Vintage Themed Maternity Photography | Maternity Photographer

Unique maternity photography

Are you pregnant and looking to have maternity portraits taken? Contact us today! Maternity Photography The weather was absolutely beautiful for Larry and Jessi’s maternity photography session. After a cold winter, warm temperatures were a perfect setting for a gorgeous evening to take portraits. When you look at Jessi, it is hard to believe that she is due any day. She is 9 months pregnant. She will be the envy of all pregnant mothers to be when they look at these photos. We had to make a conscious effort to make sure that we posed her sideways. That way we would ensure that the viewer would know that she is pregnant. We also photographed a couples session for Larry and Jessi. If you would like to see Jessi before she was pregnant you can view their session.

She decided that a vintage themed photo shoot was what she wanted. Having months to plan, we were able to find the perfect location. In searching for a location we wanted rustic buildings, texture and a grassy field to photograph. In Smithfield we found the answer.

Vintage Themed Photo Shoot In a vintage themed photo shoot is it important to consider several things. The location, the dress and props are critical. Larry and Jessi did an amazing job choosing the perfect outfits. We brought an authentic vintage steamer trunk and a chair. With that combination we were able to create some unique vintage themed maternity portraits.

When we think of vintage photos we think of warm light. Scheduling them at sunset was key. For Larry and Jessi, this is their last pregnancy. Grayson Thomas will be their third child and it’s a boy! They already have two beautiful girls. Because it is their last, they knew they wanted something very special for their photo session.

Remember that most expectant moms schedule their maternity photography and newborn session as soon as they find out that they are pregnant.

Outdoor Maternity Portraits

Outdoor Maternity Portraits

Outdoor Maternity Portraits Contact us today to schedule your portraits! Outdoor maternity portraits are always beautiful. Especially when we are photographing in a destination like San Francisco. This couple is currently living in San Francisco and hired us to be their destination portrait photographer. They have follow our work for some time and knew that they wanted us to be their maternity portrait photographer. We were excited to be photographing in San Francisco and though we looked up many landmarks, it was great that they could direct us to some wonderful photographic backdrops.   With outdoor maternity portraits, as well as any on location photography, it is good to know your surroundings and select unique backgrounds to make your pictures pop! Also, when photographing in a city like San Francisco, incorporating iconic areas will bring interests to your portraits. We started this photography portrait session on the stairs of city hall. We made sure that the location was identifiable so we framed the picture incorporating the wall lamps that are seen through out downtown San Francisco.   Using a variety of lens choices from a zoom lens to a wide angles lens, helps us create a different perspective without moving the couple to far. Keeping your movement to a minimum is especially important to remember with your outdoor maternity portrait sessions.   In this photograph we framed our subject in this large door. In order to capture the height of this oversized doorway, we choose to photograph this our a wide angle lens.  Golden Gate Bridge Portraits Our last stop for our outdoor maternity session was the beach. No portrait session in San Francisco would be complete without incorporating, or trying to incorporate the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a very foggy day, but if you look closely you will see it!   Are you expecting and would like unique maternity portraits or an outdoor maternity session? If so, contact us.

Military Portraits | Maternity Portraits | Emily & Shayne | Virginia Portrait Photographer

Military families:  people that are near and dear to our heart.  The military is actually who brought us together.  Relocating Scott from the west all the way due east he landed in Virginia.  That is not the only reason that it is dear to us.  We have the highest respect and honor for these families.  What they give, no one will ever understand.  Meet Emily and Shayne.  Married, pregnant and now deployed for 7 months, deployed without being able to meet his brand new baby girl until she is 6 months old…that’s unselfish giving. Meet the honored, the selfish, most respected, Emily and Shayne.  Thank you for giving….  

Maternity Photography – Heather & Gerry

Umm.  Sorry ladies.  Don’t expect to look this good at 8 months.  I was kinda hesitant to post this Maternity shoot on the blog since it’s just not fair to anyone thinking about getting pregnant.  Inserting disclaimer here:  RESULTS MAY VARY. NOT ANY ALL PREGNANCIES LOOK THIS GOOD.  I mean really, it’s just not fair.  Gerry didn’t do so bad either.  I have a feeling they are going to have one sharp looking baby in the next few weeks.  More jealousy ensues.
