There is something so special about a mama-to-be. This Studio Muse maternity session was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the beginning of motherhood and this incredible time in this mama’s journey. It is such a joy to capture a first-time mom as she steps into her new role.
Studio Muse is a cozy spot in Norfolk, Virginia. I love the simplicity of this shoot and the space. The background helped to highlight and keep our focus on the mama-to-be. This indoor studio is the perfect backdrop for showcasing your baby bump and focusing on connection with its clean, modern aesthetic.
Your maternity photos can be simple and intimate. This is such a monumental time in your life as you prepare to welcome a new baby. Your body does incredible things as you enter the sacred space of motherhood. An intimate session captures the emotion of this season and allows us to capture the deep connection you have with your growing baby and your partner, if you decide to include them.
Flowers were such a beautiful choice for this shoot. They highlighted this first-time mama so beautifully and added a simple, colorful touch.
This day was also an opportunity for this new mama to be pampered a bit before her photo session. She had her makeup done by Ashley at Allured Artistry and her hair done by Danielle at Willow and Lace Hairstyling. A little bit of indulgence can sometimes help you feel your best for your shoot. Her team did a great job, and she was gorgeous and confident during her Studio Muse maternity session.
Whether you like a simple, intimate studio session like this one, or you prefer to connect with nature in an outdoor shoot, I encourage you to celebrate this transition into motherhood. I would love to help you capture your connection to your growing baby, your partner, and your kids.
