Nestled amongst the beautiful landscape of Southern California, Thousand Oaks makes for the perfect backdrop to have your maternity session. There are so many locations in the Thousand Oaks area that provide rolling hills, warm golden sunlight and beautiful serene landscapes. This Thousand Oaks family maternity photo session is a perfect way to take a look at how documenting your baby before they are born can create some of the most timeless images. Let’s celebrate the beauty of motherhood even with all of it’s hardships and create moments that you can look back on with your child for many years.
The beauty that is created during a session in Thousand Oaks comes alive during the golden hour. It’s that magical time where the sun is beginning to glow softly, it truly is so gorgeous. However, we know if you have toddlers they may not be willing to function at that hour and that is totally OK. I have shot countless sessions mid day or morning and they have turned out so beautifully. That is when location is key and matters the most. Also, having a professional photographer help guide you through the process is also crucial so they can recommend tips and tricks for this situation.
Another reason working with a professional photographer is great is when it comes to what to wear to your maternity session. My favorites are soft pastels, flowy/whimsical dresses and colors that will compliment the Thousand Oaks terrain. The most important thing though- make sure you feel comfortable mama. If you are comfortable you will likely feel more beautiful and when you FEEL more beautiful you will photograph with more ease. One of my favorite shops to recommend is Nothing Fits But– they are soo comfy and flattering. They even have matching dresses for your daughter, if you have a baby girl already or are expecting one, this is so fun!
Having these memories to look back on before you bring this special human into the world is something you will never forget. I have multiple packages to choose from if you are interested in capturing these special days leading up to baby’s arrival. You can see my packages here (scroll to the bottom) for ones that include newborn photos, milestone sessions and more! I also have the option to choose an a la carte package. Either way, I would love to get in touch below! I hope this Thousand Oaks family maternity photo session made for great inspiration for you and your families photos.
