May 17, 2021

Are you looking to hire a Phoenix Maternity Photographer? It’s no coincidence that you have stumbled across my blog. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Voted Top Phoenix Maternity Photographer,  I am excited to share this sun-kissed Salt River maternity photography session. Coons Bluff is a gem right along the Salt River in the Tonto National Forest. It offers a variety of gorgeous backdrops for photographers and lots of opportunities for adventurors looking to spend the day outdoors. With just a little bit of luck, you will see wild horses roaming around.

A maternity session is a great opportunity to celebrate the anticipation of what’s to come. Marie and Julio are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their sweet baby boy this June. Searching for the perfect location, Marie fell in love with the idea of having her maternity portraits captured at sunset and adding maternity portraits in the water to her gallery.

Swimming happens to be one of the safest forms of excercise for expectant mommas. Being in the water helps ease pain, prevents overheating, and even relieves nausea. Additionally, it makes you feel lighter and carefree. It’s safe to say that including the Salt River in Marie’s maternity portraits was a real treat.

Maternity photos will strengthen the bond between you and your spouse. It’s the final chance to document how your dynamics are changing. While fathers don’t experience pregnancy the same way as mothers,  maternity photos can help them develop a strong emotional bond with their growing baby. This intimate moment is one of my personal favorites of their maternity session.
