Maternity Studio Session Photography | Katie’s Baby Bump

Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful gifts I can imagine. I enjoy specializing in maternity shoots because I love capturing the full essence and beauty of expecting mothers. Each have their own unique radiance that shines through, full of different emotions as they await the arrival of new life. It never gets old for me.

I like talking to the expecting mothers and hearing their stories, their questions, and their expectations. No two seem to be the same. And they each have a different style that they envision for their maternity sessions. Some want to keep it simple and traditional, some love the idea of being outdoors, and some enjoy studio sessions with more glamorous shots while they embrace and celebrate their pregnancy. All of them are great, and I encourage all of my expecting clients to choose what makes them feel beautiful and comfortable.

Glowing Mommy-To-Be

For this photo session, we set up in the studio to take some stunning glamour shots of Katie in her pregnancy. She is having a baby girl, so the lace, flowing dress, and flowers seemed perfect for the occasion. I love the striking effect of the black background and black lace because it highlights Katie’s bump and her pregnancy glow. She looked truly stunning. At the same time, we took some juxtaposing shots of her in white lace with the sun streaming in, which had such a bright and joyful feel—it perfectly portrayed a sense of love, excitement and hopefulness. I think the two contrasting black and white photos would look amazing framed next to each other.

To change it up a little, we also did some ethereal fairytale photos of Katie in a wooded, tree-filled background with a flowing purple dress and floral head wreath. The color contrast looks incredible and highlights her glow. Finally, we did a few poses laying on a bed of rose petals with a simple white button down shirt. Her hair was flowing around her as she held her sweet bump. I love these pictures because they simply portray her natural beauty and happiness. In all of these poses, Katie was so calm and relaxed. I almost couldn’t stop taking photos of her because she was a natural in front of the lens. Her pictures look like something from a magazine.

It was truly an honor to meet Katie and take her maternity photos. I hope she felt like the radiant woman that she is during the shoot. Congratulations and very best wishes, Katie!!
