Maternity session at White Sands for Rubi

Updated: Feb 18, 2022

The majestic scenery at White Sands National Park brought in over 780,000 visitors in 2021 which is no wonder that so many mama's reach out to me for their maternity photos there. Rubi is one gorgeous mama who was from Albuquerque who contacted me as asked me if I was available for maternity photos.

Rubi looked at my collection of over 140 maternity gowns and really adored this beige tulle couture robe. She liked the color and the design and she looked fabulous in it.

It was a beautiful day with no wind which was perfect for this particular gown. Since it's sheer I advised Rubi to wear nude color undergarments to help blend in with the gown.

It was important for Rubi to have photos with her husband as well which I explained that all of my maternity packages include photos of her, her hubby and her other children. It also includes the dress rentals as well. I have several different poses I love to include dad in so it gives you more options to choose from.

One of my favorite shots to do for anyone that comes down to White Sands is to get a beautiful scenic shot of the mountains behind them as the sun starts to set. It just helps you take in the awe and wonder of the natural beauty of White Sands National Park.

With couples I also love to take a photo of them kissing with the sun setting between them. I then like to get two varieties of photos of this shot with one well lit and one darker giving a semi silhouette type look.
