I am so excited to share this outdoor maternity session with you today. If you have been around for any time at all, you probably know that I love to capture motherhood and the bond between a mom and her children. This session is so special because it celebrates the arrival of the new little one, and also captures mom’s strong bond with her oldest child.
Choosing an outdoor location for your session can often give us lots of versatility. If there is an option to get multiple backgrounds for your photos, I will. This gives you lots of variety! Even different areas of the same location can add a lot of visual interest to your images and keep things from feeling too similar.
Outdoors can also be a really great choice if you have little ones participating in the session. I let them be who they are because I think it’s important to showcase how they interact with you. Their little personalities really shine when I just let them be. I don’t have them sit and smile at the camera because it’s not authentic and won’t give you the best pictures. We play games and laugh together. I am often out of energy at the end of a session from running around with the kids to keep things fun and relaxed. Most of all, I want this to be a fun experience for you and your family!
This sweet mama shared some precious snuggles with the big sister and some quiet moments with Dad. Your maternity session can focus on you as your body grows and changes, while also capturing your whole family. I love to see the connections each mama has with her kids and her partner.
