Beach Maternity Photos | Meriden, CT

Maternity photography is truly an art that celebrates the upcoming special arrival of a new life to a family, while also focusing on the amazing power that a Mother carries creating that life. So when I’m planning a maternity photoshoot with my clients, I really want them to be themselves, feel how amazing they are, and decide on where they want to have their photos taken. I tend to take more photos in the studio, but love going on location with clients as well to capture their connections outside. This Mom really really wanted to go to the beach. She hasn’t been to Hammonassett State Park in a long time, so that’s where we went for her beach maternity photos. And she wasn’t alone, this beautiful family of 5 (soon to be 6), was with her to get some family photos together as well. What an adorable group! With their different ages, it was unique to focus on their relationship together as a family, as husband and wife, as siblings, and brothers. We explored Meigs Point as the sun was getting lower in the sky which created some gorgeous open shade to photograph in. I wish I lived closer to be able to photograph here more often! From there, we walked over to the beach so the kids could take of their shoes and run in the sand. What photoshoot wouldn’t be complete without photos of Mom and her beautiful turquoise skirt and belly standing on the jetty with the sun setting behind her? We had such a gorgeous gallery of photos and I love how they turned out in an heirloom album they’ll be able to enjoy forever. Book with us in your 2nd trimester so we can plan for not only maternity photos but newborn photos as well!
