Santa Rosa Maternity Photographer | Mustard Field

Hi there, I’m Lindsey, a Santa Rosa Maternity Photographer : )

If you know me, you know I love all things that have to do with wildflowers.  Some might say I’m slightly obsessed.  Needless to say, I’ve been wanting to go out and shoot a maternity session in the mustard field.  The weather seems to be a bit hit or miss lately… sometimes sun, sometimes fog and clouds.  I was really hoping for sun tonight and lets just say mother nature did not disappoint!  I feel like I’m always talking about weather but I guess for me the weather does play a big role in how the session will turn out.  A sunny backlit photo does have a different feel to it than one with an overcast sky.  For me the mustards and the sunshine go hand in hand, must be all that yellow.

This was my first time meeting this mama to be and she was just as sweet as ever.  As we discussed beforehand, she brought a few outfits and was even brave enough to change behind a bush- lol.  We started with a beautiful cream lacy dress.  I loved the soft cream color with the pops of color from the grass, mustard flowers and the huge acacia tree that happened to be in full bloom (good thing I took my allergy medicine that morning!).  Her next outfit was one that showed off her beautiful baby bump!

I do recommend bringing a few outfits to a session, it adds a nice variety to your gallery of photos and in regards to a maternity session, it is nice to bring along an outfit that will let you show off that bare bump!  (and if you’re concerned about a few stretch marks, don’t worry, those are easy to lighten/remove in Photoshop).

Halfway thru the session we changed locations.  A few days prior I happened to be driving by an orchard that was full of blooming mustard and bare apple trees.  It looked so gorgeous I knew I had to shoot there.  I had a wonderful time with this stunning mama and I can’t wait to meet her baby boy!

And my personal favorite of the evening, actually this image is probably in my top 10 of all time… Aly truly made my vision come alive with this shot.

Santa Rosa Maternity Photographer | Rainy Day

Hi I’m Lindsey a Santa Rosa Maternity Photographer!

Normally I like to shoot in the sun, I love that golden glowing backlighting, that magical hour before the sun goes down.

BUT… that doesn’t always happen, we are preparing for a very wet winter here in California and you know what, I’m going to embrace that rain!

The slight drizzle, the use of a cute umbrella for a prop, the red dress, the grey sky… it was all perfect.

We started out drinking a little hot chocolate… who doesn’t love hot chocolate with little marshmallows?!

While we were waiting for mama to change her outfit, I snapped a few of these two.  As you can tell, she has her daddy wrapped around her little finger

I can not get enough of Layla and this little umbrella.  I have a feeling she is going to be a great big sister!

I just love Ashlee’s style!  When we talked about how to style her session, she said she wanted a cozy wintery feel and I think we did just about perfect on accomplishing that!
