I’m so happy to share images from a recent sunset maternity session in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado. This stunning couple is expecting their first child, and is also a member of the Paige Forden Heirloom Collection — I’ll soon get to photograph their sweet new baby this fall. Until then, let’s swoon over the film from our time together.
As you know, I love to photograph expectant Mothers… I think they are probably my favorite subject. Don’t get me wrong, I adore children and newborns, but Mother’s are the best listeners! *wink* They take direction beautifully, and I’m able to see them connect on a different level with the child they’re carrying — from the perspective of my lens. That honor is never lost on me.
Pregnancy is dynamic, but deserves to be celebrated. I find these sessions incredibly romantic, intimate and slow. Every hand placement, hairpiece, angle, and step is very intentional from my point of view. It creates a comfortable environment for you and your partner (Dad’s love to know exactly what to do with their hands!), and gives you flattering, timeless images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
During this session, we explored one of my favorite secluded spots in Cherry Hills Village. It’s lush and private (I’m sometimes greeted with a horseback rider or handful of bunnies), but also very close to central Denver. We’d rescheduled this session once before due to rain, but were graced with the most lovely summer evening for our new date! One of Mom’s dresses is her own, and the second is borrowed from my studio wardrobe collection.
If you’re considering a maternity session ahead of your newborn portraits, I would love to chat with you about different options. I also offer in-studio photographs, which can feel more intimate. I discuss the benefits of a studio maternity session in this blog post.
All images were photographed on Kodak Portra 400 Professional Film on a Contax 645, developed and processed by Richard Photo Lab. Are you ready to schedule your portrait session? Connect with me and I’ll create a luxurious photography experience customized to you and your family.
