What to wear to your maternity session - Fine Art Seattle Maternity Photographer

Styling a shoot is so important. I have to admit, what you wear to your session can make or break the images. I help you along the way with suggestions, and you don't have to break the bank unless you want to.

Sheena and I talked all along the way about what to wear to her maternity session at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. You want to choose clothing that photographs well. I love it when people send me photos or screenshots of ideas on what to wear to your maternity session. I have Pinterest boards and amazon links to steer you in the right direction. We want to work with nature to match it, not work against it. Choosing the right color is important. Patterns can be good -but only when used right. Bring more than one option if you want. Ideas of other things to bring- floppy hat, a cute flower that you love to hold on your bare belly. If you want bare belly shots think of a skirt with a bra-let to wear for that. Or bear it all in the forest!

This is a game changer for me. Motherhood blows my mind, and to be able to get creative and show how I feel about it is a gift.

I love this style for dresses here. This brand is spendy -but give an idea of what looks good out there in nature! And remember, you may already have something you want to wear and that’s ok!

HERE and HERE are links to a lovely dresses I found on Etsy.

Amazon has a few here are links below:

Simple yet pretty

Dramatic and lovely

Check this one out HERE

Here’s one from Nordstroms and they had more that were less painful on pocketbook.

Don’t forget you can return stuff that doesn’t work or that you use once!

Hope your day is great!

Mother Daughter Session, Mother's Day Lincoln Park West Seattle

It was really hard to choose the images for this post. I truly loved everything about this mother daughter family photo session at Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

Erin is a single mamma (Insert crowd cheering) She plays music and also founded Mode Music and Performing Arts Mode offers year round private and group music lessons to both kids and adults. So yeah, I love her. She works so hard a a single mom, I’m so glad she rewarded herself with this portrait session.

Right away it was obvious to me the special bond between this mother and daughter, and I set out to capture the love. And she told me to get weird! YAY! It did not hurt that their pooch Camille was also an amazing addition to this photo shoot.

I recommended they get their dresses from Joyfolie and to my delight they did! All of the planets aligned and Erin decided to make this a family tradition every year.

I already am looking forward to next year.
