Bumps and Bubbles | Underwater Maternity Photos

It has been awhile since I’ve spotlighted some gorgeous underwater maternity photos!  With (hopefully) beautiful weather here and Spring Break starting pretty much NOW, I figured this was the perfect time to break out some incredible images from an awesome session.  In most of my posts, I use a collage to display session photos, but these are so unique that I want to showcase them individually.  You won’t find many photographers in our area doing underwater maternity photos, but I absolutely LOVE them!  There are just so many interesting angles and ways of capturing light, colors and the maternal form underwater!  See for yourself!

Moments | Family Photographs Houston

Here lately it seems I’ve been getting so many awesome clients who want to do family maternity sessions…and I love it so much!  Capturing special moments in these growing families is just THE BEST!  There’s something so wonderful about celebrating the life a family currently enjoys while also anticipating the arrival of their newest addition.  Although it may seem like it, photographs don’t just capture what is happening in that particular moment; they represent everything that was happening during that period in your and your family’s life.  It’s always neat to look back at certain photos and think about the events that took place around that time or to realize, “Wow…those are the last family pictures of you as an only child!” or whatever the situation may be.  Every picture has a story behind it and surrounding it that only those in it (and sometimes the photographer) are aware of.

This gorgeous family’s story photographs so beautifully:  two loving parents, an adorable little boy and a new baby on the way!  There’s a lot more going on behind the scenes, though, that only they can know.  When they look at these photos, I hope they have lovely memories of not only this day, but many special moments that surrounded it.Family Photographs HoustonFamily Photographs HoustonFamily Photographs HoustonFamily Photographs Houston

Family Maternity | Family Photos Houston Area

Although I love all maternity sessions (celebrating the miracle of a new life is always awesome!), I especially love maternity sessions that include siblings and other family members!  A mom with her baby belly is absolutely gorgeous and I definitely want to get those shots, but including other family members in the session shows just how much love is surrounding this new baby.  Having the support of your spouse and your baby’s sibling(s) is so very crucial for creating the most joyful, peaceful and comfortable environment when you bring your newborn home.  There is nothing better than knowing that all those around you are giving you all the love and assistance that you and your tiny baby need.

I absolutely love these photos of this sweet family who will be welcoming their newest addition very soon.  You can just see all the love that will greet this precious child!  Lovely big sister is excited for sure!  Even the dog looks happy about welcoming the new baby!  (Maybe it’s just a naturally smiley face, but he does look super happy…I love it!)

Basking | Maternity Photographs Houston Texas

BASK: 1. lie exposed to warmth and light, typically from the sun, for relaxation and pleasure.
2. revel in and make the most of (something pleasing).

When I look at these pictures, the first word that comes to mind is “basking”.  I love to see women just glowing and reveling in their pregnancy!  This beautiful mamma is absolutely basking in the glow of the sunshine as well as her lovely maternity.  Just like in the second definition, she’s truly making the most of this glorious time in her life.

She’s not the only one basking in the sunshine, however.  Check out this family’s adorable dogs soaking it up and absolutely loving it!  I love the way that dogs find the sunny spot and get that squinty-eyed smiley expression that looks like they’re just in heaven.

This whole family is just awesome!  I can’t wait to capture their new arrival!  I’m sure that they will all be basking in the joy of their sweet newborn soon!

Immersed | Woodlands Underwater Photographer

Although it is officially fall now (though you wouldn’t know it by the temperatures that still get into the 90s some days!), I just had to share some of these amazing underwater maternity shots!  If you know much (or even a little) about me, you’re probably aware that I adore maternity photos as well as underwater photography.  The combination of the two is just perfection!  There aren’t sufficient words for me to describe how beautiful I think an expectant mamma looks being photographed underwater.  There’s something about one who is giving life being surrounded by life-giving water…it’s like poetic photography.  To think of her child inside her being completely surrounded and sustained by her body’s water while she is immersed in water as well…it’s just so gorgeous and symbolic!

This lovely mamma was the perfect model for underwater maternity photography!  She looks so effortless, weightless and graceful in all of her shots…a feat not so easily accomplished when so very pregnant (or even when not pregnant for many!).  I loved this photo shoot and the resulting pictures so much!
