Maternity Boudoir in Pennsylvania

There is nothing more beautiful than an expecting mother who wants to celebrate her changing body. When we mix boudoir and maternity, we are creating a session for you to embrace all the amazing things you are. This session gives me chills. This momma to be was so confident and comfortable with herself that we both found ourselves so in awe of the images we created together.

Why do boudoir maternity?

Bringing life into this world is incredible by itself, but when it’s coupled with recognizing the beauty of pregnant bodies, well, there really are no words. It is just incredible! With all the maternity photoshoots I’m privileged to do, I see women who are both extremely confident and some who may not be as confident. Believe me when I tell you that all pregnant bodies deserve to be praised and admired. These are once in a lifetime moments and should be captured. Part of my job is making sure you feel confident and beautiful. We will work together to make sure you have the boudoir maternity photoshoot of your dreams.

Let’s Head Outside

These outdoor photos were not originally part of the plan, but I am so glad she asked for them. You can never go wrong with a classic gown, nature, and a pregnant belly. Taking pictures outdoors provides such a different atmosphere that it’s almost like a completely different session. I encourage all sessions, maternity or not, to head outside and get some photographs worth remembering.

Boudoir, Black & White, and Backlit

If you’re not sure how special I think pregnant bodies are, I’ll say it again. They are simply incredible! These backlit photos are some of my favorites from this session. The backlight creates both shadows and highlights that would otherwise go unseen. They give the body a gorgeous outline and showcases the sexy and romantic side of this time in your life.

Maternity Looks

No matter your comfort level, I have a wardrobe full of options. From full ball gowns, angel wings, wraps, and jackets, I have something for you. We will play with colors and textures to highlight only what you want shown. Between the wardrobe, hair and makeup, we will make you look and feel as gorgeous as we know you are.

I would love to help you create the maternity session of your dreams! I am here to answer any of questions and to make you feel as beautiful as possible. Take a look at my past blogs, Instagram, and portfolio for ideas for your own photoshoot.

Your Perfect Maternity Shoot

One of the questions I get asked the most is when is the best time to have a maternity session. It’s a good question. While I recommend between 32 and 36 weeks, or even as early as 28 weeks, it all depends on how you are feeling and showing. Whether you know exactly what you want out of your maternity session or you aren’t so sure, I’ve put together a few of my favorite tips to get the most of your session.

Maternity Photoshoot Tips

Pamper Yourself – this is the perfect time to get your hair & your nails done. I even recommend getting a massage beforehand so you are plenty relaxed. I have a very detailed prep document I send to all my clients detailing what to do to prepare for your photography session. We offer full hair and makeup for your session, as well as full styling advice together with an entire maternity wardrobe.

Be Sentimental – if you have a special blanket, baby toy, or even something from your own childhood you would like included in your maternity photoshoot, please bring it. I love it when clients bring cherished items. It makes the photoshoot that much more special!

Try Different Looks – one of the best things about the photos I’ve included on this blog is all the different outfits she used. No matter what you choose to wear, I just want to make sure you are comfortable. We can talk about different outfits and looks before your session to make sure we plan your dream maternity session!

Family – you don’t have to, but consider including your partner and other children in your maternity photoshoot. These are once in a lifetime memories that you are all a part of.

Ask Questions – finding the right photographer can be challenging. We will talk about what kind of look(s) you’re after, what you’re comfortable with, and what I can do to help the process. I want your session to be perfect for you and will do whatever I can to make that happen.

Picture Perfect Photoshoot

When thinking about when to have your session, keep in mind how much you want to be showing. You also want to consider how far along you will be. The closer you are to the due date, you may be more uncomfortable, and the baby might decide to come early.

Maternity photoshoots are all about celebrating you, your body, and this next stage of your life. Whether your session is in a studio, outdoors, elegant, or intimate, I know we can create the maternity photoshoot of your dreams.

Please reach out with any questions. Feel free to browse my instagram and portfolio for outfit, pose, or location ideas. I cannot wait to make some new memories with you!

