Ciara came over for her maternity photography session on a beautiful summer day from Groton, NY. Believe it or not, she was exactly at her 35 week mark with her baby boy Troy! How dainty is she?! 🙂 I’ve been wanting to do a pinup up maternity session for quite some time, so when I suggested it and Ciara got all exited, it was a dream shoot in the works already! So we had some fun in the studio with some cool vintage set ups, and even did the iconic Rosie the Riveter pose, but with a belly. So, if you’re expecting, don’t forget, no matter how hard it can get, you can do it! 🙂
After that we decided to hop outside for some cool, relaxed, boho type shots along a river bank and in a beautiful, golden wheat field. And in the end, we whipped out the flow y white goodness for a bit of whimsy.
She graciously let me take a before picture to show you the fun we had with hair and makeup, so I get to start with that little nugget below. I did a classic pinup look, but opted for a hair style that would be easily transformed. We just took the hair down, loosened up those curls, and replaced the bold red lip with a softer, mauve pink, and taa-daa – two completely different looks complementing each location.
Pregnancy sessions are just such a special experience, I absolutely love sharing this moment with the parents-to-be. Nothing can replicate the smile an expecting mother or the proud father have when they looks down at that belly 🙂 And I am happy to announce baby Troy is now born, after giving his mom a bit of a hard time, but they’re both beautiful and healthy and enjoying life!
