Another beautiful maternity session! This radiant mama and her fiancé are waiting on their baby girl arriving this summer. We had a gorgeously sensual maternity session down the peninsula in San Jose. The expecting mom contacted me months ago and said she absolutely loved the “romantic Pacific Heights” maternity session that I photographed last winter. So that is where I pulled inspiration for her session. I should mention, this is one reason why having a consultation with my clients is important. It allows an opportunity for us to discuss the creative vision of their session so I can customize it making it personal and beautiful.
Much like the mama, we went for feminine and romantic. The mama really wanted to show her belly and capture close-ups of it. Having detail photos of the baby-bump is so important since it will be disappearing in a couple short months. We dressed mama in a pink lace dress that opened at the belly. Then, she changed into a white boho / hippie inspired dress for a couple of shots with her beau. When we talked about wardrobe she sent me a photo of this white dress and said she was planning on buying it for the session. But as luck would have it, it’s actually part of my maternity wardrobe for clients. Win-win! And she did look so stunning in it.
I read this quote and thought, how fantastical and prefect!
“Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star.” – Larry Barretto
Babies really are little shining stars. I’m so excited for this expecting couple to feel the joy and see the magic of having a baby girl.
