For each Maternity Beach Photo Session I like to shoot at a different beach. For this session I chose Balmoral Beach in Sydney's North Shore. It has great access and parking, which is perfect when I have a lot to carry. More importantly, I love the fact that there are two beaches, a pavilion and a jetty. Plus the rocks have beautiful warm colours and there are trees and a small park. Lots and lots of variety.
On the day of our shoot, the weather was not looking good and we came close to cancelling the session. But thankfully the rain stopped and we had some sunshine and perfect skies for the shoot.
At 34 weeks pregnant and due with her second child, Irene wanted to combine her maternity shoot with some family photos too. She choose to wear two outfits for her shoot, her own blue dress and my pink chiffon maternity dress (pictured below). She also brought along her wedding parasol which I think was a perfect prop in her photos. I always encourage my clients to bring along any items that they think might look great in their photo or that has sentimental value.
The session was a mix of individual photos of Irene and also some with her husband and daughter. A family and maternity combined session is a great way to have all the family involved in the pregnancy and the photos will be ones that they will always treasure.
