Outdoor Maternity Session in Richland, Washington | Anne Marie

I enjoyed capturing Anne Marie’s outdoor maternity session during Thanksgiving week, and we were fortunate that the sun made an appearance despite the chilly weather. After a rather gloomy week, the sunshine was a nice surprise! The following days were surrounded by fog, so we lucked out. Anne Marie looked stunning in her gorgeous red dress from Mama Bump Rentals, and I’m excited to show you the beauty of this session.


Embracing different weather conditions during your outdoor maternity session can add a special touch to your photos. Regardless of whether it’s a sunny day or a foggy one, each weather type contributes a distinctive vibe to your images. The unpredictability of nature can make your pictures more interesting, reflecting the variety of experiences in life. Capture cold days with cozy moments, and enjoy warm, golden hues during sunny afternoons. Don’t be afraid of the rain! If you’re up for a bit of adventure, rain can add a cool and unique element to elevate your photoshoot. Roll with whatever weather comes your way, turning it into an opportunity to create maternity photos that are as unique and beautiful as your journey.

Zach and Anne Marie are awaiting their first baby in February 2024, and their due date falls on Valentine’s Day. Anne Marie looked radiant, and the dress she chose was just perfect. Towards the end of the session, Zach noticed a small patch of sunlight and suggested Anne Marie step into it—it was a brilliant idea. He was her best cheerleader throughout the shoot. All this magic happened in about 20 minutes; I believe in keeping things efficient, especially when it’s chilly outside. And the sun sets quickly this time of year.


For the best maternity photo experience, consider booking your session to take place between the 30-36-week mark. This sweet spot ensures a beautifully visible baby bump, and you’ll likely feel at ease for the shoot. Planning ahead allows you to secure a date that works for you and allows us to discuss and collaborate on any location or theme preferences you might have.
