Maternity Photos ... an Ode to Mamas

In honor of Mother's Day I wanted to post a maternity session that I did for one of my dear friends Lauren. Fast forward 4 months after these pictures were taken and I had the honor of photographing her son Clive's birth (and absolutely can't believe he will be one in June). When it comes to maternity photos I love keeping them simple, journalistic, and true. I wholeheartedly believe less is always more. I want moms to be who they are.

I love photographing moms in their favorite settings … places that make them feel comfortable, confident, and at ease. For Lauren, home is definitely where her heart is.

 Being able to see the women I photograph grow into authentic, strong, and inspiring moms is incredibly rewarding.

So, to all of the moms I have photographed, will photograph, and hope to photograph you are loved, appreciated, and true blessings to the lives you impact daily. 
Happy Mother's Day from Coeur de La Photography.
