Earlier this February, I had such a wonderful time taking some lovely maternity shots with Mom-To-Be, Jessica, at the Hartwood Acres Mansion in Pittsburgh, PA.
First off, let me start by saying that Jessica was absolutely glowing the entire maternity mini session! She was giving off pure goddess vibes in her floral print dress and golden sandals. We were taking the photos as both a personal keepsake for her and also for use at her baby shower.
The Hartwood Acres Mansion is an absolutely stunning tuder-style mansion residing in the 629-acre Allergheny County Park in Pennsylvania. It’s construction began in 1927 and ended in 1929. The result was one of the most breathtaking and spectacular county estates in the region. Boasting a total of 31 rooms situated around a beautiful great hall, this slate-roofed stone mansion serves as such a perfect backdrop for literally any elegant photoshoot you could imagine. If you’re a photographer in the area, I highly suggest checking this spot out for your next photo shoot if you haven’t already.
I just loved the photos we got right as the golden hour was at its peak! The sun hung in the air and made Jessica look even more majestic than she already was. It was a true joy being able to photograph Jessica for this maternity shoot. We had such a fantastic time taking the photos and I just know that Jessica is going to be an amazing mother to this new little love. Congrats again, Jessica!
I always have such an amazing time with maternity shoots. I know pregnancy can be trying at times. 9 months can seem like forever when waiting for these precious little lights to come into the world. So, it’s important to me when doing a maternity session that the mama feels as comfortable and as beautiful as possible.
I strive to make your photo session day as painless as it can be, especially in the later months, so that you can focus on feeling and looking your absolute best! If you’ve been wanting to do a maternity photoshoot, but you’re nervous or you feel like you just don’t have the time, let’s talk about it! I would love to hear from you to. Let’s make the day of your maternity photo session a day to remember!
