Fairfield County Maternity Photographer | Beach Maternity Session in Darien | Kristin Wood Photography

Ah, this beach maternity session in Fairfield County was truly magical. This sweet couple resides in Fairfield, Connecticut and is excited to be welcoming their first child soon! They are First Year Collective members so I am thrilled to get to work with them to document the incredibly special year ahead with their baby!

Michelle and I had an in person meeting to discuss what all they were looking for in a newborn photographer and about their previous experiences with photographers. We also discussed what they had in mind for their maternity session. After we set the date for the session, I contacted my makeup artist, Angelina with Beautymarked Studio, and booked her for the session. Angelina went to my client’s home that afternoon and gave her a natural, glowy look for the session. Michelle also went to Le Boudior for an awesome blow out. I was so excited to her text that afternoon saying how much she was loving this day of pampering, which is always my goal! I always want the client’s to feel special and have a memorable experience! Once she had her hair and makeup done, they drove to the studio and she tried on lots of dresses from the Client Closet until she found the perfect dress! She wanted something simple and something with sleeves. Her selection was spot on and looked amazing on her!

After we settled on her husband’s outfit, we headed out to Weed Beach in Darien. Weed Beach is one of my favorite places for sessions! The weather seriously could not have been more perfect it was sunny and low 70s with just a slight breeze- the best!

Without further aideu, enjoy their gorgeous beach maternity session!

Beach Maternity Session in Connecticut | Fairfield County Maternity Photographer Kristin Wood

This beach maternity sessions was so much fun….and filled with some crazy strong winds! My clients came to the studio prior to the session for Mom to select a dress from the Client Closet. While she was trying on different options, we checked the weather and it was cloudy, but no rain in the forecast. Mom selected this gorgeous Fillyboo Maternity dress in a perfect shade of blush pink and we headed to Weed Beach in Darien.

When we arrived at the beach, the wind was intense! Even thought the beach is only 3 miles from my studio, it can be totally different weather at the beach! We decided just to work with the wind and it made for some amazing windblown dress and hair photographs!

Connecticut beaches (especially in Fairfield County) are pretty rocks with little to no waves due to Long Island. They are pretty and unique in their own way and are my favorite outdoor location for sessions. This session was shot at low-tide (as opposed to the maternity session a few posts back that was shot at high tide) so the beach looks very different!

This couple was so sweet and a lot of fun to work with! I loved all the tattoos (don’t they look so neat in photographs?!) and am looking forward to meeting their baby very soon for Newborn photos!

Connecticut Maternity Photographer | Fairfield County Beach Maternity Session by Kristin Wood Photography

Ah beach maternity sessions make my heart sing. The beach is definitely my happy place, which was a huge selling point when we decided to settle in Darien (with Westport being a close second but the added commute for my husband made Darien the ideal sleepy Connecticut town for us….but I digress). Weed Beach is such a beautiful spot and is always my go-to spot for beach photography sessions.

Maternity photos are often under-rated, but I think they are so important. As a woman, we are only pregnant for a very short time in our life. It is a time that we look forward to and dream about long before it ever happens. We wonder what it will feel like to be growing a little life inside our belly and what we will look like with a bump. It is also a transformative time in your life as a couple. It is the last time it will ever be “just the two” of you. There is so much awe, excitement, and anxiousness being shared between you while you are expecting your baby. I just think it is such a unique and special time in your lives and a time you will always want to look back on and remember. Lastly, your kids will love looking at photos of you when they were in your belly!

This soon-to-be Mama booked a Bump-to-Baby collection which includes the maternity and newborn session. She came to the studio before the session to pick out her dresses. Her husband was so fun and helpful with styling her for the session! I love when husband’s have opinions (mine is almost always right when it comes to what looks best on me and I find that to be the case every time with clients too!). She selected 2 gorgeous maternity dresses from the Client Closet and we headed to the beach for their session!

It was sprinkling when we left my studio, but we made the call to go for it. Once we made the short drive to the beach, it never rained another drop and the sun even came out at the very end of the session! I’m obsessed with these gloomy skies portraits (we get a lot of gloomy weather here so they are fitting for the East Coast! ha!) and how her dress perfectly matched the water.

Enjoy!
