One of my goals for my photography this summer was to build a portfolio of Maine maternity photos not only featuring the beauty of a women’s pregnant body but adding the beauty of the Maine outdoors. I had an incredible belly photo session last Wednesday with Chris, Tabitha and their little girl Hailey. As I was working with Tabitha in preparing for the session I started to get that little tingle that this session might have some portfolio potential. The day of the shoot it was the first day of the heat wave, but there was a nice sea breeze cooling everything down. The humidity was high which will produce haze in the sky, but it also helps produce a very golden light perfect for this type of photography. As the family met me in the parking lot I saw that Tabitha had followed my clothing suggestions perfectly. She also produced a second skirt and top with a matching dress for her daughter that was outstanding for a Maine beach maternity session. All of the planets were aligning for a perfect session. Hailey was the perfect little girl during the session. Just silly enough for some great photos and very well behaved and patient. Thanks guys for an incredible session. I look forward to meeting your new little baby.
