We had the pleasure of capturing this beautiful mama-to-be in our Midtown Manhattan NYC studio. Based on our pre-session consultation, we decided to focus on the timeless beauty of implied nudes with tasteful hand placement. Comfort is of the essence for this exquisite style of portraiture, and we always strive to create a relaxed and cozy environment for our clients. Per mama’s request, we also captured some more conservative portraits with the dress she’d worn for her baby shower. Such an honor to capture these precious memories as beautiful works of art to be treasured for years to come.
We captured so many gorgeous concepts during our time together for this maternity photography workshop, and couldn’t resist sharing just a few of our favorites…

A great maternity photography session will not only produce stunning portraits, but also make you feel beautiful and confident. Pregnancy is one of the most special times in your life. Your skin is glowing, your hair is voluminous, and your body is curvaceous. A professional studio maternity photo shoot is the perfect way to capture your journey into motherhood.
At glow portraits®, we have the skills and expertise in maternity and newborn photography. We know how to apply lighting, posing, and artistic cropping to make you look and feel your best. Rest assured that we will customize posing and lighting for the most flattering angles, and our post-processing includes tasteful smoothing of skin and body contours to make sure you look your best. We have years of experience specializing in maternity photography and newborn portraits. You can trust us to direct you in posing that is customized to your body type. We capture a blend of camera aware poses and intimate poses cradling the belly, while other maternity poses emphasize the beautiful curves of pregnancy.
The best time to capture your maternity photos is 32 – 36 weeks into your pregnancy. Your belly is beautifully round, but you are still feeling comfortable to kneel and lay down for a variety of fabulous poses. For expecting mothers of twins, we recommend 26 to 30 weeks since twins tend to arrive earlier. We recommend professional make-up and hair styling to ensure a timeless look for your portraits. Natural make-up, fake lashes, and soft curls are generally preferred among our clients. We offer a wardrobe of fitted maternity gowns, silk fabrics, lace robes, and crop tops for a variety of beautiful concepts. Clients are also welcome to bring their own lingerie and styles if they have a particular concept in mind. As you’ll see in our portfolio, we love to get creative!
With a combination of both natural light and studio lighting, we strike an elegant balance that accents your beautiful bump. We pay special attention to posing and all the small details to ensure your maternity portraits are flawless. The Midtown Manhattan studio is warm and welcoming for expecting parents. As NYC’s premiere portrait photographer, we specialize in capturing the beauty of your pregnancy as exquisite works of art.
