It was so wonderful meeting this sweet family, expecting baby number two in just a few short weeks! Their little girl was so adorable, and mommy coordinated outfits perfectly! We didn’t know there would be such gorgeous golden flowers to match baby’s dress!  Gown by Chicaboo and available in the studio for mommies to wear!

So in love with a new gown that has come into the studio!  Who are my Rainbow Moms out there?

A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.  In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

Book your session with Lovely Baby Photography… you’ll have access to use of my entire gown collection (over 50 gowns). www.lovelybabyphotography.com

This gorgeous gown is made by Chicaboo. If you are a photographer and are interested in this gown, you need to contact Chicaboo! Her designs are amazing and affordable! This is a version that we tested out, and she has done some changes to the final design. Excited to share the final design once its done!

I am so excited about these gorgeous images of two moms in new gowns that I have added to my collection.  This is the Grace gown, and I have it in eight colors for my clients to use!  I am so excited to have almost 60 stunning gowns for my clients to use during maternity sessions.  Thank you to Chicaboo  and Jill Stewart (makeup) for working with me to create these images.  I love shooting beautiful mamas to be!  Just a few images for now!

I loved working with this gorgeous mama for her beach maternity session in Carlsbad, CA.  Such a beauty!  There is nothing like a glowing mother to be at the beach!

Loved working with this beautiful mama, expecting her baby any day now!  She was stunning in our maternity gowns that we provide to our clients to use during their session either in the studio or outdoors.  Although I love both styles – studio and outdoor – there is something beautiful and classic about a maternity portrait made in the studio.  So lovely!

Loved meeting this beautiful couple that are expecting triplets!  So exciting!  I love beach sessions… and I always choose locations in the San Diego area that have sheltered areas above the beach, in addition to beautiful sandy beaches.  I have a few favorite spots.  I also provide wardrobe for my clients to use during their maternity session – gorgeous gowns for the mom to be!  I have a beautiful selection, and this gorgeous mama to be wore four different gowns during her San Diego beach maternity session.  I want to make sessions EASY for my clients.  Just show up with your hair and makeup done (I can recommend local makeup artists) and I can have the rest prepared for you!

I will start off by saying that my little ones are not so little any longer.  They are 10 and 12, and although I love the older stage that they are in now I have to admit that I sometimes miss that they were once tiny.  Which is why I love being able to offer these gorgeous Motherhood Sessions in my Carlsbad studio.  I will be releasing dates for these Limited Edition sessions coming up in a few months.  I provide the outfits/gowns and outfits for babies up to one year old.  These nursing / breastfeeding sessions are best for babies under a year.  The little ones tend to be distracted as they get older.  Both of these sweet little ones were 8 months old.

Something about the all ivory set and babies bonding over breastfeeding with mom, is something that lasts for just a short time.  What an amazing time to capture through portraits!

To be added to our list and receive information on these sessions when they happen, please contact stacey@lovelybabyphotography.com

Loved working with beautiful mom to be, for her third pregnancy.  She looks fabulous!

I provide a gorgeous selection of wardrobe for my clients to use during maternity sessions.  This takes a lot of work out of your session – you don’t need to bring anything!  I am new to Carlsbad, but I have already started connecting with other local businesses.  Including the amazingly talented Claire of Claire Alyse Makeup, who did hair and makeup for our gorgeous mama.  I highly recommend working with Claire for your maternity session.  You want to look your best, and she does an incredible job!
