Glowing Houston Metro Maternity Session using Dreamlight in the Studio
Just look at this gorgeous dreamlight maternity session! The images have such a soft, ethereal glow...the light literally wraps around Mama from behind and delicately highlights her precious curves.
As we planned her session during our phone consultation, Mama knew that at 38 weeks she did not want to go hiking in the woods or deal with the Texas July heat for a sunset session. The studio was her jam. She wanted a little pampering and definitely some A/C.
We started with a full face makeup application by Blackbird Beauty | Houston MUA. This fabulous Mama requested something a little more natural, with just a hint of glam. Raven listened carefully and gave her EXACTLY what she wanted!
She wanted images that would compliment her home as she would hang them later, so we decided on a very light and airy theme with a white dress and white background. I chose to place the light behind her, or "dreamlight" her, instead of simply using a white paper background. Coming from behind, the soft, cool light wraps Mama and cradles baby as if in a dream.
We did several poses that focused on Mama and her new little bub, then asked Daddy to join in. He was excited to be part of the session and experience with their new family addition, but he certainly felt a little awkward at first. Most dads do. He listened as I explained how to stand and where to place his hands...that always seems to be the hardest part. It is also the best part. Images with the whole family are always the favorite!
After our session, Mama told me that she didn't believe she could look and feel so beautiful at this point in her pregnancy... but that's a major part of my job - not only to preserve this precious moment in your family's journey, but to help you feel amazing again!
Everyone needs a little pampering at the end of your third trimester. I truly believe that it helps the overall health of your pregnancy. Your state of mind is just as important as your physical health at this time, and just a bit of self-care can really carry you through the last few weeks. A maternity session
can really help deepen the connection between you and your little one, and help solidify a solid, loving foundation on which your family will grow. Please, contact me today
and let's plan yours!
