This was a gorgeous maternity session done at Tift Nature Preserve in Buffalo, NY. Jenna and Artie scream magazine and glam style photos! We did their engagement photos and wedding photos. They had their wedding at Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawanna, NY. Then the reception was a the Statler in downtown Buffalo. Some really red carpet style things going on!
Once we heard they were expecting, our minds started going for maternity photo ideas. We needed to incorporate somewhat the same style as their wedding. We knew Jenna would have a super dressy outfit. As you can see in this image, she had a beautiful fitted dress with a long train. She needed something super fitted because she had the tiniest belly. We needed to see that belly for photos! Artie looked amazing in his dress pants and shirt to compliment the mommy to be Jenna!
She wanted a super airy style maternity session. We gave her Tift to research for the location. It was perfect! We started off the session here in one outfit. Very neutral and airy. Nothing too bold. We worked with nature and and the rolling hills. Then we moved across the street to the outer harbor piers for more dramatic photos along the water.
For this image, we wanted a casual action shot with mommy and daddy to be, just walking hand in hand. The only tip we gave them, was to not look at the camera. We wanted them to look at each other.They nailed it! The tall grass was blowing in the wind to create movement in the image. Artie and Jenna are both glowing with happiness. They were so excited to meet their baby boy!
