“It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.” ~ HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW
Last night I photographed this beautiful mom-t0-be surrounded by all that Mother Nature offers in Oconee County, GA. I absolutely adore outdoor maternity photography as I feel it is a fitting backdrop to highlight the miracle and glow of pregnancy. I instantly knew this location would be the perfect spot for this couple’s portraits as she had mentioned how she was drawn to a pregnancy photo that I took at a location in St. Louis that had water cascading down large stones. This area in Oconee County is a dream with it’s beautiful glow, cool water and picturesque surroundings. Even though it’s been a hot summer, last night was very comfortable and the greenery was full and lush on the banks of the river.
This glowing mom-to-be selected the perfect wardrobe for her maternity portraits. Great example of what to wear. This is not a maternity gown, but it worked perfectly with how it showed off her beautiful bump and figure. The pleats’ texture added some texture and the color highlighted her hair, skin tone and complimented the natural hues in Mother Nature.
I am so excited to meet their baby in a few weeks! This couple is so in love with each other and their child who is about to enter the world. Many wonderful days ahead full of excitement, fun and adventure. Such an honor to photograph the beginning of their next phase of life.
