With the recent snow fall, I had the opportunity to take maternity photos.

I don’t have much experience taking maternity photos, and I wanted these to be magical- so I found a small tree farm in Idaho Falls and took some beautiful winter photos.

Snowflakes just started to fall as we trudged through the snow to find a neatly organized row of pine trees. This was the perfect location for a quick and cold photoshoot. I know my models fairly well, but I still needed to communicate. I explained to my models how I wanted them to look and even showed examples of photos so they could see some poses themselves. I tried to angle my subjects differently so that they could stand out among the beautiful background.

I edited all of my photos in color and black and white so that my client could choose between the two. I enjoyed taking these group photos because it was something that I haven’t done much in my career. These winter maternity photos are now some of my favorite.
