A simple sunset maternity session that will be hard to forget

All photos by Gregarious Peach.

For all of the amazing things people have thought to do for their maternity photos (and trust me — we've seen some of the best around!) every so often it's nice to keep it simple. These shots from Gregarious Peach are a great example of what I mean: just a woman, her pregnancy, and the world around her.

I am a BIG TIME fan of this dress!
BUMP!
Parking garages = an oft-overlooked photo session location. Just saying: they're awesome.
There's so much peace in this that it spills over. I loooooove.
So smiley, so happy. So perfect!

  1. I love that these are beautiful photos that aren't over-styled. I feel like most of the shoots I see appear over-planned/-styled (for my taste), which creates neat looking photos. If I were pregnant, though, I would want the shoot to be about capturing reality, and this looks well done.

    Also: yay for urban setting! I love a city scene. Babies CAN be around cities! Not just prairie fields and flower gardens.

    • My maternity photos were "urban" too – and I love them! The only change we had to make was to photoshop out a graffiti penis in one shot. LOL

  2. You have all of these shapes and they're all WONDERFUL. Seriously, I am in awe of your beauty. I love your bold-ass dress. Gorg. Gorg gorg gorg!

  3. I am the mama in these shots and how I love them.
    My favourite part of the shoot was the lack of styling. Thank you all for the kind and wonderful comments.
    P.S. The dress was a 10 dollar cheapies from SES.

  4. This whole session is extremely inspirational for me. Such beautiful setting choices and I'm all about the lighting. My *favorite* picture, though, is the one that's simply of the mama's bust, belly and the top of her leg. It's just everything I think maternity shoots should be about. Gorgeous!!
