Perth Maternity Photographer | Lesmurdie Falls I spent the most wonderful evening at Lesmurdie Falls with this gorgeous couple, with only a few weeks to go until bub arrives. The light was absolutely gorgeous which is why I always recommend golden hour for your maternity portraits. Rhiannon & Damien asked me to include his car in in the session s0 look out for that special image.
Why? Because The Golden Hour Equals Magical Light
My favourite lighting style for outdoor maternity portraits is back light. When the sun is low, warm and soft and it creates a magical haze around my subjects . It makes everything look soft and ethereal.
I usually schedule this type of shoot within an hour before sunset. The actual time depends on the time of year. Last night we finished up at 7:15pm but in winter we can start as early as 4:30pm so we don’t run out of light. I know, it can be a little inconvenient especially if you have a toddler who needs to be put to bed, but the result is a piece of your precious memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. Trust me in this; it is so worth it!
My maternity sessions are very relaxed, so you need not worry about feeling awkward. I will help you every step of the way including providing stunning gowns for you to use. Rhiannon had this to say about her session, ” Thank you so much for the photo shoot yesterday. I was a little nervous about the whole thing but you made it very easy and comfortable and you were fabulous with our not so obedient 5 year old. Can’t wait to see the photos and to do our newborn shoot!!!”
