Maternity portraits are one of my favorite sessions. I love capturing the sense of love, hope, and optimism that comes with waiting for baby.
I met this cute couple at Eno River State Park in Durham for their maternity photos. Their baby boy is due in a few weeks and it was the perfect time to capture their relationship before they embark on this new adventure called parenthood.
During their consultation, L. said she preferred a natural scene like a field of tall grass. I suggested Eno River State Park because it has several natural areas near the parking area. We were able to get a variety of backgrounds without much walking.
Thinking about maternity portraits? Here’s a few tips:
- The best time for maternity portraits is 34-36 weeks pregnant.
- Solid colored dresses look best.
- Get a manicure because hand placement is more important in maternity photography.
