Scottsdale Maternity Photography | Christian & Julianne

Desert maternity sessions are always something I love to photograph! Christian and Julianne are the sweetest couple and are getting ready to welcome their baby girl Nora into the world. We had a long stretch of overcast, rainy and cloudy days here in Phoenix, which can put a damper on any outside photo shoot. Julianne and Christian were such troopers working around the weather to shoot their maternity session early since rain was in the forecast. Of course I will always vote for a pretty sunny day with gorgeous sun flares for a maternity session but overcast can really work in your favor at times. Overcast weather can act like a giant softbox and allow you to shoot in any direction which is a plus for a open sky desert location.

Julianne came prepared with 2 stunning maternity gowns and a beautiful floral babies breathe crown she made herself!! Her red hair and maroon gown from Embie Baby blew me away and went perfectly with the rocks and colors of the desert. They also brought a darling little princess gown to use when their princess Nora is born and I can’t wait to meet her!
