Golden Hour Maternity Pictures
Aimee and Chase are the cutest parents to be, and I was so lucky to capture their maternity pictures in one of my favorite spots in Las Vegas. I met Aimee through facebook when I was advertising my valentine's day mini sessions last year, and since she works with my sister, she saw my post and booked one of my time slots. I love maternity sessions, so I was so excited to have one of the mini sessions be a little maternity session! The other crazy part is that I went to high school with Chase's brother Chance, and also shot Chance and Skylar's #maternity session!
For my mini sessions, I wanted to have some kind of prop, so I made a little bouquet that my clients could use in some of the pictures, and I loved how this turned out! This spot is right outside of Las Vegas, and perfect for #engagement pictures as well as beautiful boho maternity portraits, and it just lights up around sunset. This is definitely my favorite time to shoot photos in this spot. Golden hour is just that, GOLDEN, everything in the desert turns gold and it's just like the desert is bathed in sunlight, it is so beautiful. Sometimes you can get a wild sunset at this spot too, which looks wild with all the Joshua Tree's around. I like to call this spot my little Joshua Tree National Park, but it's only 20 minutes from my house instead of 4 hours!
We had a lot of fun out in the desert this evening, and even though it was a little chilly, the photos made it look like a beautiful and warm in the #desert on this winter evening. Being a wedding photographer in Las Vegas means that we get to capture some of the most amazing weddings and elopements, but I still think that some of my favorite shoots ever are maternity pictures. It has to do with this beautiful moment before your entire world changes, and it's like this beautiful moment for the future parents to soak in their time together and their love. Also, the female body is something that I am always in awe over, how it grows and entire human from one cell, and it stretches and bounces back afterwards, and a baby bump is just such a beautiful thing, that I LOVE getting to photograph them. So without further ado, Aimee and Chase's maternity valentines day mini session!
