Documenting motherhood is one of my favorite parts of being a photographer. This sweet family was so excited about their new addition. There is something so special about capturing those last few moments before welcoming a new baby. Life as you know is about to change forever.
Maternity photos are so special because of that beautiful glow and this mom was really glowing! The stunning views and sunset add to the feel of this session. Growing a life inside you is magical and your maternity session should reflect that.
I always take some time during a maternity session to capture the love between a pregnant mom and her partner. It is such a special time to be awaiting the arrival of your new baby together as a couple. I really love capturing a few romantic couple photos during my maternity sessions. Thinking about this baby one day looking back at these photos and seeing how in love his parents were at the time fills me with so much joy.
In Colorado we typically have a late spring. Early spring can look a lot more like winter, with the grasses still brown and even snow on the ground. I always recommend to my clients that they choose outfits that have rich colors for winter and early spring sessions to add color to their gallery. The styling for this session really compliments the season and location. I love how the red dress pops from the background and draws your eye to the glowing pregnant mom. This dress is perfect for maternity photos and is an inexpensive option from Amazon. It comes in a few other colors as well.

The best time to take your maternity photos is between 28-32 weeks. This will differ a little bit for everyone depending on how much you are showing. My maternity sessions include photos of the mom to be and her immediate family. If you are wondering what to wear for your own maternity photos, all of my clients receive my styling guide when they book a session with me. You’ll also receive my location guide to help you choose the perfect location for your maternity photos.
