A simple sunset maternity session that will be hard to forget #Maternity portraits#maternity#pregnancy April 19 2012 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride 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!

She's gorgeous in that dress too! 4 agree Reply That grin in the second photo=TOO MUCH SWEETNESS TO HANDLE! So awesome! 1 agrees Reply Gorgeous shots, gorgeous Mama! (Also yay for more moms of color on OBM!) 9 agree Reply This makes me wish I would have done a maternity session! Reply So beautiful!! Reply 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. 2 agree Reply 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 Reply 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! Reply 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. 1 agrees Reply 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!!
