I’ve had lots of requests for moody maternity photography lately. In other words, images that are a bit on the darker side and much more dramatic. I definitely can’t complain, as this is probably my favorite way to shoot maternity. There’s just something about a moody image that turns it into a stand alone piece of art. I can envision any of these photos on a large canvas or as a framed photograph in the bedroom or hallway. This past weekend saw this moody trend continue.
When Mom and her two absolutely gorgeous kids came in, I was thrilled to photograph them while they were waiting for baby #3. All three of them were really great to hang out with. The kids had lots of energy, and Mom was just so comfortable (or at least seemed to be) in front of the camera. It made the time pass by really fast.
Our photo session started with a few images of the three of them cuddling nice and close. It was hard to believe that big brother to be hates pictures, because he did so well. We took a couple of posed photos and some more candid ones that showed the three of them interacting. I tried to wrap this up pretty quickly so the kids didn’t lose interest.
After the kids went off to play, we were able to capture some stunning solo portraits. We kept the casual look going at the start and then moved to more dramatic poses and gowns. Mom was beautiful in every outfit she had on, but I have to say that the teal strapless was my favorite.
Here’s a few favorites from the session:
I’m currently booking sessions for early 2018.
