Custom Maternity Photography

Custom Maternity Photography

When Lindsey contacted me to book her custom maternity photography session, I knew her session was going to be beautiful.  She sent me a few inspiration pictures, and I was excited to start planning.  I have photographed both of her girl’s newborn pictures, but this was our first maternity session together.  Now that they are growing from a family of 4 to a family of 5, she wanted to document this time with a family and maternity photography session.  I wanted to make their custom maternity photography session extra special.

I have known this family for years.  Not only have I photographed both of their girls, but we also run into each other around town!  When they told me they were adding a boy to the family, I was SO excited for them!  I know boys!  I have 2 🙂  Lindsey chose a gorgeous blue maternity gown to represent their new little boy.  Her girls wore precious little dresses from one of my favorite shops.  The textures, the colors, the lace, the floral crown, the light… they all came together magically.

Planning Your Maternity Wardrobe

When you book your custom newborn photography session with me, I will send you a What to Wear Guide.  Since clothing is such a personal choice and every woman’s body is different, I do not stock maternity gowns.  However, I loving guiding my clients with their clothing suggestions.  So I am constantly emailing clients back and forth as they plan their wardrobes.  My favorite clothing for mom is a maternity gown or maxi dress.  I think these are so flattering for pictures.  The length allows you to sit and lay down without worrying about showing too much leg.  The shape of a gown is also perfect for showing off your baby bump.  For this session, mom’s gown was her inspiration piece.  The girls’ dresses came from Little Trendsetter.  I LOVE the colors and textures in these dresses.  The lace and tulle are so fun and girly.  Little Trendsetter has really cute outfits for photo sessions at really affordable prices.   The floral crowns were the final touch to pull everything together.

One of the things I want all of my clients to know is that we are not going to just stare at the camera and smile.  I want to capture real connections.  Moments with your family that you can’t recreate.  Anyone can grab and iPhone camera and get people to smile.  It’s the moments in between that I love to capture.  These sweet girls are going to be such good big sisters!

Booking Your Maternity Pictures

I recommend scheduling your maternity and newborn photos during your 2nd trimester.  Maternity pictures are best when scheduled around 28-32 weeks.  I aim to schedule your session when your belly is round but you don’t feel like you are ready to pop!  All of my maternity sessions include family pictures.  We will do individual poses to show off your beautiful body, but we will also document your connection with your spouse and children.  I offer maternity packages as well as a Belly to Baby package that includes your maternity and newborn session.  If you are expecting, I would love to hear from you!  Click here to find out more about our Maternity Photo Sessions.  Then contact us here to get scheduled.

Absolutely stunning!  Amazing photos!  Their outfits are perfect!  Love this session!  Great beautiful work!

This is a gorgeous set of images.  When I saw the first sunset family image I thought there couldn’t be a better picture for this family.  But… there are so many great photos of these sweet girls and adorable parents.  I really like the parents image alone… all the love you see in it.  Wonderful work capturing them.
