There is nothing more beautiful than a Mommy-to-be! Being pregnant is not easy. It comes with all sorts of aches and pains, indigestion, and mainly feeling “fat” because all you see in the mirror is this big belly. You have these magnificent curves and the pregnancy glow, but all you want to do sometimes is hang out in pjs, and eat Fritos. I know! I’ve been there. 3 times! I wished I had done a maternity session with all 3 of my kids because each pregnancy for me was so different and I looked so different for each one! Unfortunately, “all things that should be memorialized as a special time in a mommy-to-be’s life” was not on my mind. I was concerned with all the rest of “life”! As a Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir Photographer, I want to help you celebrate this joyous moment with a fun Maternity Boudoir Session. Use this time to focus on you, your connection with the baby, and to feel sexy again! Contact me to schedule your Maternity Boudoir Session today.
Here’s a sneak peek into my latest Maternity Boudoir Session.
Sexy Momma – Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir Photographer
I was very excited to do this in-studio Maternity Boudoir Session for my client. She chose to add Hair & Make-up to her Maternity Session package. Adding Hair & Make-up not only feels wonderful as you’re getting pampered but also enhances your beauty for your photography session. Please contact me to inquire about adding Hair & Make-up to your maternity session. She came to my studio and my fabulous beauty team made her look and feel beautiful.
My bedroom studio has beautiful light that pours in from the window, so I like to start my sessions there. Since this was a Maternity Boudoir session, I focused on making her feel beautiful and sexy. She looked gorgeous posed laying on my studio bed wearing just her black bra and underwear. This pose is a great way to show off your pregnancy curves. For ideas on poses for your session, take a peek at my Maternity Portfolio and Pinterest Page. She then posed sitting on the bed with my floral robe draped off her shoulders while she cradled her belly. This robe is from our Studio Wardrobe!
As a Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir Photographer, I wanted to turn her sexiness up a notch by having her posed, kneeling on the bed wearing the studio’s fabulous fishnet stockings. Don’t worry. Once we are done with them, you get to take them home! I also shot the photo looking through the studio’s crystal chandelier and converted it to black-and-white. She looked serene and sultry.
Being a Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir photographer, I always encourage artistic nudes during my boudoir sessions. We always go over your comfort level as we do these sessions so my clients always feel comfortable. She decided she wanted to do nudes to remember what her body looked like naked. Both for her, and her partner. I just love how the natural light shined on her pregnant belly as she laid on the bed. She also looked gorgeous laying on her side as I shot over her. These will be wonderful photos to remember her amazing pregnant body.
My pallet wall is a favorite of mine to shoot against. I love how pretty she looks posed against it, wearing an open jean shirt and black lace underwear. Her lovely smile says so much about how excited she is to be growing this little one in her belly. The white lace dress looks perfect on her, as she leaned against the wall, cradling her growing belly.
Next, we did some poses with some of the items I have in my Boudoir wardrobe. My clients are free to use any of the clothing, accessories or props I have in my wardrobe closet. For examples of Boudoir clothing or accessories SugaShoc Photography has available, please read my Boudoir Blogs. She looked stunning wearing my gold chain necklace over her naked form, showing a perfect side profile of her belly. She also looked sexy in my purple, lace teddy from my Boudoir collection.
Let the Light Shine
Next, we went into my studio to play with some lighting. As a Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir Photographer, I think the naked pregnant body is so beautiful, and I love giving my clients gorgeous photos that capture this moment in their lives. I always think that photos using the back lighting to show off the pregnant silhouette come out amazing.
We had some fun using different wraps and clothing to drape over her arms, exposing her stunning pregnant body. A great pose is using a pieced of material pulled back over the body, showing off the pregnant curves. All these wraps were fabrics in my collection!
(Not) Basic Black
Finally, we played with a few more of my Boudoir clothing pieces. The sweater bodysuit is also an item of SugaShoc’s wardrobe and worked perfectly on her body.
My client brought in a few of her favorite lingerie and clothing pieces to use in her shoot. I always encourage my clients to bring in pieces that they love to wear or make them feel great and sexy. She looked sexy laying on the floor in her black bra and underwear. She showed off her “Calvins“, with a white tank top and dark underwear. Lastly, she posed against my wall with a pair of her jeans unbuttoned.
For the Finale, she wore in my pink tulle dress and posed on the floor. This pose has become a favorite of my clients, and I just love how beautiful they looked surrounded in the beautiful tulle. I have a wide variety of gorgeous maternity gowns and clothes for my clients to use during their sessions. For some examples of available clothes, please take a look at my Maternity Page.
My client was so happy with all her photos, and I was overjoyed that I was chosen to give her this experience, and these photos that she will cherish forever.
Maternity photography sessions are best done between 28-36 weeks when the belly is nice and round and you are still relatively comfortable. These can be done in studio or at an outdoor location of your choice. Please contact me to inquire more about booking your maternity session. I want to give you photographs that you will treasure for a life time, so let me be your Philadelphia Maternity Boudoir Photographer.
