Two of my very first paid shoots as a professional photographer were maternity sessions. From that point on I was drawn to the beauty and tranquility of expecting mothers. There is something absolutely magical about the concept of a woman’s ability to grow a tiny new human being. My own pregnancies were less than serene, with morning sickness (actually all day sickness) for the duration. Despite this however, I still look back at the few images I have and marvel. Although, I do wish I had sought out a more experienced maternity photographer to capture my own pregnancies just as this lovely couple did with us.
Location, Wardrobe, and Professional Hair and Make-Up
We loved shooting this maternity session in both our centrally located Edmonton studio. And then also one of our favourite local parks. Location is such an important component to consider when planning your maternity portraits. Natural light in a studio can allow us to create a soft, romantic atmosphere for timeless photos. Edmonton boasts plenty of gorgeous outdoor spaces that we love to also take advantage of to create stunning photos. Wardrobe is another key element to maternity portraits. This stunning mom-to-be utilized our studio wardrobe. Blush Artistry Edmonton did moms hair and make up.
Fur Baby Additions
One of my favourite parts of this maternity session, was their little dog, Radar. He really stole the show…in fact we have had the pleasure of photographing Radar twice since this maternity shoot. First, at his new human sisters newborn session (which is featured in our newborn gallery), then again for Christmas mini sessions. Thank you to M+J for allowing us to capture these special moments for you by capturing your maternity portraits!
