Morning Maternity Photos | Brookline Pregnancy Portraits

Location scouting for an early morning Brookline Maternity Session

When I was pregnant with my kids, I never really thought about maternity photos.  Now, I wish I had taken a few decent photographs of myself since another baby is not a reality.  Maternity photographers usually suggest taking photos around the 7 month mark.  Around that time, women are obviously pregnant and still feeling well.  As the due date gets closer, the body starts to feel uncomfortable and some, but not all, might feel too big, awkward, etc. With my first pregnancy, I felt great right up until the birth, but with my second my body ached towards the end and photos were not a priority.

It was lovely to meet up with this client again for maternity pictures.  I have photographed them a few times over the last two years –  first birthday party and family photos  – and I’ll be taking newborn photos for them, too.  Because of my schedule, the only available time I had was early on a Sunday morning before I left on vacation.  Due to the time, we decided to meet up near their home in Brookline. Although I love Brookline, I haven’t spend that much time exploring the area for session spots.  So, one morning I decided to go location scouting and visited every green space within a 5 minute drive from them.

My last stop was Griggs Park, which I fell in love with.  The way the morning light filters in through the trees works really well, and almost as important was that the playground was hidden from view.  If you know anything about children and playgrounds, you’ll completely understand what I’m taking about. There is no way you can drag a child from a playground for a photo session unless the session is about being at the playground.

Fall Maternity Session | Boston Maternity Photographer

It is always so nice when you can do something for a friend.  I first met this family when they were pregnant with their first over three years ago when I took maternity and newborn photos for them and then a family session when their daughter was one years old.  Our daughters are a few months a part and we became friends after that.  I was so excited for them with this pregnancy.  http://www.bafphotography.com/mom-daughter-spring-portraits-arlington-ma-family-photographer/

We met up at one of my favorite places in Belmont.  This three year old has so much joy, energy and love for her parents.  It was wonderful to capture it for them.

Sometimes people aren’t sure if they want pregnancy photos.  It is definitely a personal preference but I will say it is something I didn’t do but wish I had.  I’m not sure why but I don’t have too many photographs of myself pregnant.  For newborn clients, I offer a discounted mini session.  It is a time for us to get to know each other, and if you have younger children, it is an opportunity for them to get acquainted with me and to feel special with their parents.

An Evening in the Backyard with Family {Bedford MA Family Photographer}

This past fall I met up with Bedford family at their home for a fall family photography session.  We opted to have the session in the backyard where we had beautiful scenery and some beautiful light.  At the time mom was pregnant with her third child, who I just photographed  a month ago.  She wanted the focus of the session to be on the family and her maternity belly.  Her youngest, who was around 2 years old, had a blast running around and playing catch with her dad.  It was wonderful to come back a a few months later and see the kids so in love with their baby sister.
