As a wedding and couples photographer based in Southern California, I am constantly in awe of the love stories that unfold before my lens. However, every now and then, I have the privilege of capturing a different kind of love story - the journey of motherhood. Bekah Martinez’s studio maternity photoshoot at a beautiful studio in Long Beach was one to remember!
From the moment Bekah stepped into the studio, her radiant glow was impossible to ignore. As a soon-to-be momma, she exuded an aura of serenity and joy that was truly captivating. It was evident that this session held a special place in her heart, and I felt incredibly honored to be a part of this significant moment in her life!
While maternity shoots are not something I do frequently, they hold a unique place in my heart. The opportunity to document the beauty and strength of a woman during pregnancy is a privilege that I cherish deeply. It is a time when a woman's body is creating life, and capturing this transformative experience through photography is a celebration of the incredible journey of motherhood.
Maternity shoots hold a unique importance, as they document a once-in-a-lifetime experience that deserves to be cherished and remembered. It is a celebration of the miracle of life and the incredible strength and love that mothers possess!
To enhance the vibrancy of the session, we incorporated daisies into the shoot. These delicate flowers added a touch of personality and character, perfectly complementing Bekah's natural beauty. Each photograph became a testament to the uniqueness of this moment, reflecting the joy and anticipation that filled the air.
Film Maternity Portraits
Throughout Bekah Martinez’s studio maternity photoshoot, I captured timeless moments on both digital and film cameras. While digital photography offers versatility and instant gratification, film photography holds a special place in my heart. The soft, dreamy quality of film photos adds a touch of nostalgia and elegance, creating a truly enchanting visual experience. The film photos I took of Bekah during her maternity session are among my favorites, as they beautifully captured her essence and the ethereal nature of the moment. I can’t wait to take them of her and her family one day!
Whether you're a soon-to-be mother or a couple looking to document this extraordinary chapter in your lives, I’d love to capture the magic and create timeless memories. Take a look at my pricing and packages and contact me through my website to get started!
