Outdoor maternity photos capture the beauty of a mother with child in gorgeous, golden light.
We met the incredibly amazing and talented Lexy of the Proper blog at an event she organized in Denver called Eat, Drink, Create. Her warm-sunshiny smile, bright eyes, and all together loveliness made it so easy to get to know her. Kindred spirits, soul-sisters, besties-by-destiny…whatever you want to call it, after talking with her, I knew we had to shoot maternity photos of her. <3
Outdoor maternity photos were not something she was planning on doing, much to my surprise. She was seven months pregnant, glowing with that magical mama-to-be glow, but still felt a little bit uneasy in general about having her photo taken. If anything, she was thinking of doing maternity photos at home, but we convinced her to take a short drive from Denver to this beautiful spot.
In her own adorable words, she wrote, “If you have ever tried to take a serious photo of me, you know that it is an almost impossible task. I say inappropriate things. I start to sweat. My face starts to twitch. Seriously. I’m a hot mess when the camera is on me and only me.”
But when I look at Lexy’s outdoor maternity photos, I see the same brilliant, beautiful, and spirited woman I met at a park event while on vacation in Denver. Lexy is a special soul, and it absolutely shows in these portraits of her at such a wonderful moment in her life.
This session was also featured on The Little Umbrella (formerly On to Baby).
We are so extremely humbled by the amazing testimonial Lexy wrote about You Look Lovely on her blog! Check out her sweet words here!
