There’s something about large floral arrangements that add a romantic feel to any maternity photoshoot. I mean, look at Kelly! She looks like she fell straight off a French perfume ad.
While she could rock the pages of any magazine, Kelly is already a loving Mama who came to me with a vision and a cute baby bump. In our first conversation, Kelly told me her vision was boho maternity photos full of flowers. Her vision was so clear, I knew this was going to be special.
After all, this was Kelly’s second baby. She wanted to capture every curve and memory.
I don’t think she expected it would be as beautiful as it was. She could not get enough of the flowers. (For good reason!) The floral designer did an amazing job matching flowers to the French Blue Tulle maternity robe Kelly picked out from my VIP Closet during our pre-session style consultation.
I photograph using large floral arrangements in the studio often. I actually prefer indoor maternity photos with floral arrangements, rather than in flower fields. Not only can you choose the colors and flowers you want, but you don’t have to get down in the dirt at 30 weeks pregnant and worry about fire ants crawling up your leg! (This is a real concern for Florida!)
Instead, we can hire a floral designer to craft your perfect floral backdrop – like the romantic French blue and baby’s breath, like the one Kelly chose. Then instead of dealing with the humid, Jacksonville wearer, you can enjoy the A/C in my studio, while we play around with several backgrounds, furniture, and ways to integrate the flowers into photos.
I especially loved getting to play with draping our sheer clothe throughout the shots. (I had to break out the ladder for that part!)
Book your maternity photos early, so you can schedule your photos between 30-32 weeks. It will be just late enough to have a cute bump and pregnancy glow, like Kelly. Any later than that and you risk the baby coming early. Mommas with twins should schedule their maternity photos closer to the 25-28 week mark.
