Summer Maternity shoot floating
on the water's surface
Natural Beauty at Sunset in Port Huron, MI
Is ‘becoming a mother’ something you were born to do, or something you longed to do? It’s a natural, beautiful, inspiring process- creating an entire human with just your own body.
Claudia was completely embracing this moment in her life and was ready to celebrate it as the organic and ethereal process it is through a photo shoot!
While designing the shoot I wanted to work with nature and have it feel a bit fairy tale, a bit fashion, and a bit serene. Floating her on top of the water’s surface gave us that soft, maternal feeling. After that we embraced the raw aspect of pregnancy by showing off Claudia’s beautiful curves and enhancing her effortless beauty by stripping away all the unnecessary things and leaving her with just herself and that feeling of motherhood. This was also a graceful way to show off all of her artwork as well. Lastly we chased the sun as it set and celebrated soon to be baby Rory in a field of day lilies as the orange glow engulfed her.
A few weeks later 1 became 2 and Claudia was officially a mother to a newborn.
This experience was such an elegant way to end half this cycle... the end of pregnancyto enter into motherhood.
