Hope everyone is enjoying the Texas summer! Yes, it’s a little warm, but we found ways to beat the heat for this maternity photo shoot. And it turned out so beautifully!

Indoor/Outdoor Maternity Photo Shoot

Outdoor sessions are totally possible, even in the height of summer. I generally schedule my outdoor sessions for either sunrise or sunset anyway, just because the light is better. And sunrise is pleasantly cool, even during the summertime.

For this session, we did a combination indoor/outdoor. Best of both worlds! There’s a field right by my photography studio, so that’s where we did the outdoor portion of this maternity photo shoot. The light was beautiful, the greens and golds were perfect–even some of the dried leaves gave us some great color to work with. Mom and Dad were both able to join, and I’m excited to meet their little one very soon!

Doing some of the session outdoors also gave us a chance to include another important family member: their adorable doggy! He did a great job and even came all dressed up in his bow tie. Too cute! I’m sure he’s going to be an awesome “big brother.”

During our time in the studio we did lots of backlit photos. These are a great option if you don’t want a lot of props or you just really want to zero in on highlighting the photography subject. Lighting is everything in professional photography–and backlit photos play that up beautifully. That being said, I can’t take all the credit for that gorgeous glow mom has–isn’t she stunning?

I’m already looking forward to seeing this wonderful couple again very soon. They’ve scheduled an at-home lifestyle photography session for after baby arrives, and I can’t wait! Pregnancy is such an exciting time, and I love the opportunity to help parents capture it with beautiful, timeless artwork. What an amazing maternity photo shoot! I loved every minute, and I’m counting down the days until mom is due!
