I shot Theresa’s fine art maternity photography session a few weeks ago. And by “fine art” I mean, “taking your clothes off in front of the camera while looking beautiful and stylish.” It’s my own personal definition and although fine art is not limited to this at all, it is how I might differentiate this from a maternity photography session at say, the beach, with say, clothes on. We even mixed in a little boudoir photography. Fun change of pace for me and I do highly recommend you brave ladies out there do something like this for your husband (oh yeah and you don’t need to be pregnant). I’ve shot this type of maternity photography only a few times and usually you would not see them on the blog but Theresa has seen and approved the photos I’m putting up here. She had great ideas for what she wanted and after exploring a few location options (I really didn’t feel like my studio suited the rest of the style she was going for), I asked my friend Courtney if we could use her parent’s old schoolhouse in Palm Bay, Florida and she said yes! Thank you Courtney! I shot Theresa and Joe’s engagement and wedding photography as well which you can see here. I’ve said it once (or several times) and I’ll say it again – there is nothing better than following a person or family through the stages of life, the greatest moments, the times you call a professional photographer to capture. This is why I cannot specialize in just one photography genre (other than people, I definitely specialize in people.) Theresa looked beautiful… We even finished up with some mud and football.
These first two are some of my very favorite maternity portraits.
Joe is such a sweet guy and so cooperative!!
Love this too and LOVE the football! How could we have been more lucky! It was a muddy, rainy day!!
