Whimsical Forest & Water Maternity Session
Pregnancy is so beautiful. I know expecting mothers often get irritated with the constant looks from strangers, the awkward belly touches, and interesting questions (I certainly understand how it can get old after a while), but the truth is that people just can’t help but stare. It still such a wonder to us all how a baby can live and grow in there for nine months. The pregnancy glow is real, and it’s magnetic. While you may feel like you just swallowed a watermelon, others see complete beauty and strength, and they’re drawn to it. Just as expecting mothers and fathers are curious about what their little ones will look like – to finally meet them and experience that joy of being together – others can’t help but feel a little curious, too.
Capturing the Glow ~ A Serene Outdoor Session
That being said, a maternity session is the perfect way to capture that alluring beauty of pregnancy and document this short but pivotal stage for couples. Judith knew it was important not to miss a moment of it – even if she was feeling a little tired at this point in her pregnancy – and she was determined to get beautiful maternity photos created as they’re expecting their first baby.
But Judith didn’t want just any maternity session. She wanted it to be one-of-a-kind and magical. I knew of just the place and the perfect dress to go with it! This satiny light-blue gown that she chose was the perfect color to offset the gorgeous fall colors of the forest that we were in. This is one of my favorite locations – sorry, can’t give away my secret! – and Judith’s main goal was to get a photograph of her standing in the river to take it to the next level. So, we both FROZE our toes off and waded out into the water to get the shot. Her husband is from a much warmer climate and just returned from visiting family in Miami. He’s made peace with living up north, and he loved the hiking to create all of these photos. They were both troopers, and I love how these special images came out.
Congrats to this sweet couple!
