Northwest Ohio Maternity Photographer {K’s adorable baby belly!}

At the end of your third trimester of pregnancy, you don’t have a lot of time to reschedule if the weather happens to ruin your maternity portrait session.  Luckily, Northwest Ohio was nice to us, as this momma wanted outdoor portraits as well as fine art nude images, in the studio…. and she was around 36 weeks pregnant!   The skies were so blue and it really helped create some colorful images.  I admit, I usually lean more toward a good black and white photograph, but these colors were really dramatic, and I like it.

We were so lucky to have beautiful weather in Archbold the day of this maternity photo session.

This maternity dress was the mom and dad’s pick, and it worked beautifully with the colors of our NW Ohio location. The bracelet was a pregnancy gift, and it says “Love you already.” How cute is that?!

“Jack and Jill went up the hill” baby belly photo! Thank you, Archbold, for having at least one hill!

 

Before every portrait session, we do a pre-design consultation.  (If you’re not local to NW Ohio, it’s not a big deal, because we can do this over the phone.)  Anyway, for this momma, we discussed creating an image that she could hang in the nursery, which is themed with “Nursery Rhymes.”  Since they didn’t know if the baby was a baby boy, or a little girl, she wanted to stay away from too much blue or pink, but we did work with her favorite color- purple!   In the end, everything was tied together when we created these “Jack and Jill climbed up a hill” portraits, which they decided was perfect for their baby’s nursery.  I was happy too, because I’ve been eager to photograph someone on that hill for a long time.  Let me tell you, we don’t have a lot of hills around NW Ohio, so they really catch my attention!

I have been envisioning this maternity skirt, on this NWO hill, for over a year. I’m so glad momma was up for the mini-hike. Good pre-natal exercise, right? 😉

 

Maternity sessions with Ashley Short Photography almost always include the dad-to-be, and this one was no exception.   This couple was so connected, that the more I worked with them, the more I knew that I was going to have an amazing time being their birth photographer.  (And they’re going to make great parents, by the way.)  Their love is so evident, and abundant.   I did have a great time photographing the birth of their baby, and I can’t wait to share those photographs with you.   In the mean time, enjoy a few more of their baby belly photos!

If a new mother’s favorite color is purple, then we find a way to make sure her baby belly photos have purple!

My favorite type of maternity portrait is the “Fine Art Nude.” While this image classifies more as “Implied nude”, I love it and the warmth it conveys.

I love momma’s beautiful baby belly, and the marks that show how mother and baby have grown together.
