Maternity Photoshoot for the most loving expecting family

It is rightly said that you will never understand life till it grows inside you. A gift from the heaven, pregnancy is the closest we can be to magic. This beautiful moment needs to be captured. Maternity photographers at Oxana Alex Photography studio understand this. It is very easy for mothers to be to feel uncomfortable and less confident when they are expecting, which often makes them question photo shoots. However, we at Oxana Alex studio ensure that the mothers not only look, but also feel beautiful and confident. 

Not only studio backgrounds, but we also offer a variety of dresses and props that increase the prestige of the photo shoot. Since every expecting mother is different, we ensure that their distinct personalities are captured. One of the most important aspects of every maternity shoot is to communicate with the mothers to be. Knowing about their journey and knowing them plays a very important factor in making a good photo shoot. We treat every mother to be that comes to us as our best friend because after all, what is better than getting clicked by someone you feel at ease with. 

The connection between the photographer and the mother is probably the most important aspect of any shoot. We at Oxana Alex Photography ensure to establish not only a good connection, but to also make new friends. To us, every maternity shoot is as important as if it was one of our own. Making the mother comfortable and excited is another one of our qualities that work for the amazing pregnancy photographs. Most of the times, the photographers are more excited than the mother to be, making them give their best.

What makes a maternity photography more significant and magical is the presence of the family. Often the excitement of the father to be is neglected and fails to be captured. However, at Oxana Alex Photography studio, we ensure that the couples raw emotions are perfectly captured. 

For this shoot, we choose a beautiful, blowy yellow gown that, according to the mother to be, was extremely comfortable. Shot in a Forest background, the photo shoot enables us to capture this magic of nature, in nature. The fathers’ presence in the photography made it even more important and significant. For the next photo, we chose a beautiful white lace gown with a slit. The purpose behind this outfit was to bring out the mothers gentleness and her happiness. The Flower crown added to her innocence. We also chose a mermaid blue gown along with a tree setting. The metaphor behind this photo, growth of life, made the photograph even more important and interesting. 

Beach maternity photo shoots are another famous and most sought after sessions. The sea breeze, ocean water and beautiful chiffon gowns make these moments magical. Especially when the cape behind the gown blows with the wind, it gives the perfect Angel look. The presence of the father makes this shoot even more enchanting. 

So if you are a mother to be, looking for a maternity shoot, Oxana Alex Photography is the perfect place!

The idea of taking photos of your pregnancy may look or sound unwanted at first blush, but a quick look at a quality maternity photography catalogue will remove all your aesthetic doubts. The bright, airy, and illuminating production style of a good maternity photo cannot be replicated in any other time or using any other format. 

 

Oxana Alex Photography celebrates passion for the maternal moment and its remarkable ability to inspire the greatest revolutions in a mother’s heart. Born out of a hope to capture what is ultimately significant and meaningful in a woman’s life in an age of constant flux and digital chaos. Mothers and fathers continue to draw joyous inspiration from witnessing their miraculous child-giving journey unfold. 

 

From a photographer's perspective, the key things we concentrate on when photographing maternity is the light and angles of our pregnant client. In fact, nearly every single one of our clients say they chose us because the way I use natural light to give that gorgeous, soft backlit look. In terms of posing, I usually give gentle direction as to how best to stand to show off baby bumps in a flattering understated way. 

 

In terms of color, it’s really important to choose dresses which are going to tone with the natural landscape and the golden sunset light, if photographing at that time of day. Floral dresses are usually most congenial to the professional lens, and the soft tones of the natural pattern makes the photo pop even more.

 

Sunset is our favorite time of day for outdoor maternity shoots, with the golden hour giving everything an amazing warm glow - whilst colder weather is ahead of us, the light during the autumn months can be absolutely magical as the sun dips lower in the sky. And the best part of it is that no two sessions are ever the same because the angle of the sun is always changing!

MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY:          A Journey Through The Memories

 

Introduction & History

Everybody wants to capture the precious moments of their life through clicks & pics. Whether its marraigeor the birthday of the spouse, we never forget to click a photo.Similarly, pregnancy is not an exception nowadays. In recent times, maternity photography is in vogue. Not only celebrity like Shakira, Boyence or SerenaWilliams is a fanof this, but also a hugenumber of common women are preserving their maternity moment through this. Actually,photography of the maternity session recreates exactly the same moment years after as well as boasts the worthiness of our reminiscence by taking us back in the time. 

Well, this fashion was introduced in 1991, when Demi Morre clicked her nude pregnancy cover for Vanity Fair. It produced the filling of highness that pregnancy is not a thing to hidebut to celebrate with glory.

 

Purposes & Repercussions

Mostly the purpose of this photography is to capture the body during pregnancy, the weight, the look and several other minor mentions.

When it wasasked to a bunch ofelderly women that

….. What they think about Maternity photo shoot?

-we were amazed to find that they were really excited about this new trend in commons. They are pleased with the fact that women nowadays are not assuming their increased weight and shape as a problem. Instead,they are happily want to preserve their look during their pregnancy in a manual reminiscence frame. 

There are myriads of reasons to go for a photo shoot of this kind. The most relevant and notable one is that in the future years you won’t regret …” whyI have not collected the picture during the pregnancy?

In the below segment we are going to discuss why photo shoot during pregnancy is exciting as well as important. These pregnancy photos would be something to cherish at the old age.

 

 

A photo shootduring pregnancy: How thrilling it is?

Mostly, women during pregnancy thinkthat they are looking terrible because of their increased weight and shape, but do you ever think that how generous you are to bring a new life tothe earth. Pregnancy is the overwhelming, amazing and most glamorous thing that can happen to women. Most importantly, women feel uncomfortable of the bulging belly during pregnancy which is awful but actually,it is beautifully curved.

The maternity photographer plays a vitalrole in this photo shoot as she is responsible for making you elegant, gorgeous and even more glorified. So that when you see the photograph of your pregnancy, a kind reminiscence will make you admire yourself. 

 

Once in a lifetimeopportunity

If someone is not getting their pregnancy photographed, they are losing the opportunity to capture memories of their pregnancy. Even if you are not interested in photography, then also you can go for this, at least for your young ones. Years later, when the kids will be grown up and they would visualize these pictures of your pregnancy, they will be amazedto see how they were growing in the belly of her/ his mumma.

Maternity photo shoot is full of fun and laughs. Unlike an everyday photographer or a novice, maternity photographers come with a lot of exciting creative pose. You should prepare your homework, for example,trail the dress or check out which apparel are in the trend. You can definitely develop your own idea by mixing yours with the photographer’s idea, it will be uniquely fascinating.

Indoor & outdoor session with Los Angeles maternity photographer Oxana Alex.

Maternity photography is elegant and beautiful, a unique opportunity to take care of the story from the beginning. To capture visualized memories from the pregnancy phase leading up to the much anticipated arrival of the newborn baby. Many say (and I do agree wholeheartedly) that women are never more beautiful than when they are pregnant. It is not always that the pregnant mother-to-be feels like this, but there is extraordinary beauty to the process of creating a new life. Anyway, it is very worthwhile (I would say essential) to document this period of life in the best way possible. The golden rule to achieve maternity photo success is with a professional photographer specializing in the field. You want a maternity photographer that truly understands the process, who nurtures and makes you feel comfortable in order to bring out the best and also caters to your particular wants and needs for the session.

All my Los Angeles pregnancy photos are taken with an innate focus on elegance and aesthetic beauty. Many clients also opt to incorporate some ageless and classic black and white photography in their maternity or family photography sessions. When committing to professional pregnant photography, it is much appreciated that you share thoughts and requests about what you want with the maternity photographer. If I photograph you with clothes, it's important that you choose clothes that emphasize shapes rather than disguising them. When photographing underwear, it is nice if you have several types and colors to chose from. If you want pregnancy photos without any kind of clothing, it is advisable to bring a robe for breaks. But we will of course provide one if you forget to bring your favorite.

I use different lighting techniques, compositions and various cameras to create very special and expressive memories of your pregnancy. It is by all means okay to bring a family partner and any siblings to complement the session.

