Maternity sessions and a fresh blanket of snow and a beautiful mix. Miss Erin braved the cold at 38 weeks for a natural snowy backdrop which I love to offer expecting moms as a CNY Maternity Photographer. Though it may be difficult to plan our schedules around the NY weather, I keep my mamas on a close line to let them know we need to do it now while the snow is fresh.

When capturing maternity portraits in the winter and on location, I take the cold into consideration. Expecting moms are usually dressed in a lighter fabric so I will not leave them out of doors for too long. I often go over the poses while they are still dressed in their overcoat before I even tell them where to stand. This eliminates extra minutes of standing there being cold.

And yes, capturing your maternity journey is ‘worth it’. Every pregnancy is different for every mom-to-be. But one of the common factors, is we do not always feel our best. So, dressing yourself up in something flattering and having your hair done is so ‘worth it’ to remember your journey and all the work you put into your pregnancy.

CNY Maternity sessions can be on locations or in studio. I encourage dad and any other children to participate though the focus is always on the mom-to-be. In my client closet, I have several dresses available to wear for the maternity session, so you will not have to spend extra money on an outfit. I encourage maternity sessions to be captured within the 30-34 week mark, when mama’s belly is defined yet she is not too uncomfortable to stand and pose for the portraits.
