It’s always an honor when past wedding clients grow their families and have me capture future chapters for them! These two chose to have a winter Maybury State Park maternity session – one of the best spots in the metro for a maternity session in ANY season. You can see another winter session here.
Amber and Jeff’s baby is actually the same age as mine – we were due a day apart! What are the odds of that? So lovely to share their joy in this session…Amber was absolutely the most beautiful pregnant person I’ve ever seen, and we got the BEST golden hour light for March. I can’t believe how lucky we got!
The best part about a winter Maybury State Park maternity session is the evergreens. It’s easy to walk into and they look good no matter what.
One of the major questions I get is when should I book a maternity session? It’s obviously your choice, but I recommend being in the third trimester; between weeks 30-36 are best. After that you won’t want to move around as much and we risk pre-term labor!
I’m always so honored to be asked to photograph the major milestones of a couple’s life. I was so honored to photograph Jenay and Daevon’s summer maternity session at Stony Creek Metropark one month before they met their precious little Desirae. These two were a 2018 wedding couple of mine and years later, I can’t get over the brightness of Jenay’s smile – the BEST!
Stony Creek Metropark is great for a summer maternity session but truly the park is popular for good reason. It’s great in every season (see those tall pine trees) and since the park is so big, there are numerous spots to use, though the tall pines are the most popular! For this summer maternity session, we got the most amazing golden hour sunset – doesn’t Jenay just look incredible?
Many clients skip the maternity session and decide on just newborn photos, but I think there’s just a sense of anticipation in a maternity session. Much like engagement photos, there’s always this palpable anticipation that you can’t re-create later on. Maybe it’s just me and my photo-loving self, but if you’re on the fence, take the photos.
And if you’re looking for something to wear, I highly recommend Pink Blush Maternity. Their stylish outfits come in a variety of sizes – you know I love a plus size friendly brand!
