Shooting maternity pictures was one of the greatest and most special days for me. Baby boy was kicking and playing along. It was like he was already posing for the pics 🙂 Kacy and I had so much fun planning, althoough I did the majority of it! LOL. He let me take care of most of the details, like picking our photographer, to the location, to the feel of the shoot. These details were very important to me. Our wedding photos are so magical and I wanted our maternity photos to feel just the same. I am so completely thrilled with what was captured that I wanted to share some ideas and suggestions with you!!
Capturing my pregnancy on film has been very important to me. This moment flies by and I wanted to make sure that we had the most beautiful photos to cherish. That’s why a professional shoot was a must! I’ve taken a ton of pictures during my pregnancy, but doing a professional photo shoot insured that I would accomplish the look and feel of the shoot that I was going for. Our photographer, Dustylu Photography completely captured my vision and helped us achieve what we were looking for! She chose Maravilla Gardens as our location. I expressed to her the look and the feel of what I was going for, and she said she knew of the perfect place. I wanted the shoot to feel surreal and charming and full of life. The gardens are stunning and offer just that. One of the locations reminded me of a charming farmhouse. And there’s an actual cabbage patch!
How perfect is this for a maternity shoot?! When I looked at the website I was completely sold. It was exactly what I had in mind!
We decided to do the photo shoot pretty last minute. As this month is getting pretty busy with my two baby showers and traveling home to Arizona for one of them. So we decided it would be on Saturday, I went into Motherhood Maternity and found a great outfit, and started to plan the look and feel of the shoot! I mapped out how I wanted my make up and hair to look, as well as putting about five other outfits together to complete the feel of what I wanted.
