Perfect Baby Bump|Richmond Maternity Photographer

A perfect baby bump.  I try to take maternity images when the bump is just that…perfect!

As a Richmond, Virginia Maternity Photographer, I love when clients want to do something a little different. When Courtney wanted to do photos on the James River in Richmond I was excited. When I showed up, I was a little nervous…let’s just say I was happy to have business insurance during this session!

I just love everything about this session! The couple, her dress, the setting and her gorgeous crown made by a local florist. Everything came together for a perfect maternity session.

This stunning mama-to-be contacted me back in December to book her Maternity and Newborn Session.  She booked these sessions in December for a May Maternity Session and an August  Newborn Session.  This mama is a planner! Which makes my job much easier.   A little advice, book early!

As a Richmond, Virginia Maternity Photographer and a mom of three, I know when that bump is perfect! I typically shoot Maternity Sessions between 32-35 weeks. I have done sessions earlier and I actually did one Maternity Session four days before a mom delivered, but 32-35 weeks is ideal. At that point, you are still comfortable and your bump is rounded and perfect to show off. I also get asked, “Who is included in the session?” My answer, immediate family and that includes the furry kind. Maternity clients like to include their “first baby”, usually of the furry nature, in their session.  I am more than happy to make that happen. As a Pinehurst Maternity Photographer, I know all the perfect session locations for furry family members, too.
