Vanessa’s Maternity Portraits | Sacramento Maternity Photographer | Folsom, Ca
I had a wonderful time capturing maternity portraits of this gorgeous mama on a lovely June afternoon At Folsom Lake.
As a Sacramento area maternity photographer, I am continually on the look for scenery that would make a nice backdrop for portraits, and I have been so happy with how beautiful Sacramento and all of the surrounding areas have been this spring and now as we head into the summer months the scenery has dried out a bit but it’s still very green and beautiful out there. Over the last couple of years when we were dealing with the effects of the drought in California, Sacramento was very dry and not nearly as picturesque as it is now. Thanks to all of the rainy months we have had this winter, Folsom lake full of water, and it makes me very happy as a photographer to be able to photograph my clients in front of such beautiful scenery once again.
For this lovely summer maternity session I met Vanessa and Julio who are expecting their first baby, on a picturesque sunny afternoon in Folsom. These two were absolutely delightful to photograph and they are very excited for their baby girl to arrive and to come see me again for newborn portraits.
We took a stroll around the trails leading to the lake and found plenty of gorgeous spots to pose for pictures. I love posing expecting mamas along the beach here and I love to tuck my subjects into a spot where I can shoot through the leaves and create an interesting frame, and this spot in Folsom is great for that! Not only did we encounter pretty surroundings, in addition the afternoon sunlight was golden and beautiful and it made my photographer’s heart very happy.
Vanessa was interested in taking me up on my offer to provide her wardrobe for her. She chose to wear a bright blue colored strapless knit floor length gown made by Sew Trendy Accessories. She also brought a light colored maxi dress with her from home, and I just love the way that champagne color compliments Vanessa’s complexion. I am so pleased with how gorgeous these maternity portraits turned out.
Wishing a huge congratulations to Vanessa and Julio as they anticipate the arrival of their sweet baby. Thanks for the fun time!
