There are so many different styles of maternity photography. When a client schedules one with me, I am sure to ask what they want – do they want to go outdoors, in studio, dramatic and artistic, playful, sexy. There is no one look. Do they want to show their belly or not. This wonderful woman wanted to include her husband and her twelve year old daughter who is soon to become a big sister. I really loved capturing the loving relationship between mother and daughter here, and dad had me cracking up with his concerns that his shirt was too thin. I can’t wait to meet their little boy when he arrives!
I didn’t pose him like this. He just naturally was smiling down at her and brushing her hair with his hand. Love!
And this is probably my favorite one of mom and daughter. They were snugglers, which is awesome.
Mom looks amazing with her dark red hair against the burgundy dress.
And this is probably my favorite family picture of them all. I can’t wait to get one with their baby boy.
We went back and forth on if she should use this blue or the red fabric, but since her dress was red, I voted blue. She looks great it in!
We did some other great pictures with her belly showing, but she didn’t want me to share those online (even though she looked great). 🙂 Congratulations to this growing family! I wish them luck on their next big adventure.
