A spring-themed maternity photo session in a greenhouse

Nicole and George were ready to shoot their maternity photos to celebrate the impending arrival of their first child, but were stuck: they live in Massachusetts, and at the time of the session it was still cold outside. Luckily their photographer Amie Fedora Photography knew of a warm spot: the greenhouses at Wellesley College. The photos are a sweet capture of the excitement of new life — complete with flowers to boot!

Two mamas, a baby on the way, and abundant sunshine

Y'all, I am swooning over Jill and Erica's maternity session by Amy Ann Photography! The session took place in Columbus, Ohio, and the group visited the wonderful So-Hud tree mural, the Buggy Works complex in the Arena District, North Bank Park, and ended the photos at the Book Loft in the German Village (locals shout out!).

An intimate representation of a celebration of life: my husband took my maternity photos and I love them

Ever since I was a teenager I always wanted to get professional shots when I was heavily pregnant, because I've always found the pregnant form to be absolutely exquisite. However, I was swamped under work for the last several weeks of my pregnancy which meant that I ran out of time and was unable to get a professional shoot. Being the determined (stubborn) person that I am, I still really wanted to get some photos, because I didn't think I'd ever feel so confident in myself again.
