8 months pregnant – this radiant mama flew into Dallas, TX for me to take maternity portraits of her! I felt so honored to take her pictures, and we had the lovely MUA & hairstylist from Lisa Max Beauty do Ann’s hair and makeup. This mama was willing to do anything, including posing like a mermaid in the water 😉 I hope I get to meet your little one!
Lately I have been thinking about what other props I could add to my maternity offerings. I currently have maternity gowns with lace and chiffon, wraps, and some jewelry but I wanted something more. Sooo….
I decided to make a pretty flower crown to add to my props for maternity shoots. “Well hello, Pinterest! You haven’t failed me yet.” So after browsing all the photos on this wonderful “idea site”, I settled on a color pallette and bought all of the materials. I sat in the bed and just started putting flowers onto a base and voila – DIY floral crown! The circle base for the crown was actually made from flower stems put together instead of wire – I may have forgotten to buy wire at the store (oops) but it worked out in my favor.
I put together a quick collage to share a little bit of my process so anyone that is interested can make their own. Please ignore the photographer in the image and the bad room lighting 😛 – when taken outside and placed on a gorgeous pregnant mommy it will shine. I can’t wait to use this on my next maternity session (with a willing client).
More to come…
