charlotte maternity photo session

Maternity photoshoots are some of my favorite shoots to do as a photographer. There is just something about celebrating the beginning of new life that warms my heart and brings out my creative juices.

Summers in Charlotte can get unbearably warm and humid. The sun does not go down on most days till 7pm and sometimes even later. So what is a photographer looking to shoot a maternity  photo session outdoor to do?

Do it anyway!

This session was a dream. The expectant Mama reached out via Instagram and requested a session to celebrate her maternity journey. We were all set for a date in June and the the unexpected. Her husband had to be hospitalized for a a sprained ankle and even had to have surgery, Since we wanted him to be part of the session. there was nothing to do that to eagerly await his recovery. Unfortunately, the baby due date was fast approaching and he was still on crutches. There was nothing to do that to go for it and ensure we put as little strain as possible on the ankle.

It was a beautiful summer day and lucky for us the heat did not add to the stress. The parents dressed beautifully in blue to celebrate their unborn son and I am so excited about how the photos turned out. The expecting mama was glowing and I am glad we were able to do this shoot before it got too close to her due date. It is important Mamas, to get your maternity photo session done at least 3 weeks before your due date. One reason is because the closer you get to your due date, the more tired you are getting. Especially if you are looking to do an elaborate session with different outfits and locations. My recommended period is between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Congratulations guy on your growing family. Here is to recovery all around.
