Winter Maternity Session
Updated: Jan 11, 2021
I always get a little bit nervous when booking outdoor sessions during the winter months. You never know what the weather will be like, will it be snowing or -30 outside, will it be super overcast or will the sun be shining so bright and glistening off the snow creating harsh shadows? Thankfully the day of this session could not have been more perfect! The sun was out and giving that perfect warm glow you often only get during fall sessions.
This couple wanted to go to the legislative grounds for their maternity photos, its somewhere I do not often shoot so I was looking forward to the new location and working with a building instead of my typical nature settings. Unfortunately when I arrived, I quickly realized the entire building was under construction. So we could not get the photos by the building that we had originally planned on. Instead we walked around the grounds and got to capture this maternity session in a few different spots right in the heart of our beautiful city.
That golden glow through these trees had me melting right from the get go! And I mean come on look at how much these two love each other.
As I was going to meet the couple, I walked through these trees and thought it was beautiful how they framed this path, a perfect spot for photos!
And how perfect is her dress next to the white of the snow.
Because it was a such a gorgeous day outside I had to get creative with angles and photoshop to ensure strangers were not in the background of their portraits.
The sunset was perfect, the weather was perfect, the session was perfect! I am so excited to meet this little one in the new year!