Oxana Alex specializes in Los Angeles family photography, maternity photography, and newborn/baby/child photography.

Indoor Los Angeles maternity photography appointment.

This glowing couple is well on their way to becoming a family of three. Opting for a relaxing and comfortable indoor shoot here at our in-house location. Please indulge in their gorgeous maternity photos courtesy of Oxana Alex Photography in Brentwood, Los Angeles.

The mother is absolutely stunning as she supports her tummy surrounded by her magnificent dresses. Pink and blue colors both match and highlight her beautiful hair. She radiates happiness. Who cares if it is a boy or a girl. As long as we become a family union of three. Keeping a watchful eye on that valuable baby bump cargo. Any day now…and you can be certain this family has lots of plans for the celebration. But first things first.

A key component is to properly capture that essential journey to the final destination of childbirth with lots of maternity photos. And then we´ll be back for family photography, not to mention cake smash and other fun things child and parents will want to remember.  Together, those important calendar days. Whether the memories are stored on the fireplace mantel, in photo books, on the computer, blown up posters adorning the walls or in an old school wallet. Anything and anyplace goes, as long as the magic moments are captured.  Forever.

The soon to be proud parents showcasing the obligatory first plaything presents awaiting the little one upon arrival. Furry toys to grab at, cuddle and grow fond of. Family memories in the making. The first baby stroller. There will no doubt be many more four and two wheeled vehicles for this baby boy or girl.

The California sun makes its presence known in the background. Illuminating the curtains and adding natural light, bright rays and shimmers of future hope and dreams to this already blissful union.

Flowers crowns, floral adornments and bouquets add to the beauty and merriment of the occasion.


What a joyful gift life is.

More Than A Mother

by Kari Keshmiry

When God set the world in place,
when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea,
then He made you and me. 

He sat back and saw all that was good,
He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store;
He created a mother, but whatever for? 

He knew a mother would have a special place
to shine His reflection on her child's face.
A mother will walk the extra mile
just to see her children smile.

She'll work her fingers to the bone
to make a house into a home.
A mother is there to teach and guide,
a mother will stay right by your side.

She'll be there through your pain and strife,
she'll stay constant in your life.
A mother will lend a helping hand
until you have the strength to stand.

She'll pick you up when you are down,
when you need a friend she'll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well,
will keep her word; will never tell.

A mother never pokes or pries
but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need,
encouraging you to succeed.

A mother is one who can be strong
when you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me;
a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries.

I'm glad that you chose to be
all this and more to me.
You share a love that knows no end,
you're more than my mother,
you are my friend.

Family - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

She came to me so sweetly, 
life bubbling from within her
strong as an angel's beating wings; 

more spirit than child
yet emerging as a person
into this life full blown  
brimming with that
unconscious happiness
youth brings.

Understand: 

every parent feels this way
about every child, 

no matter what happens
in the in-between; 

no matter the heart-ache
the Bond remains; 

no matter how battered
the relationship, 
trust the love
is there beneath
the frown; 

no matter the arguments, 
the confusion; 
the mayhem; 

that love is there for you.
It came with your birth
and never dies.

Even love badly expressed
feint and halting
and not enough-
even never expressed; 
it is still love.

Disappointments come
from love not hate
only indifference is fatal; 

And, you love them too.
Yes, you do.

They are planted in your soul's soil
forever; 
indelibly.

They brought life to you.

Yours is the sacred Bond

Mother and Child
Father and Child
Family
alway present
in mind and heart
never gone.

O mother-my-love, if you'll give me your hand,
And go where I ask you to wander,
I will lead you away to a beautiful land,- 
The Dreamland that's waiting out yonder.
We'll walk in a sweet posie-garden out there,
Where moonlight and starlight are streaming,
And the flowers and the birds are filling the air
With the fragrance and music of dreaming.

There'll be no little tired-out boy to undress,
No questions or cares to perplex you,
There'll be no little bruises or bumps to caress,
Nor patching of stockings to vex you; 
For I'll rock you away on a silver-dew stream
And sing you asleep when you're weary,
And no one shall know of our beautiful dream
But you and your own little dearie.

