Pregnancy is such a wonderfully unique time for every woman. Does it come with its fair share of back pain and needing the bathroom every ten minutes? Of course. But it also brings the magic of feeling your baby grow inside you, the beauty of seeing what your incredible body is capable of, and the anticipation of knowing that soon, you’ll have an amazing new member in your family.
That’s why I love maternity photos so much. It’s a spectacular opportunity for women to embrace their femininity and to feel confident in their bodies, all while they’re seeing themselves change a little more every day. Maternity photography should be an empowering experience just as much as it is preserving your journey into motherhood.
This elegant momma-to-be certainly got that memo! She loved the new curves that pregnancy was giving her, and she wanted to celebrate them with aesthetic maternity photographs that we not only sentimental but artistic while also remaining tasteful enough that she was comfortable showing them to anyone. She came to me with plenty of gorgeous pregnancy shoot ideas and I couldn’t wait to put them into action!
The silhouette portrait and black and white double portrait turned out to be absolutely stunning. Mom brought her own hat to create the look she wanted, and it was a perfect fit for the aesthetic we were aiming for. While I’m always a fan of the classic maternity portraits with the dramatic and flowing maternity gown, I’m so in love with the portrait we created with the long white scarf draped over Mom-to-be’s beautiful belly.
If you want to celebrate your pregnancy and you have a vision in mind for your maternity portraits, I would be honored to bring that vision to life. Contact my Glastonbury, CT photo studio to schedule your session.
