Suzy | Styled Maternity Session | Golden Hour | Champaign County
The glow of an expectant mother is only closely rivaled by the glow of the "golden hour sun." They are both magical in their own special way. One glows with the promise and hope of new life, and the other with the hope and promise of a beautiful evening and of a new day to come.
Suzy is a crazy talented fellow photographer and expecting her 4th child (yep, you read that right #4, "cuatro" as he's currently referred to, she looks stunning and it's OK if you hate her a little). I was thrilled when she agreed to model for me to help get the word out about that awesomeness that is maternity sessions and prayed that the night of our session would bring some gorgeous golden light!
Maternity sessions are an ideal way to capture and reflect the time right before your child is born. These sessions can be just for mom, or include dad and older siblings. They are typically 30 minute sessions, allowing just enough time to capture a variety of memories, while still leaving room in the budget for newborn photos once baby arrives. Scheduling your session an hour to hour and a half before sunset gives us the most potential for yummy golden light that is not only beautiful, but most flattering!
Don't know what to wear? No problem! I have a variety of maternity dresses in various designs, colors and sizes, available for you to borrow for your session - I even have many options for children from 6 months to size 10 to wear! Suzy is wearing a beautiful off the shoulder dress that is new to my collection. Contact me here for more information on maternity sessions and more!
