I had such a fun time photographing this wonderful couple who is expecting their first child. I love it when women really treat themselves for their maternity sessions. This beautiful woman utilized both my professional hair and makeup artists for her maternity session. Doesn’t she look lovely? I always say clients for maternity sessions should be similar to a natural looking bride – dreamy, soft, and feminine. We used the bright white curtain set up at first.
I love including husbands during these sessions. After all, there are two people expecting the birth of their baby. But, like most of the dads I work with, he didn’t want to be in many. I assured him he was just a prop. LOL But look how beautiful they look here. I love her sweet smile.
She loved my rim lighting pictures but didn’t want to show her bare belly. I’ve never shot this with clothing before, but it still looks gorgeous.
Then it was time for a change of clothing into something more casual and comfy. This is always one of my favorite poses for pregnant couples.
If you are currently pregnant, you really should consider celebrating your body – memorializing this amazing, magical time of your life. I recommend having these sessions between 32-34 weeks. That way, you haven’t reached the overly swollen feeling, and we aren’t in risk of you going into labor and missing the session. At Firefly Nights Photography, we want each maternity session to be what the client wants – whether it is boudoir styled, artistic nudes, playful, outdoors, etc. We can do it all. And if you come to us for your maternity session, we give you half off the session fee for your newborn session.
I can’t wait to meet their little one in the summer!
