When McCall walked in the studio for this session he was bright eyed and curious. Like most 2 year olds, he needed a moment to get to know me.  I let him click the shutter a few times and talk to me while he began to be comfortable in the studio.

The truth is 1-3 year olds are complete wildcards in the studio.  But I could tell that McCall’s mama April had read and followed a number of tips in my 11 Ways to Prepare and Young Child for a Photography Session.  McCall warmed up quickly and smiled easily while his mama changed into her gown.

While I do offer wardrobe for all my mama’s in the studio, April chose to bring her own clothing.  And April’s gown was the perfect selection.  In fact, I’m still thinking of convincing her to sell it to me.

The light and airy colors and length are just the perfect compliment to my cream studio.  The dreamy lighting techniques showed off her new mama glow perfectly!

McCall clearly adored his mama.  Their bond over giggles and baby sister’s tummy and sweet hugs was just incredible.

McCall will clearly be the best big brother.

There’s something about pregnancy that simultaneously makes an expecting new feel simultaneously gorgeous and ugly.

Light and Airy Studio Maternity Pictures Simpsonville SC

I think feeling of ugliness comes from so many unmerited comments from friends and strangers.  “Gee!  You’re huge!  When are you due?!” can steal the joy of growing new life from any expecting mama.

When I do a maternity session, I want mama to feel pampered and gorgeous.  I recommend that mama invest in hair and makeup from my friend Katie at Cotton Rogue at Taylors Mill.Timeless Studio Portraits Maternity

 

I also provide mama with an extensive maternity wardrobe to choose from in the studio.  These light and airy pieces are sized to fit a variety of shapes and sizes.  Each item is pinned to fit mama perfectly.

We do sets on our bed, with backlight, and lit from the front.  I love the effect that simply moving a light can have on each image.

This mama’s name is Chelsea. As this baby was number five, she was already tired of hearing the “Are you sure you aren’t having twins?” comments.  She felt so unlovely that she told me that she was sure she would “look awkward” in front of the camera, but this was her last baby and she wanted to remember the miracle of carrying life.

I’m so glad Chelsea chose to have this time memorialized despite her hesitations.  Mama loved the images and couldn’t believe how good she looks!

Chelsea, it was a joy to serve you!

Jessica has the type of quiet strength that speaks volumes about her personality.

She’s easy going and kind, and yet determined.  The kind of lady I hope my precious strong willed girl grows to be.

Lady-Joy wanted to do coffee before booking her newborn session.  So we sat down and talked about the session for about 30 minutes.Indoor Maternity Photography Greenville SC

We found out we had so many similarities: children the same age, worldviews, and fire to change the world.  We kept talking for a good 2 hours!

I love it when clients become good friends before the newborn session even starts!

I like to surprise clients who meet me for coffee with a few maternity images outdoors at the Taylors Mill (because I love Due South Coffee!), but by the time we quit chatting all the sun was gone.

So I took my new friend over to the studio for just a few quick images before saying good-bye.
