I’ve had this vision sketched out for nearly a year now, waiting for the right client to come along, as well as my new Pearland photography studio to be completed following our move to Houston. I’d previously seen these elaborate ceiling drops done for an upscale wedding reception – the flowers and long crystal “chains” were centered above each table creating a wash of gorgeous color and elegance. So, I thought to myself, how hard could it be? Three days, some fishing wire and many, many 3M Command hooks later, I found out. Ha!
The poppy gown is a vintage slip I picked up two years ago at a resale shop and this is the first time it’s been used in a session. I have a large collection of vintage slips, camisoles, skirts and other items perfect for new moms and moms-to-be. I squealed when I realized it fit her like a glove. Even more so, when I realized she loved it, too.
I really can’t imagine a more lovely mama-to-be at the center of this very Spring-themed set. This was a studio maternity session designed to capture those final “feel good” weeks of pregnancy before they welcome their daughter. In addition to the bright, light and airy feel of the white set and the blush-on-pink flowers, we also photographed a series of moodier, more “boudoir-like” shots wearing black lingerie against a deep gray set and lighting designed to illuminate the curves of her belly. I remember mom saying to me in our pre-session consult that she feels really proud of her body (as she should!). That feeling is something I wish for any woman, but especially one doing the miraculous job of growing another human being.
I can honestly say their baby girl doesn’t stand a chance, but to be beautiful (inside and out), confident, smart and immeasurably loved.
Enjoy a few of my favorites from their maternity session. And, if you’re expecting or know someone who is, be sure to visit my NEW! studio page to see photos and all of the perks of choosing the KB Studio for your maternity and/or newborn photography.
