A cozy, elegant studio maternity photoshoot
Chelsea’s Maternity Photoshoot
Chelsea came to me wanting a very modern and elegant maternity photoshoot. She was inspired by some of my work that she saw with my signature editorial style lighting and was in LOVE. During our consultation call she shared lots of inspiration with me. Some of my work from my website and Instagram as well as from Pinterest! She wanted a mix of that editorial style and some photos with more natural light. The feminine vibe with my sheer curtains and clean, natural look.
I took her vision and gave her clear suggestions for the type of outfits that would help bring it to life. She had 3 looks that allowed us to create a lot of variety in her gallery.
The Mom and Baby Connection in Maternity Photos
No matter the details, I like to keep the focus of my maternity sessions on the connection between mom and her belly. It’s usually about 50/50 between mamas bringing a partner with or going solo for the maternity photoshoot. The connection between expecting parents and the growing belly is so special. Keeping the focus on that during a maternity session gives you this one of a kind ability to look back on the time and stage of life that only lasts so long.
Once baby is brought to life, that specific connection can slowly feel farther and farther away. It changes and evolves with the new human. Between late night feedings, doctor appointments, and the chaos of everyday life we sometimes don’t take the time to reflect deeply on that unique relationship with the growing belly. Your maternity photos can be that reminder of how that time felt.
It is a remarkable gift that I am able to give to my clients. To always remember how it feels.
My Signature Editorial Lighting
This is one of my favorite things about in-studio sessions of any kind—maternity photoshoot or otherwise. This style of lighting that I have handcrafted and perfected over the years can make anybody feel like a supermodel.
It gives us a modern and elegant setting—without any props or furniture to complicate the images. It is all about you. The simplicity lets us focus on making you look and feel glamorous.
Michigan Maternity Photographer
This sunny afternoon with Chelsea in the studio was so nice. Her gallery was full of some of my favorite maternity images that I have ever captured. We explored different lighting and Chelsea’s maternity experience.
I love getting to create imagery so personal and individualized. Documentary style candids or luxurious, editorial style imagery? This Michigan maternity photographer is capturing you as you are and allowing you to keep the way you are feeling now close.
