Maternity photography documents the incredible creation of new life. When selecting a maternity photographer, it’s essential to choose an artist specializing in maternity portraits.
Clients often ask when to schedule a photo session during pregnancy. The answer is as soon as possible – experienced photographers often fill their calendars months in advance! The best time for your maternity session is towards the end of your third trimester (between 32-36 weeks gestation). You’ll also need to decide if you prefer studio or outdoor portraits.
Hello-Life Studios in Austin, Texas, specializes in modern yet timeless outdoor maternity imagery. The ingredients for dreamy maternity images include a field, sunset, and – most important – a pregnant mom-to-be. When paired with the creative vision of photographer Kelli Hindman, this combination is pure magic!
The weather channel showed a thunderstorm approaching the afternoon of Brianna’s session. When we arrived, the beautiful skies and wind added a moody vibe. The sky was astonishing; it looked more like a painting than reality.
Thankfully, the rain did not appear until after our portraits were over. I created beautiful images of Brianna amid the wheatgrass fields at Brushy Creek Lake Park. Brianna’s attitude was fantastic; she patiently stood in her high heels while following my posing instructions. She remained calm and collected while the wind uncurled her hair and challenged our maternity dress tossing skills. This gorgeous pregnant lady rocked her maternity session!
