Maternity Photography – Capturing moments

Maternity Photography – Capturing moments – Alena Photography Charleston SC

My goal as a maternity photographer is to create images to display on the walls of your home. Elegant, classic and timeless images every mother and family wants to pass down to the next generations.

When Shannon first contacted me inquiring about a photo session she new stunning downtown Charleston SC will a perfect backdrop for the session.

We began with picking the right dress for the photoshoot. Shannon picked beautiful soft pink gown from . Soft flowy chiffon and stretchy top perfectly accentuated her baby bump. Classic gown with modern twist went well with charming downtown streets.

The connection with motherhood we were able to create and capture is just powerful. This portraits tell a story and will shape future of the sweet baby girl awaiting to be born. Shannon is an elephant fan and has a beautiful tattoo on her shoulder. Baby’s nursery is also an elephant theme.

Capturing moments between future parents is one of the most rewarding things. Maternity photography is not only about future mothers. Fathers deserve some renegotiation as well. Just look how radiant and glowing Shannon looks next to her husband. The connection and love is undeniable.

All the feels

Motherhood reveals itself in it’s finest during pregnancy. Those 9 months will soon become fleeting fleeting moments. Connections will grow stronger.This images will be a beautiful reminder of the special bond between future parents long after baby is born.

“Connection is why we are here. We are hardwired to connect with others. it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. Without it there is suffering” Brene Brown

Charleston Maternity Shoot – Alena Photography

Maternity Shoot – Alena Photography Charleston

There are many beautiful locations in Charleston area for maternity shoot. Jennifer and Eric picked Shem Creek park in Mt. Pleasant as it had the most meaning to them.

Check more info about this park here

This was my first time working at that location and I am in love. You can’t beat the sunset by the water! Depending on the weather, you get a light breeze and beautiful haze. Working outside definitely keeps me on my toes.

Knowing that my clients had their wedding pictures taken at the same place made me think creatively. Incorporating sun for some silhouette images and direct light for different style made this maternity shoot fun. Just look at this sunset?! Isn’t it amazing?!

Choosing my favorite photos for the gallery was hard. I am happy Jennifer had a trust in me to capture this special time. Pregnancy brings new meaning to life and shows how amazing woman’s body is.

I love this quote about motherhood and pregnancy:

 “Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”

– Jodi Picoult