And when I am tired I'll nestle my head
In the bosom that's soothed me so often,
And the wide-awake stars shall sing, in my stead,
A song which our dreaming shall soften.
So, Mother-my-Love, let me take your dear hand,
And away through the starlight we'll wander,- 
Away through the mist to the beautiful land,- 
The Dreamland that's waiting out yonder.

Please take a look at some sneak peack of this expecting family photoshoot. 

 

You are the one who brought me along,
You are the one who sang me that song.
You are the one who taught me all there was to learn.
You are the one who helped me not to burn.
You are the one who taught me to love,
You are the one who's sent from above. 
You are the one who loves me so dear,
You are the one who was there for every tear.
You are the one who never left my side,
You are the one who kept me alive.
You are the one who cared for me each day,
You are the one who showed me God and how to pray.
You prayed that every day would be a joyous day,
And asked God to come into your heart and stay
I can't believe how much and how fast I have grown,
But I know I can always rely on you when I feel alone.
I Love You Mom!!!

Dedicated to Mary DeVincentz.

Beautiful family in my Los Angeles Studio today. The little cutie will be a bi sister soon.


I loved you from the very start...

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.



Our life together has just begun,

You're part of me, my little one.



As mother with child, each day I knew

My mind would be filled with thoughts of you.

I'm daydreaming of the things we'll share,

Like late-night bottles and teddy bears.

Like first steps and skinned knees,

Like bedtime stories and ABC's.



I'm thinking of things you'll want to know,

Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I've thought of lessons I'll need to share,

Like standing tall and playing fair.



When I first see your precious face,

I'll pray your life be touched with grace.

I'll thank the angels from above,

And promise you unending love.



Each night I'll lay you down to sleep,

I'll gently kiss your head and cheek.

I'll count your little fingers and toes,

I'll memorize your eyes and nose.



I will linger at your nursery door,

Awed each day that I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I'll dim the light,

And whisper, ???????I love you??????? every night.



As mother with child our journey's begun,

My heart's yours forever, little one.



I loved you from the very start...

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

The Heavens Have Blessed Me

Andrea Grey

 

I have a baby girl
who is my shinning light.
She is my morning star
that makes my world so bright!

When she sees me
she greets me with a hug.
She curls up so tiny,
like a little bug!

She's full of smiles and laughs and giggles galore.
It breaks your heart when she cries
because she tripped and hit the floor.

She has a smile that can light up a room.
It's as big as a bright full moon

She has tiny ringlets
of golden curls.
Her skin shimmers
like freshwater pearls.

She is my life, my love,
my heart, my soul.
When we are together
we are complete as one whole!

The Power Of Family

 Antony Smith

 

Family is, 
heaven sent from our father above, 
bonded by the power of love.
No matter what family has each others back,
when push comes to shove.

Family is, 
understanding, never demanding, 
all for one and one for all, 
I will never leave you alone standing.

Family is, 
one in itself, my love is your love, 
your pain is my pain, my wealth is your wealth, 
I promise to never leave you by yourself.

Family is, 
the strongest team, the strongest unit; 
if love could be visualized, 
family would be the blue print.

Family is, 
forgiveness and patience, 
it's sweeter than the sweetest fragrance, 
the power of family is a reflection of God's compassion and magnificence.

Family is, 
never turning our back, and never shames, 
lend my helping hand and not a finger pointing the blame.

No matter what, a family bond can never be broken, 
even through a nuclear explosion,
if one of us lives we all live.  
Forever to eternity, we are family, 
my father, my mother, my sisters and me.

