Hillsborough River State Park Maternity Session
If you are looking for a woodsy location in Tampa, Florida, Hillsborough River State Park is one of the best. Its palmettos give the most quintessential Florida woods vibe and the greens there are to die for! The suspension bridge is probably the most well known photo spot, but there are SO MANY hidden gems in this park. I love how the trees framed Angel at her maternity session and the evening light in the woods is always so soft and pretty.
Angel styled her family in a casual look that I loved for the first part of her session. Take notes for your family because she checked all the boxes - coordinating not matching, varying textures, subtle prints, attention to detail right down to the shoes. Check, check, check!
After we had plenty of photos with her family, Angel changed into a Client Closet dress for a more dramatic look with her individual maternity portraits. I love this dress for pregnancy pictures because its vintage lace gives such a beautiful texture to those close up details. It has a drawstring waist that makes it beautiful for women of all shapes and can definitely be worn on not pregnant mamas, too.
Clients can always borrow from my growing Client Closet. Just one less thing to do when preparing for your photo session! I have a gallery of the dresses in use so you can choose 2-3 for me to bring along to your session to try out. They are mostly neutral or earthy tones so easy to coordinate with for the rest of the fam.
