Anna L. | Portland Maternity Photographer

I captured Anna in her last month of pregnancy as she awaits the birth of her second daughter.  I asked her to bring in her favorite maternity outfit and she brought in this perfect, flowy, awesome dress that she said she wore on New Year’s Eve and a couple other occasions during her pregnancy.  I love it when people bring in objects or clothing that have sentimental value or lots of personality, because I feel like that’s what you will want to remember about yourself in the years to come!  I think it’s especially perfect for a maternity session because you will want at least one fully-clothed shot to share with your soon-to-be-born child.

I think for a lot of women it’s a sublime joy and a pleasure to near the end of a pregnancy.  This might be because they are uncomfortable, or sometimes they are simply excited to meet their baby.  Regardless, the sense of accomplishment and joy always shows in a maternity portrait.

I just love these mamas!  This is quickly becoming one of my very favorite types of portrait to shoot, second only to newborn portraits!  Speaking of which, I am currently looking for a newborn, birthday between January 15-25th, for a portfolio shoot next weekend.  Contact me if you are interested!
