White Sands maternity session for Sarah

Updated: Aug 11, 2023

Sarah lived in Clovis, NM contacted me through my contact page to let me know that she was interested in a maternity shoot and wanted something with mountains in them.

Since it was going to be late November when we would do the session the mountains themselves would be rather cold plus no foliage. She also wanted a sunset so I suggested White Sands National park for her session since I could get both the mountains and hopefully a sunset at that location.

She also asked if she could use one of her own gowns as she had ordered her own. I told her of course she could and that I keep my gowns in stock since a good quality maternity gown can take 2-4 weeks to come in but she is welcome to wear her own.

It was also important for her to have her husband in her photos and I assured her that all of my packages include photos of her, her significant other, and any other children that they have.

When the date of her session rolled around she informed me that her gowns had not come in. I let her know again that there are no additional costs to wear one of my maternity gowns and linked her to my online gallery of over 170 maternity gowns.

She liked this taupe long flowing gown which is one of my popular gowns but it looked like it was made for her.

I was able to capture a beautiful sunset scenic photo for her. This is a common request with my photos at White Sands and I always tell folks it's really up to the weather on what we get. This day we were fortunate that we had some light cloud cover for the sun to reflect against while it set.

I also love to capture a kiss between the couple during the sunset and try to capture the sun between them. Here I captured at different angles and light settings to give both a lit and silhouetted version of the shot.
