that. The beauty and strength that a woman has through pregnancy.
Pregnancies come in all shapes and size and they are all beautiful. And I’m here to show these mommas that beauty in a new light. When they can only see the bump that covers their feet, I will show them their glow, their beauty that is shining out for everyone else to see and their strength to carry their baby safely to term.
This beautiful Momma is 38 weeks with baby Dalia and is still working. We got her in just under the wire for these gorgeous photos so she will have some memories to share with her daughter. We did this session at 7:45am and the weather was perfect. It was nice and cool, the sun was shining and giving us a beautiful glow right by the river. It was peaceful. Serene. Quiet. And we finished up just in time for the heat to kick in.
Maternity Photography can be an indoor session or outdoors like this one. Depending on the look you are going for and the time of year, your decision may be made for you. If you want a climate controlled area where you know that you will be comfortable, the lighting will be professionally controlled, and clean, simple look the studio is your best bed. But if you are looking for glowy sunlight and beautiful landscapes outdoors would be the choice for you. Either choice will be beautiful! It just needs to suit your personality and your family’s style.
For this session, we chose to go outside, early in the morning to enjoy the river and and the peacefulness of the breeze. Do what makes you happy and enjoy these photos by the river.
