One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to follow up with clients as a maternity photographer. We can’t get enough of Sarah and Ryan’s tender romantic maternity shoot at Inniswoods Metropark in Dayton, Ohio.
Our team of photographers really is amazing. Not only do they take great pictures, but they also write blogs! When I asked Kera for a few words about her beautiful maternity session with Sara and Ryan, she sent me an entire blog post! Done! So enjoy this heartfelt, tender, love-filled maternity shoot.
“What amazes me so much about this shoot is how much Sara put into it. She researched looks, deliberated over locations, renovated her house. Ok, that might not have been just for the shoot but it didn’t hurt. I’m not saying you shouldn’t renovate your house just for an in-home photoshoot, but one or two rooms won’t hurt!
This shoot happened to fall on the first frost of the year in October. Sara powered through the apprehension of enduring the chill in a sundress and sandals. Rarely will the climate be comfortable for an entire shoot. Today was no exception, but Sara was able to push thoughts of the cold from her mind and take time to be photographed.
Ryan was a big help with our starting location, Inniswoods Metropark. Although Sara and I were hoping for a lake and a few canoes, we found ourselves pretty happy with the landscape, rod iron gates and sloping fields of glittering grass.
The flower crown Sara made for the shoot the day before. Which ended up working very well for the pictures.
Another thing I’m grateful for about their shoot is how Ryan and Sara were both into it and we worked together to make the images. We discussed ideas and when it came time to shoot they had fun with it.
After finishing up at Innes Woods Metropark, we moved to their house for a few more photos. Fortunately, the two finished rooms in their house were gorgeous. The nursery and master bedroom. Sara let me move furniture and furnishings around to get the most out of the light. They were both willing to try anything and really be in the moment. This tender and romantic maternity shoot produced some pictures they will treasure for a lifetime”
