Are you a soon-to-be mom who just isn’t sure where to take her maternity photos?  Santa Barbara has so many great photography options! You could go to a park or have the mountains as your backdrop, and those would both be fine.  But if it were me, I’d pick the beach.  The beach creates a gorgeous setting of sun, sand, and splendid light to capture even more of the glow you currently have!  I put together my three top reasons why your maternity session should be at the beach.  Check them out!

What to Wear

If you choose to have your maternity session on the beach, you have access to my client closet.  This closet is full of beautiful pieces, perfect for a beach session.  While I do have several dresses for you to pick from, I do suggest using one of my stylish robes for this session.  These robes are a perfect way to catch that golden light that we all love and show off you and your bump in all the right ways.

Come on in; the water’s fine

Before you grab your swim cap and goggles, we won’t be going under!  I have so many reasons why I love maternity beach sessions, but the water is probably my favorite. Walking along the shoreline, the rocks create an added texture to your photos, and, of course, the sand between your toes are just a few reasons why water is the best. I won’t send you snorkeling, but let’s get our feet wet!

Waves, on waves, on waves

Speaking of water, how can we forget the waves?! My goodness, I love a soon-to-be mom embracing her glow with the waves crashing into the rocks behind her.  It is just stunning!  Still need convincing?  Take a look at some images from previous sessions.  Breathtaking, right?!

I’m happy to take your maternity photos anywhere. Santa Barbara has a variety of backdrops that are sure to make your images beautiful.  However, if it were me, I would hands down pick the beach for my maternity session.  The light, the added elements, and a radiant you create the perfect scenario!  Ready to walk along the beach and show off your bump?  Click the button below, and let’s get your maternity session on the books!
