Outdoor Maternity Photography in Miami

Outdoor maternity photography sessions are gorgeous at sunrise and at sunset. Is it just me, or are these just the most beautiful pregnancy photos you have seen?! It isn’t hard to create such gorgeous pictures when your subject is as gorgeous as this mom-to-be right here. What makes outdoor photography sessions so special is the glow these expecting moms get to show off in the excitement of waiting on the arrival of their little ones. How precious is it to be able to witness and document the love you can feel in these photos between these moms and their babies? There is nothing quite like the feeling knowing you will be meeting your whole world in a short matter of time- and that’s what makes these photos so sweet. To add to the beauty of maternity shoots, I utilize the beautiful South Florida sunshine we get here year-round, and it emphasizes mama’s glow so much more. So don’t be afraid to take your maternity pictures in Miami outside. “Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.” ~ Harriette Hartigan Outdoor Maternity Photography Miami […]
