Sarah has baby number two on the way, so I was so excited to meet up with her family for maternity portraits. It is always an honor when another photographer chooses me for their portraits. Photography is such a personal choice, and I love to be part of it.
Originally, Sarah had really wanted a location with wildflowers but the flowers all my usual locations had faded and were gone by the time her session came around. Instead, we chose this (new favorite) location with an avenue of big pepper trees with lovely green branches reaching almost all the way to the ground. I am thrilled with the images!
Sarah chose to wear one of our new custom maternity wardrobe dresses! This soft blush gown was custom made for Just Maggie Photography by Sew Trendy Accessories. When you book your maternity session, I’ll tell you all about the dresses we have to choose from.
And then – surprise surprise! I happened to walk through to the other side of the row of trees and found a whole field of wildflowers right next to it! What a lucky coincidence! This sunny field was the perfect place to wrap up family maternity portraits.
Happy belated birthday to Oliver! This little boy turned one back in February. It was so wonderful getting to capture his whole first year for him and his sweet parents. I’m so sad to say that they are moving away. I will truly miss them, but they’ve promised me they’ll come back for visits and family portraits often!
For Oliver’s one year we did a quick cake smash (the messiest I have EVER seen) in the studio, and then went out to the beach for some beautiful sunset family portraits.
For the rest of Oliver’s First Year, you can see his Mama’s Maternity Portraits, his newborn portraits, 4 Month Portraits and 8 Month Portraits.
AND you can watch a slideshow of his whole first year:
I cannot even adequately express how in love with these images I am. Beautiful couple, perfect beach light and all the love that comes with a maternity portrait session. Plus they were so much fun!
One of the reasons this shoot was so fun was that Dad couldn’t keep a straight face when the waves came in! Apparently, he is not a nature person, so he kept getting surprised by the cold waves! We were all laughing – so fun!
Just look at how Elainna is glowing in these images. She is just radiant! I cannot wait to meet their little boy.
