This is the kind of magical shoot that inspires movies! Chule and her loving husband are expecting a baby boy in just a few short weeks (although I’m sure it feels even longer to them as they eagerly await the day they get to meet their newborn son for the first time).
Every woman deserves to feel glamorous and confident during pregnancy. Although many of us feel like we just swallowed a watermelon during the third trimester – at least, I felt that way – I want expecting mothers to see that radiant glow on themselves that everyone else around them sees. That’s why I offer a full collection of luxurious maternity dresses for expecting mothers to choose from during their session. Wrap yourself in soft layers of silk, chiffon, lace, and satin to feel like a movie star while you show off that beautiful baby bump!
When Chule first contacted me, she let me know that she wanted glamor-style portraits, but she loved the idea of both indoor and outdoor session – so we did both!
For the outdoor part of the shoot, we went to a cool, wooded area surrounded by lush greenery and sprawling shade trees. It looked like something from a fairy tale. She chose a dress with a full skirt that almost looked like it was floating above the ground – so dreamy. She chose blue and green color palettes to represent their baby boy.
As it began to warm up, we went back inside the refreshing studio for lots of light and airy photos. Chule switched into a beautiful pink gown that looked like it was designed with her in mind. It accentuated her precious bump perfectly. We had amazing light for her session, and one of my favorite shots is of Chule and her husband standing together as the natural light shone softly around them. I adorned her head with a band of pink roses to complement her dress. Chule has such striking eyes and features. I absolutely loved having her as a model in my studio. You would think she was a professional!
And finally, we did a few more natural, relaxed poses of Chule in a sheer, light green dress, showing off her bump from the side. She seemed so calm, peaceful, and confident – just the look I was hoping to capture for her.
I couldn’t be more excited for this lovely couple as they are about to embark on a new journey together. It’s easy to see in the way they love each other that this little boy will be surrounded in warmth and abounding love from the moment he makes his first cry! Congratulations to this growing family!
