An adventuring mama
Seattle adventure maternity photography is a bit of a new niche. I feel like sometimes booking a maternity session can feel really overwhelming, especially if you have also booked a newborn session. I do really think that both are really important. I wasn’t always the happiest pregnant lady but I am sad I never did a maternity session for myself. The only photos I have are the ones my husband snapped of me with his cell phone and a few with my big camera if I dressed up for something.
Because I LOVE adventuring, I was so excited this mama was up for a little drive to the gorgeous Salt Creek Recreation Area. There is something magical about pairing a lovely expectant mama & a gorgeous backdrop. If you have booked a newborn session with me, I always give a discount on maternity sessions.
When to book
The first question that most moms ask is WHEN to book a maternity session. Most sessions are booked between 29-33 weeks. It all depends on how you feel. You don’t want to shoot too early when your belly is small but you also don’t want to be able to move around freely so I have found that the 29-33 week timeframe usually works out really well.
What to wear
You will see that most of the mamas I photograph wear flowy dresses. I want to be clear that you do not have to wear a dress BUT wearing a dress provides a really nice flow and movement to the shots. I love to capture soon to be mamas spinning and twirling through their last months of pregnancy. If you book with me, I will work with you to find just the right outfit.
