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.

The Maiden & the Sea Maternity Session

Photographer Ashley Bee titled this maternity session "The Maiden & the Sea". She explained, "I always like to approach maternity sessions in very stylized ways by telling a story. A pregnant woman should feel absolutely stunning, her glow should be captured in a way that makes her feel grand about her changing body and her baby." Together they went on a hunt to find an old, worn dinghy for their shoot on the stunning Laguna Beach coast. Once they found one, they had the perfect backdrop to tell their story. This is a wonderful way to approach maternity, and I love the enchanting, gorgeous photos that came out as a result! I cannot imagine mom Trisha did not feel perfectly beautiful and glowing after seeing these images.
