Maternity sessions are such a special time to document your pregnancy and freeze that moment in time. I had such an incredible time photographing Shadi and Sam for their maternity session at the beach!
You would not believe how difficult it is to find a dog-friendly beach in Los Angeles, but we did it! I love when my couples want to include their fur babies into their maternity photos. They are apart of your family too! How sweet is this dog with her Big Sister sign!?
Beach sessions are a beautiful setting for a maternity session. The soft, neutral glow of the sand, water and sky reminds me of the beauty and miracle of pregnancy! In both black and white, and color, as you’ll see below, it is so dreamy!
Interested in doing your own maternity session?
There is something that makes my heart flutter more for maternity sessions. Capturing the connection you already have with your little peanut, the way your husband makes you laugh or how he looks into your eyes with excitement for what’s to come … I am so excited to get those shots.
While all women carry differently and experience pregnancy differently, 27-30 week mark is great for a maternity session! Typically the belly is nice and round for photos but also a point where you still feel comfortable for photos. If you are having a high-risk pregnancy, I recommend doing them between week 13 and 28.
Many of our soon to be moms find that after 34 weeks they start to feel larger and uncomfortable and the idea of being photographed sounds unpleasant.
As long as you are comfortable I am excited to photograph a last minute maternity session!
