Maternity Photography in the Hudson Valley, NY
I thought it pretty cool that these two recently asked me to photograph their 2022 wedding at the newly opened Hutton Brickyards in Kingston, NY. It was especially sweet when they enlisted me to do some maternity photography in the meantime.
Before agreeing, I did let them know that I had very little, if barely any, experience doing maternity photography. I have only photographed one maternity session, and it was about six years ago. And to be honest, I typically refer any maternity photography inquiries that come my way to others. I already do so many types of photography, I always hesitated to add yet another.
However, I looked at their maternity session as an opportunity to get to know these two better before their wedding. I also felt assured that since these two choose me as their wedding photographer, that they would ultimately like my approach to maternity photography too.
I also liked that dad was willing to be in the shoot too. I might have pushed him to be in the frame more than he preferred but these two were so natural together, I could not resist. It was obvious that these two have already been together for nine years. And well, I wanted to celebrate that too.
We choose a nature preserve in New Paltz, NY as the background for their maternity photography session. We simply went for a photo walk around the preserve stopping where there was lovely light. It was early spring and the Hudson Valley was still a brown but I love the way the warm setting sun warmed up the muted and craggy landscape.
These two are expecting their baby any day now. I am looking forward to getting the good news and photographing the three of them at their 2022 fall Hutton Brickyards’ wedding.
