We don’t often feature maternity sessions, but when Lacie Hansen sent us Nicole and Hiten’s absolutely stunning maternity session, we just couldn’t turn it down. We’re lucky to have featured hundreds of beautiful weddings, but we don’t often get a glimpse into what comes after the wedding day. Love blossoms after marriage, and pregnancy is the perfect time to celebrate it. The birth of a child is the embodiment of your love, and a beautiful maternity session is, in our opinion, an absolute necessity. Spend time together to document the peaceful and quiet days before your little one enters the world.

We love that Lacie and Nicole kept this shoot simple, and we hope it inspires you to take pride and celebrate your body as it changes and gets ready for baby. Don’t be shy. Show off how strong you are. Your children will appreciate it one day.

Tips for creating the perfect natural light maternity session:

-Choose a photographer you love and trust. Your wedding photographer is a great choice. Lacie shot Nicole and Hiten’s wedding in addition to this maternity shoot.

-Keep things simple. Keep your clothing, hair, and makeup minimal and let your body speak for itself.

-Be yourself and choose a location you’re comfortable in. We love maternity sessions at home, where you feel most secure and intimate.

Would you consider a maternity session like this when you’re about to welcome baby?

I have to say, while this is very beautiful, I’m not sure it has a place on a weddings website. Some folks chosing to marry may not be able to or want to have children – I don’t think in this modern day and age that marriage and children always go hand-in-hand, and folks coming to oncewed.com are probably wanting information on weddings and not “what comes after the wedding day”. An odd addition to an otherwise excellent site.