Antony-Tyrone Smith

Riches

Jeanne D. Rhein

 

They say that times were tough then
That money was very tight
But I remember my childhood
And I know that can't be right

Mom would cook our dinner
Dad came home at five
We were all sitting at the table
Waiting for him to arrive

We wouldn't eat from a microwave
Or a restaurant down the street
We all ate Mom's home cooking
And boy that can't be beat

We didn't eat in front of the TV
Or with a phone in our hand
We weren't plugged into a stereo
bopping to the latest band

We would all sit at the table
Everyone in their place
There were never any surprises
We recognized every face

Brothers to the left of me
Sisters to the right
That's the way we ate dinner
Every single night

We laughed we joked we talked we ate
We were a family don't you see
Though some may have been raised poor
You can see it wasn't me

We ate collards we ate biscuits
We ate fatback and blackeyed peas
We said yes sir we said no sir
We said thank you ma'am and please

So when you talk of family life
Or how it used to be
Though many had more money
None were as rich as me

My Baby, My Butterfly

 Geneveive C. Coulson

 

To my child,
May you never be afraid to fly.
May you always keep the innocence that you hold at this young age.
When you are out on a branch and you feel it shake, have faith that it will steady itself again.
Enjoy your individual beauty and uniqueness; never wish that it would change.
When you fly go in a direction that will take you places to happiness, don't be distracted by those which will not.
You start out so small and fragile, unable to take flight, with time may you be able to fly on your own.
I look at you now knowing how blessed I am, to have the baby, the butterfly, I have.
May you spread your wings and fly without doubt.
I hope that you will give yourself the chance to let your mind wonder, and show you the way.
When you spread your wings and fly, know that I will always be there flying next to you, guiding you in the right direction, giving you the strength to wait out the storm, being the one to steady the branch.
Above all else know that I love you, my baby and my butterfly, and that you always have my open wings to fly back to.

Just a few highlits from our in stidio session  

Rhythms

 Michael Crill

 


Expanding fragments
of the mind
unfold, yet
leave the heart
behind, torn.

All are immigrants
in time.
Deaf ears, too dead
to hear new rhyme.

Youth hear and
feel
a tune so new
that elders can
not
grasp a clue,
and so the rhythms
of their past
fill up mind voids.

So feet stay cast
in absolutes
of black and white,
while youth
feel
gray color's right.

And thus
they stand
so far apart,
though blood's the same
within the heart.

Their world's
Not same, and they are
torn
by space
and time
when both were born.

Just You And Me

Danny Blackburn

 

I promise my devotion, honest and true
I would give up life just for you

I am at times without words to say
But I never forget to tell you that I love you each day

I was a child who had not much in life until one fall day
That was when God sent me you and you helped me to find my way

We were young, and I could not drive
But just to walk and talk with you made me feel so alive

I would place you on my shoulders and carry you home from school
A half mile walk it was, I did it for love and not to be cool

I would run from my home to yours every day
And while I was running, do you know what I prayed

I prayed to God that if I ran all the way
That God would make you my wife someday

God did answer those prayers, it's true
Because I was blessed and able to marry you

Now here we are in trying times
Please don't give up, let's pray and I trust that we will be fine

I am so blessed to have known you in this life
Please don't give up, I love you my wonderful wife

We have been together in love for so long
To give up now would just be so wrong

Just look at our names and it easy to see
We were meant to be together, just you and me

Too many it's Pam and Dan, yep that's me and you
But I swear to my Pammy that Danny will always be true

I love you Pammy that can't you see
Without you, My Pammy, there is no me

You are in my thoughts every step of my way.
Although you are grown and far away,
I know when you're happy or having a bad day.
Just being your mom, I know your way.
I remember the days when Dawnie and you
Would gaze out our window, enjoying the view.
the nightly ritual, forever in my head
of a piggy-back ride, on your way to bed.
I wish, so often for a moment with you
Not sharing this time, with all, that you do.
Although, I understand and truly care;
I still wish to reach out, and just stroke your hair.
there are times, when I wish, for a hug, and a kiss;
perhaps I just need to tell you all this.

As I Watch You Grow

Kay Theese

 

Do you know how much you mean to me?
As you grow into what you will be.
You came from within, from just beneath my heart.
It's there you'll always be, though your own life will now start.
You're growing so fast it sends me awhirl, 
With misty eyes I ask, Where's my little girl?
I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, 
But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.
The next few years will so quickly fly, 
With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry.
As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, 
You'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear, 
For all you dreams and goals sit before you very near.
With God's love in your heart and the world by its tail, 
You'll always be my winner, and victory will prevail.
For you this poem was written, with help from above, 
To tell you in a rhythm of your Mother's heartfelt love!
