Featured Friday: Rhianna & Raymond | Bradenton Maternity Photos

Bradenton Maternity Photos

It always excites me when I notice that a friend or family member is having a memorable moment in their lives that would benefit from a professional photographer capturing those moments for them to cherish forever. But I tend to not want to be all up in their face like “lemme take those pictures for you!” but kinda just wait my turn, let them ask or bring it up casually.. anyways, long story short… I was STOKED when Rhianna asked me about maternity photos! It’s an incredibly special moment in a couples life and mama-to-be is always so beautiful but doesn’t always feel it.. and I just love capturing that beauty!

So with Rhianna being pretty much a cousin to me, and being a high school friend of Raymond’s, I already knew what I was getting into. If I could describe Rhi in one word it would be indecisive! She didn’t have a clue what she wanted for location, outfits, anything… which ended up working to my benefit because I was able to express to her what I thought would be best and she was fine with it! ((future clients: take notes hehe.))

We chose some property by my parent’s home in East Bradenton, and minus the bugs it was perfect. Juicey, golden, rays of sunshine, overgrown, rustic… and she did it up with beautiful outfits.

It was such a fun session and I am so glad I was able to share this time in Rhianna and Raymond’s life. I can’t wait to meet that baby girl when she makes her appearance and I can’t wait to help Rhianna display her collection of maternity photos and products she chose.

Recently, a good friend of mine asked me a favor. She sent me this message:

“Christina I need your help! I need to find a photographer up in Minnesota to take Cadys first birthday pictures. Where do I look? What should I look for? And what is a good price and what is outrageous?? Helllllp me!!”

Of course I jumped on the opportunity to help a girl out. So first I suggested she fly to Florida and let me photographer her beautiful Cady or offered her to buy & I’ll fly.. hehe. She didn’t go for it so on to researching I went.

So here is the information I gave to my friend Molly, and I’m letting you in on our conversation because I think we’re all friends here and you deserve to be armed with this information as well. Continue reading

Lauren | Maternity Photo Session by Christina Z Photography

Lauren’s Sweet Country Maternity Photos

When Lauren contacted me, the first thing she said was… “I can’t hold out anymore I want some of these great shots you are able to capture!” Super flattering right?! So we started planning. She had ideas in mind and wanted to be sure I would capture the essence of her pregnancy with the focus on the baby. It was so fun being able to create and bring those ideas to life.

Grant + Brittany | Bradenton Maternity Photo Session | Christina Z Photography

Country Maternity Photos

Grant and Brittany are high school friends of mine, good ole Lakewood Ranch High School Alum. They are expecting their first child, a little princess. Brittany was a glowing 35 weeks and 2 days at the time of her maternity session. Which is during my favorite time to photograph an expecting mama. 27-35 weeks is perfect, you can usually push it to the later end with a first time mom.

Molly&David | MATERNITY

Our friends probably never thought they would see the day that I would have 2 month old baby and Molly would have a baby in less than 2 months! It was such an honor to be given the opportunity to photograph a very good friend of mine during this beautiful moment in her life. Molly & David are expecting a little girl! It was amazing to capture Molly’s pregnancy glow. I’m so lucky to be able to capture this for my dear friend.

This was my first lifestyle maternity session, and I am over the moon in love with it! It was such a blast to capture her pregnancy in the nature of her home. Of course we didn’t stop there, and I am so glad we didn’t. The lighting that evening was breathtaking, I’m so thankful for the golden hour! Enjoy!
