We were so blessed to capture quite a few expecting parents at their maternity photo sessions and their newborns upon their arrival this year. We know the importance of capturing the beauty of expecting in maternity photo sessions. We strive to personalize the experience for each couple, and we do the same for the following newborn photo shoot.
We recommend between 32 and 36 weeks in your pregnancy for best results. Most women aren't showing quite enough so we can capture that gorgeous baby bump in all its glory before 32 weeks, and many women feel uncomfortable after 36 weeks. Posing can be more challenging. However all moms carry differently, and some prefer to do a little sooner or later.
What is more beautiful than photos of an expectant mom during the golden hour? We love capturing mom-to-be's glow with the backdrop of a breath-taking sunset. Our favorite beach, Sand Key Beach in Clearwater, is the perfect location to capture maternity photos you'll treasure for many years to come and will be shared for generations.
And to achieve our goal of keeping every expectant mom and dad comfortable, we will also come to your home to capture your maternity photos. These can be the most intimate maternity photos, and we feel blessed our clients trust us to document such a special time in their lives in a beautiful way regardless of the location.
Below are a few examples of maternity photos we captured this year at parks. Being Tampa photographers, we're blessed with the riches of so many gorgeous locations, here are the locations for the photos below: Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, Jay B. Starkey Park in New Port Richey, Sand Key Park in Clearwater and Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs.
And we are always happy to get the call baby has finally arrived, and it is time for their first photo session - their newborn photos. We offer multiple photo location options: our studio, clients' homes or we even do some newborn photography at parks.
We recommend doing newborn photo sessions when baby is between 7-14 days old. During this time, baby will typically sleep during most of your newborn photo shoot. However, we do newborn sessions for little ones quite a bit older as well. We always want to accommodate parents comfort level, and we have a plenty of ideas to capture baby at anytime.
