Going From Two To Three

When clients go from a family of two to three, I just am so honored to get to photograph their Denver maternity portraits. I photographed Megan and Teddy’s winter Evergreen engagement photography and then their beautiful Garden of the Gods wedding. Now, we did their maternity photos at Wash Park on a beautiful summer evening.

To see Megan glowing and beautiful, and an about-to-be mom is wonderful. They are both so excited!

We met in Denver’s Wash Park on a perfect summer night after a rainstorm. The sun came out, the trees and grass were glowing and glistening – a pretty idyllic scene. Megan’s floral dress fit right in and was so pretty!

Choosing To Do Maternity Portraits

Maternity portraits capture a special time in your life that in reality is really short (although it never feels like that when you’re actually pregnant!). The memory will fade of your growing belly after you’ve had your baby. Plus, to get to show your child that this is what Mom looked like when he was in there is pretty cool. My own kids are fascinated with seeing those photos in their photo album.

It’s also a nice way for the couple to re-connect and remember that it starts with the two of them. I love being able to photograph Denver maternity portraits at your home or an outdoor location, or a combination of the two.

Making Mama Look Good For Her Denver Maternity Portraits

It can be so hard figuring out what to wear, especially for first time moms. That’s why I have some dress options for you to choose from, if you want. The colors are pretty, and the shapes are flattering for those bumps!

I also offer hair and makeup for you. This is to give your natural beauty some oomph! The goal is NOT for you to have a face full of makeup and feel unnatural. I promise, the makeup artist will do only as much as you want.

Maternity Photography Options

When a woman inquires about Denver maternity portraits, they are generally on the fence about doing the photos in the first place. They’re feeling bigger than usual, but want to remember this short, special time. Often, they also want the session to be short.

Maternity sessions take about 45 minutes to an hour, at the location of your choice. I recommend doing them when you are 28-34 weeks pregnant. Any farther along and you just feel too big, not into it and there’s the risk you could go early.

A maternity session is a perfect complement to a newborn session or the first year package so you get the whole story from pregnancy through first birthday!
