Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Beautiful Black and White Maternity Photos

Photographer Sara Lucero had always wanted to do a shoot entirely in black and white, and fortunately expecting parents Martha and Justin loved the idea! The session took place in Apple Valley, California, hence the lovely desert backdrop. You can tell from these photos that this is a fun couple, and they definitely brought that personality into the session. If this glowing mom-to-be looks familiar to you, you might remember her lovely "Baby, It's Cold Outside" themed baby shower we featured earlier this year.
