I found these old buildings next to Glendale Shoals in Spartanburg, SC after a recent photo shoot.

An introduction into the world of maternity photos

Filed under: Photography — Tags: , , — JW @ 8:42 pm

Photos were taken at Glendale Shoals, in Spartanburg, SC of my good friends Tim & Hailey with their daughter, Hayden.  This is my first attempt with maternity shots and should be some good practice, since I have another shoot coming up in two weeks.

This was fun and I enjoyed taking these in an outdoor area with some architecture around.  I really enjoy the contrast of the new, growing life with this decaying, old bridge.  It was a challenge to integrate the gorgeous backgrounds without taking away from the highlight of the photos; motherhood.  Maternity pictures are all about the mother, much like a wedding is to a bride.  Combining outside elements like rocks, trees, bridges and sky instead of using a studio and simple backdrops was tough, but easier than I expected.  I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but this was also my first time at this location.
