Great maternity session—A Day at the Beach


2014-01-30_0001.jpgWhat a great day we had for a maternity photos at the beach in Milford, CT! Mom and dad were game for anything I threw at them—sitting, walking, even in the water! Amazing photos for November in Connecticut. The beach is a great location for any type of photos, including a maternity session because there is a special quality to the light. So many maternity sessions are done in studio and I understand the reasons behind this. I’ve been pregnant 2 times so I know that studio shoots are great because there’s privacy. I can’t argue with that. Particularly if you’re going to do anything “creative”. But there’s something about being outside. Taking that natural beauty of a woman who’s ready to bring new life into the world and placing her in the majesty of the great outdoors is simply breathtaking.You can see why the beginning of the third trimester is the best time for maternity photos. This mom was about 7 months, but still getting around great and she had that “baby glow.”

This baby is definitely coming into a loving home. I always try to include photographs that highlight the tender relationship between mom and dad, because bringing a child into the world with someone is arguably love in it’s purest form. And a beautiful baby girl was born in January. Congrats!
