As a San Diego maternity photographer, I get so excited when new clients reach out and know exactly what kind of shoot they want. Kenzie was no exception! Kenzie contacted me after seeing a studio maternity shoot I had recently photographed. She knew, after seeing the photos, that an in-studio maternity shoot was the perfect setting and style for her. She even brought along her husband and first baby, her dog, to be a part of the experience.
I love giving my clients the option to have their maternity shoot completely private or if they want to invite other family members, husbands, other children, or pets, are all great include in this experience. Whether my clients have an exact vision of what they want to achieve or if they need some guidance in figuring out the right setting and style for them, I am happy to assist in executing the maternity session of their dreams!
If you want a private experience to capture the beauty of your growing baby bump; studio sessions are ideal for maternity shoots. This is such a special time when the mother and baby bond, and there is no better way to capture that rawness and purity than with an intimate shoot. When I work on a studio session with a client, I invite them to my home. This is where I set up a backdrop, lighting, and music to help set the overall tone for the session. I strive to put my expectant clients at ease throughout the session allowing you look and feel your best.
When planning your maternity session, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first step is to schedule your session between the 28th and 34th week of pregnancy. This will depend on how you feel and how your belly is growing and showing. Because every expectant mother’s body is different, pick a time when you feel most confident showing off your new bump. Next, I recommend wearing something that shows off your baby bump, such as a gown. If you hire me as your San Diego maternity photographer, I have a variety of gowns available for you to borrow. This includes the gowns worn by Kenzie in this shoot. I also encourage clients to take their time and find something that makes them feel their best. Finally, bring one or two flower arrangements or loose flowers to use as accents in your photographs. You can use these as flower petals on the floor, floral accents in your hair, or even to hold a small bouquet. This will add a visual element to your photos and is a great place to add a pop of color.