Family Maternity in Doylestown

This glowing mom reached out and asked if we could coordinate her maternity and newborn photo shoots. She wanted similar lighting and backgrounds in both shoots, which I loved! Color coordinating and planning maternity & newborn sessions are one of my favorite things to do. Using a lot of whites, light pinks and mauve, as well as plenty of texture, we were able to create the family photographs of her dreams.

A Mother’s Vision

One of the things I liked most about this shoot was that mom wanted a little bit of everything. She asked for all white backlit images, gorgeous white angel wings, outdoor sunset shots, and large textured rugs. She walked into each session with a specific vision and plan. These photographs are not just a representation of her style, but also of the amount of attention and love that we put in to plan this session.

Every client who books with SugaShoc Photography gets a personalized consultation planning session where we go over each and every detail of their session. We go over shots they love, colors they love, outfits for the whole family, and any other ideas they may have. This consultation meeting is so important because we want to make sure that each and every image that we create is a work of art.

A Family’s Bond

Newborn photo shoots are never complete without sharing the lens with the family. When she came with her older daughter, and mother, I got so excited. Multi generational photographs are incredibly special. They show how important family is and how much love there is to go around.

Mom’s Time To Shine

As important as showing off the entire family is, we had to make sure we captured mom’s own beauty. Every move she made was just so graceful that it was easy to tell she truly enjoys being pregnant. Her demeanor was passed down to her two daughters as well. Both the oldest and newborn were just so easy to work with. The baby was a joy to work with and let us position her so we could get the perfect shot.

When the whole family left my studio, I had to take a moment to myself to reflect how extraordinary the session was. They were all different people and different ages, but they all treasured each other. I know these children will be raised in a home full of love, laughter, and respect.

Newborn and Siblings in Bucks County

This was one of those newborn baby and family sessions where even though we had a plan going in, we had to adjust as we went. As soon as the family arrived, the older brother made it very clear he did not want to be there. Like I said, it didn’t go exactly as planned, but at the end of the session, we still got some pretty adorable photos.

Sleepy Baby Boy

We started with just the newborn baby boy since he was pretty sleepy, which was perfect! I have to tell you, this little boy let me do just about anything I wanted to. He never even opened his eyes or made a peep! Mom and dad chose some lighter browns and creams to wrap him up in. I was pretty excited when they asked to use the nightcap because it is one of my favorite accessories. This little boy was just amazing the entire time.

Some Newborn Family Love

Next we went into family photos. I cannot stress enough how much you will enjoy these photos for years to come. Rotating between just mom and dad, mom and siblings, and everyone together, it was pretty obvious how much this little family adores each other. Family pictures like this can be challenging, but I have to give credit to mom and dad. They kept their calm and tried as hard as they could to keep their babies happy.

Newborns and Their Siblings

When it came time for sibling pictures, we knew we were in for a challenge. As amazing as it would be to have everyone smiling and happy in all the pictures, I think it’s equally special to show just how unsuspecting and ‘real’ kids can be. For me, it’s always fun to capture an upset kid every once in a while because that’s who they are. It’s just kids being kids. We did manage to get an incredibly sweet photo of all the kids happy, sitting on a bed. It was the perfect last shot!

A Little Something Personal for Your Session

For this boudoir session, the bride was planning on giving these photographs to her fiancé on their wedding day. When she first arrived, she was a little nervous, as most women are. But once we got going, it was amazing to see how relaxed and confident she became. This woman is meant to be in front of the camera.

I love it when the client brings some personal touches to include in their session. This gorgeous gal brought along her wedding veil, which was ended being perfect piece for a little ‘behind the scenes’ shot. Her fiancé was a huge Eagles fan so we used the studio’s Philadelphia Eagles shirt to show her support! All clients are welcome to bring their own items, but they also have access to my boudoir closet that has just about everything.

I know that boudoir can be scary for most women, but I also know from 10 years of shooting boudoir that once the session starts, those fears just melt away. This bride is proof of that! Whether she was in nothing but a cowboy hat, or posed against a chair in a corset, she looked incredible! She walked in excited and nervous, but left with the biggest smile on her face.
