Top 3 locations for Maternity Photography

Choosing a location for your maternity photography session can feel incredibly overwhelming, you want the photos to be perfect, and the possibilities seem endless. I always advise my clients to think about the feel they envision for their images, beach, forest, mountain etc. and also where they plan to display there images. This last one is important as you want the colors of your images to coordinate with your decor so this can influence the location and your outfit choice.

 To give you some ideas, I have put together my top 3 locations in the Seattle area.

1.   Washington Arboreutm At this time of year,  this is one of my all time favorite locations. The colors are incredible and the variety of backdrops at the one location are endless. My favorite time of day to shoot is late afternoon/sunset and the light here is to die for. Its also great for a Sunday afternoon stroll!

2.   Evans Creek Preserve . This is a wonderful spring and summer location. With beautiful grassy areas and mossy forest, it provides a real PNW feel. There is a gorgeous little bridge as you arrive and sunset provides the most amazing warm landscape

3.   North Creek Park I was introduced to this one by a client and I instantly fell in love. The long grass of the wetlands and the meandering boardwalks provide such a simple and stunning backdrop. There are so many quiet areas, its great for providing a private little hideaway.
