Sunset Maternity Pictures

Lately I have been shooting a lot of maternity pictures and they have truly become one of my favorite portrait genres! I have worked with some amazing and beautiful expecting mamas. They are an inspiration to me; although I have yet to start a family, I know that someday my husband and I will have a house full of little pattering feet and giggles.

This past week I had a maternity shoot at Morro Bay on the beach at sunset with Bailey and her husband, Taylor. She is a barrel racer and they own a handful of horses. I decided to play around with silhouettes to draw the attention to her beautiful belly. I quite liked the result!!! Oh...and they brought one of their horses, which made me so excited. The evening was near freezing, but we all had a blast despite the wind chill. The sunset was amazing that night; I love little gifts like that. Here's a little preview of our evening on the beach!
