For some a maternity photo session might be their first time being photographed in a photo studio with lights and often times showing off your pregnant body. I assure you that I make sure that you are comfortable the moment you walk into my studio in Brea Ca. You have the option to have your hair and make up done with one of my make up artists while we discuss your looks and go through the gowns and fabrics you like. I usually have my assistant working with us in the studio especially for photos like this one below. The fabric you see so beautifully flowing in the air is usually tossed by my assistant while I shoot at high speed to catch it falling. I will guide you with words and by showing you with my own movements how to pose from head to toe. You don't need to worry about not knowing how to pose. We take our time and make sure you are hydrated, not too warm or cold, In a couple of rare cases I have had moms need to take some time to lie down or even get sick as is the case with some in the third trimester. Which is why it is important not to wait too long as you get more and more uncomfortable the closer you get to your due date. My goal is to make it an enjoyable experience for you, I want you to feel pampered and beautiful while I capture this special moment in time for you.

The maternity session is also a great time for us to get to know each other and by the time your baby is born you are very comfortable with me and my studio just in time for your newborn photography session. Read my other post about Maternity sessions here. Let's get in contact and discuss your Maternity photography session soon.

Recently I got the chance to work with an amazing family once again photographing grandbaby #2! Another newborn baby girl! This family was amazing. The grandparents were part of the session as well which I always encourage. You will see a photo of the three generations of grandma, mom and baby at the bottom. It was a pleasure to capture these beautiful photos for them and I hope to work with them again in the future.

Previous to having the studio space I now have in Brea Ca. I only had my small studio space in Whittier Ca. that was lacking the space to be as creative as I wanted to be. Now that I have a dedicated photo studio with high ceilings and open space I can do so much more! Maternity sessions are such a different photo session from any other sessions but especially from a newborn photo session. I love to meet my client and photograph them while baby is still in the womb. It is a great time to get to know my client and make her feel beautiful. We capture some amazing images and then a few short weeks later we get to meet her baby and she already feels totally comfortable with me and knows that I am going to take care of the both of them.

Pregnancy is long but so short... before you know it your belly is gone and baby is in your arms. It is a different experience for everyone but for me personally I loved being pregnant and my biggest regret is not documenting my beautiful bump 10 and 12 years ago in this style. I wish I had images like this to look back on- hair and make up done and beautiful lighting and poses... back then it was more of a trend to do outdoor maternity sessions which are also beautiful and I still do outdoor sessions for my clients as well. I just think there is something really classic about an in studio posed maternity session. I guess it is more dramatic and artistic and I really love the look. I have a print of this mama on my wall in my studio on metal and it is stunning! If you are interested but on the fence about a maternity photography session in the studio, let me tell you that you might regret not doing it but you will never regret having these memories of the miracle work your body put in for your baby. Please contact me to learn more about a Maternity photography session for yourself in my Orange County Maternity Photography studio.
