Hi, I'm Neyssa

In Seattle, where rain is a familiar scene, planning a maternity photo shoot might feel challenging. However, with the right maternity photo shoot ideas, even a rainy day can turn into a beautiful backdrop for your memories. Here’s how we navigate the weather for your perfect session.

Maternity Photo Shoot Ideas: Weather Planning

As your Seattle photographer, I’m always monitoring the weather. I’ll be in touch before your session to make any necessary adjustments. This proactive approach ensures we capture the best moments, rain or shine.

The more flexible you are the more of these options, or ideas, we can use for your maternity shoot.

Rescheduling: Hoping for a drier day.

If the forecast is set to rain, we can look for a drier date. This may mean having your maternity shoot on a weekday evening, or pushing your session out a week or so. This is why I recommend scheduling your maternity photo shoot a bit earlier in your pregnancy, around 32-34 weeks. This flexibility allows us to find the perfect day for your photos without worry of baby coming before your maternity portrait session takes place!

Covered Locations: Rainproof Maternity Photo Shoots

I get it. Life gets busy. Between work & kids, trying to move everything around in hopes for a dry day might be impossible. When rescheduling isn’t an option, we pivot to covered locations. These spots are ideal for embracing the drizzle while keeping you dry. We can always bring along a clear umbrella and jump out into the rain a little bit for a true “Seattle Maternity” photo shoot.

In-Home Sessions: Intimate Maternity Photo Shoot Ideas

For a cozy and intimate alternative, consider an in-home maternity photo shoot. These sessions are relaxed and comfortable, offering a warm setting away from the rain. Cozy up together in the comfort of your own home for your maternity portraits. Another reason to love an in-home maternity session is that they pave the way for a lovely ‘before and after’ with your newborn session.
