Outdoor Maternity Sessions

Stunning Outdoor Maternity Sessions

So many outdoor locations and so little time.

 When I am photographing outdoor maternity sessions, I am looking for the light. The light is going to make or break an image! All of the locations here at the studio are gorgeous. There is a 4 acre pond, apple orchard, walking paths, country roads, tall grassy fields and the sweet horses at the front gate. I am so fortunate to have such a large area to use for outdoor photo sessions.

One of the outdoor locations is the pond.

The vintage outdoor tub is a precious location for maternity milk bath sessions.

The fields are amazing locations.

Argo my sweet old horse is another fun addition to maternity photos.

If you scroll through these images you’ll see amazing l-i-g-h-t! I am constantly watching the light here at the studio and I can tell you where the best light is at any given time of the day. There it is….the secret sauce….light 🙂

Knowing how to see the light and use the light is the trait of a photographer’s eye. I plan my outdoor time according to the light first and other conditions factor in as secondary thoughts.
