Maternity Photos, Cravings, Cookies & Milk
When I saw a photo with a pregnant mom indulging in her pregnancy cravings, I KNEW I had to have one of my maternity clients do a similar shoot. But, not surprisingly, I had to put my more “glamorous” spin on it by doing a custom maternity photo shoot.
What’s better than having a pregnant, glowing, mom-to-be in a fur coat with a hat eating some Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies? Adding a chocolate milk martini of course!
I just love how in some of these shots you can really feel the “sass” coming from Meg! If you know Megan, you know that she is a badass boss babe with a little bit of sass to go along with her charm. Here are a few of my favorites from this part of her session.
We also wanted to do some more traditional belly silhouette images for her to print and display as an art piece in her nursery. Here are the shots we took and you can see how great it looks hanging on the wall. Can you guess what size this canvas wrap is? Size of hanging wall art can be deceiving.
What glowing, mother-to-be doesn’t want to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel?
Thanks to these couture, custom made, ostrich feather wings that I had made by the incredible Leah Maria Couture, Meg could be!
I just loved how these shots came out. The wings, her glowing skin, and the greenery of the backyard made the perfect combination.
I like to have my client's provide testimonials after their shoot because I think that it makes a big difference to potential clients to hear directly what it is like to have a session with me. Here is what Meg had to say about her session.
My maternity shoot with Dawn was one the best experiences and exceeded any expectations I ever had! Dawn had taken my professional headshots for my real estate business and we immediately had a great connection. She is so easy to feel comfortable with and has an amazing sense of humor, which is so important when you’re 8 months pregnant in front of a camera! She was inspired by this concept and had asked me if I would be willing to do something similar with her, I didn’t even think twice (the concept matched one of my pregnancy cravings anyways)!
As a first time mom, I wasn’t prepared for the comments from the general public about my baby bump and size- you wouldn’t even believe some of the things random strangers feel comfortable saying to you. I’m sure most women who have been pregnant know exactly what I’m talking about! Seeing Dawn and doing this shoot gave me so much empowerment and confidence I had been lacking since getting the wrath of the general public. I never felt so beautiful or sexy pregnant as I did during my session with Dawn!
I would highly recommend any soon-to-be moms, whether it’s your first or fourth pregnancy – to be creative and have one of these shoots. Just you, your bump, and Dawn showing off the miracle that women can only handle! In all reality, it is a miracle and blessing to be able to create a human life and carry that life until he/she is strong enough to live in this world on their own! You will not regret doing this shoot, and the happiness you will feel will reflect in your images which you will cherish forever!Meg Davis – May 29, 2019
