“There are no rules of motherhood, you make them as you go
The physical pain will soon subside and love will bloom and grow
You bandage all the boo boos and nurse them when they’re sick
And help them learn the lessons and hope the good ones stick.”
Los Angeles Maternity Photography
One of my biggest regrets was not getting maternity portraits done when I was pregnant. I didn’t feel so glamorous and didn’t think the camera would do me any favors. What a pity the things we tell ourselves. We are growing humans with our body. Let that sentence really sink in. We are amazing and our body is a beautiful and complex machine. Women and the swell of their bellies deserve to be photographed. Don’t let your inner dialogue tell you anything but how truly special you are.
I am a Los Angeles maternity and birth photographer offering maternity portrait sessions in my North Hollywood studio or outdoors, with makeup and hair artists that will come to us and pamper you so you are ready for your closeup. I offer stand alone maternity portraits sessions as well as petite sessions that are a discount add-on to your birth story package.
Your maternity photography session can be anything you envision from jeans and a tee shirt to elegant maternity dresses. Here are some helpful links to clothing options. Mama Bump Rentals has a pretty amazing selection of maternity gowns made for photography that you can rent at various price points. One of my favorite places is Chicaboo. These dresses are dynamite and look beautiful on film! If you are an Amazon shopper, there are some really great buys if you type in “maternity photography gowns” or click here.
