Outdoor maternity sessions are my specialty, and this one was no exception. There are only a few maternity gowns that truly blow me away, and this royal blue gown with an extra long tossing train is sure one of them.
I have a collection of 20+ maternity gowns for my clients to choose from when they book with me, and both of the below gowns are available for sessions. This mom sure rocked the gowns too!
It’s December in Dallas which means the temperature get into the 30s at times. Brrrr! Although my typical maternity clients come to me for the extravagant outdoor maternity portraits, during the winter, my warm indoor studio is more the rage.
Now I know that outdoor portraits can provide more of a variety, especially with a couple walking around together or interacting with the environment, but there is something so beautiful about an indoor studio pregnancy photoshoot. I just completed two gorgeous maternity sessions where both expecting mamas had a similar vision (one wanted a couples shoot and the other wanted an individual shoot).
Check out the below images and let me know if this is the type of shoot you would want. I always love seeing my photos on Pinterest too, so feel free to pin and share your favorites to maternity inspiration boards! K-Rae Images is located in Frisco, TX (suburb north of Dallas, Texas) and serves the surrounding areas.
Indoor maternity shoot – Mom only – Pink and white dresses
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).
