I’m excited to show you this beach maternity session . Kelli was so excited about her maternity session and expressed to me how important it was to document this special time for them. I couldn’t agree with her more. Being pregnant and growing a baby in your belly is something many women dream of, wonder about, and hope for many years before it happens. It is such an incredible experience and is very short lived. I ALWAYS recommend my clients do a maternity session because it is something I really regret not doing.
Kelli got the full KWP experience with makeup and wardrobe styling. She came to the studio in advance of her session for a styling appoinment. I love styling appointments because it takes away all the stress on the day of the session. It allows us to get acquainted with each other and helps clients feel so much more comfortable at their session. It also gives us time to plan out exactly what you want for your session!
Kelli tried on a bunch of different dresses and ended up choosing 3 for her session! During the styling appointment, we discussed the look she wanted for her session and what location would be best. Because it is January, she opted to do half her session in studio and half at the beach (so we didn’t freeze to death). Since my studio is only 5 minutes from the beach, this worked out perfectly!
On the day of her session, my makeup artist, Angelina with Beautymarked Studio, went to her home to get her photo ready. Then Kelli and her husband came to the studio to get dressed and head to the beach! We got a beautiful sunny evening (albeit a little cold) on the beach. The best thing about winter at the beach is there are no crowds! Ha! The winter light is quite different than summer light, but still very beautiful.
After we finished the beach session, we headed back to the studio for a few more portraits. I love this snug-fitting gray dress on her. She is such a stunning woman and that dress was perfect on her!
I can’t wait to meet her baby in just a couple of months!
