Carolina and Marks maternity session was a nice and relaxed photoshoot, walking through a whimsical forest of Eucalyptus trees in La Jolla, California. Being first time parents, they were eagerly anticipating the birth of their baby boy, all ready to go! Their maternity pictures were just about the last thing they had planned to do before welcoming their baby into the world.
Having the stress of trying to get everything together before your baby comes can be a distraction from more fun things like having your photos taken. One thing I do is not only help my clients prepare for their session before the shoot but make everything nice and relaxing during the shoot.
A few helpful tips when planning for your maternity photos:
- Plan outfits before the day of your session
- Give yourself PLENTY of time for hair/make up, whether having it professionally done or doing it yourself
- Put together a bag of things that will be helpful at your shoot like a brush, hairspray, flip flops (if you are wearing heels and will be walking around)
- Talk with photographer about any worries you're having or ask questions, it doesn't hurt to ask!
Hopefully these tips will be helpful for you in preparing for your maternity photo session or any session for that matter!

I had a great time walking around Balboa Park and photographing these two days (literally) before they officially became parents and welcomed their little girl into their family! Pregnancy and the whole delivery rarely goes as planned and how we envision which led to the decision of having the exact day their little one would enter this world! Their little girl was tiny but cute and healthy!
