It’s no secret that I LOVE a good outdoor maternity photography session, but its not for everyone! There are so many unknowns that come with booking an outdoor session, maternity or family, you really have to be flexible. I always tell my mamas to pamper themselves for their photos, you know hair, makeup, mani and pedis…..so I get it when mamas decide to hold their session in my studio so that they know for sure what they are getting into. However, there is something about all the amazing elements of outdoor maternity photography that is second to none.
Choosing to have your maternity photography session outside is especially fantastic when you have small children. Because we are outside, there can be running and playing and all the things to keep a busy toddler entertained.
Here in Colorado especially, outdoor maternity photography can give you a million different variations in a short period of time. This particular session had all the weather things, rain, sun, wind and amazing golden light. If you can roll with the punches, I promise you mama, an outdoor maternity photography session is EVERYTHING!
I just love the freeness that an outdoor session gives me to be creative. In the studio, there are only so many different variations of a pose I can do. Being outside for maternity portraits allows me to incorporate the landscape into the posing making each and every session their own.
Outdoor maternity photography sessions are also pet friendly. Well dog friendly anyway! I love incorporating fur babies into photography sessions. A lot of times, they are your first baby and such an important part of your story!
We live in such a beautiful place, I mean it is totally postcard worthy right?!?! To me, it is a shame not to take advantage of it! Yes, the weather here in Colorado is very tricky (especially lately lol), but if you are flexible and willing to go with the flow, I promise it will be worth it!
Thats what we aim for – those swoon worthy images you cant wait to post all over Instagram. Outdoor maternity photography sessions are sure to give you that, tenfold. They will make beautiful canvases for your home too!
I mean, they are absolutely gorgeous if I do say so myself lol! But, if you still need a little more convincing, you can check out my maternity gallery here . My portfolio also showcases some of my favorite studio maternity sessions as well. Both are beautiful in their own way. I love that I am fortunate enough to be able to offer my Mama’s a choice!
Are you expecting or know someone who is? I would LOVE to chat about creating the perfect outdoor maternity photography session! (or indoor if you prefer). You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook!
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
