I'll be honest here, I LOVE to photograph a beach maternity session!
The majority of my sessions are on the Northern Beaches (Manly, Curl Curl, Freshie, Mona Vale) but I travel all over Sydney. A beach maternity session is scheduled for about one hour before sunset so that we can take advantage of the wonderful golden hour soft light and with luck get a beautiful sunset. I never get tired of looking at the reflections in the water, the changing light and the cotton candy clouds in the sky.
This is Alex and Glen maternity shoot and it took place in Manly on Sydney's Northern Beaches. The weather was perfect, very warm with lots of clouds in the sky.
Alex was expecting her second child (a daughter) and has a gorgeous little boy called Lincoln who was great fun to photograph during the session. He was vey keen to explore the beach, search for sticks and chase the birds (what boy doesn't love that?). This family was very excited to meet their new baby and there was so much love and laughter during this session. Alex chose to wear her own clothes and show off her beautiful belly and very cool tattoo. Not all maternity clients want to have their bump on display, but Alex did and she totally rocked the look. It is so important to be comfortable and relaxed during a maternity session and stay true to your own style and personality as Alex did.
Please enjoy this glimpse of their beach maternity session.
