The Maiden & the Sea Maternity Session

Photographer Ashley Bee titled this maternity session “The Maiden & the Sea”. She explained, “I always like to approach maternity sessions in very stylized ways by telling a story. A pregnant woman should feel absolutely stunning, her glow should be captured in a way that makes her feel grand about her changing body and her baby.” Together they went on a hunt to find an old, worn dinghy for their shoot on the stunning Laguna Beach coast. Once they found one, they had the perfect backdrop to tell their story. This is a wonderful way to approach maternity, and I love the enchanting, gorgeous photos that came out as a result! I cannot imagine mom Trisha did not feel perfectly beautiful and glowing after seeing these images.

    Yay! Thanks so much for featuring us today! Trisha is just stunning.

    And Sharon, you are right you don’t just find a dinghy on the beach, we happened to find it on Craigslist the day before though!
