MATERNITY SESSION | TEALA WARD PHOTOGRAPHY | CANYON, TEXAS

Motherhood is amazing to me. I am astounded at the sacrifice and beauty of mothers. I was thrilled when Cheyenne reached out to me to book a session! We did this photo session very close to Mother’s day and it could not have been more perfectly planned. Cheyenne was expecting a little boy and wanted to document this time in her life and her relationship with her daughter and soon to be big sister. Their relationship was so special. I loved watching how the bond that already had years of cultivation and dedication offered so much care and tenderness right in front of me. I was able to see their need for each other and the love that would only grow stronger over the coming years.

It was exciting to see such a great relationship between a mother and her daughter. It gave me so much hope for this little boy to enter the world and have so much love and beauty surround him.

I was also thrilled to be using one of the newer venues here in Texas! This photo session was at Hugo's on the Square in Canyon, Texas. The details in this venue are wonderful! Each area had a different vocal point that isn't too loud and overpowering but created dimension for my photos. I also couldn't get over how great the light was in this venue! Interior lighting can be difficult sometimes to work with but I fell in love with the beautiful fixtures and the way they cast light and shadows in all the right places.

It is my hope that these photos will give Cheyenne and her family wonderful memories to look back on and I am so excited for them to welcome a new baby boy into the world.

Whether you have one child or many, each pregnancy has its own wonderful and miraculous characteristics that make it as unique and individual as the little one inside. Liz decided to just focus on the relationship between her and her growing baby for this maternity shoot and I was thrilled! I enjoy observing the connection between mothers and their grown children they have yet to meet. I find motherhood to be such a blessing and privilege. Having the opportunity to photograph soon to be mothers and current mothers is always worthwhile for me.

My goal for this photo session was to help Liz feel like a goddess at this precious time in her life. Her purple lace maternity dress was dynamite in this location. I found this field of wildflowers while scouting for locations and knew I had to share it with my clients. Liz was amazing as she glided through the wildflowers and as the sun hit all the right places through the trees. We decided to do more traditional poses for this session and really focus on her connection and her excitement about having another child. Traditional maternity poses can be hard for some of my clients because they often come without much direction. I try to take photos of raw emotion and have clients embody their emotions more fully that in everyday life. Again, Liz was wonderful at this. She seamlessly transitioned from one pose to another and I could tell she was in awe of not only this beautiful gift but in awe of her body's ability to create this little baby.

Each type of photo shoot I do comes with its own set of rewards and benefits but maternity sessions are especially magical. I enjoyed each moment I had with Liz and am grateful for the opportunity to document such a wonderful moment in this family's story.
