Eugene, Oregon maternity photographer: Summer



In keeping with the spring/summer theme that seems to be going on—I have another maternity photography session to share with all of you!

Summer and Ben had their little girl a couple of weeks ago, but we did manage to squeeze in a maternity photography session before her arrival. We chose Zumwalt Park as our location—a spot I don’t often use as it’s a little distance from my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon. Zumwalt Park is located in Veneta on the edge of the Fern Ridge Reservoir, and it’s a wonderfully quiet place as it’s closed to traffic and even parking is limited. I feel like any place near water is bound to be pretty, and Zumwalt Park didn’t disappoint. The volunteers who maintain the park keep it very natural, and there is an abundance of wildflowers dotted throughout the grassy areas, creating both a comfortable carpet and a perfect backdrop for photography. 


As you might imagine, there are a lot of options out there when choosing a maternity photographer, and I’m so glad Summer chose to book her session with me! The selling point for her was the variety of maternity gowns I have available for my clients. I know how important the details are to making a maternity photography session personal as well as beautiful, so I try to keep a good selection of gowns on hand so that expectant mothers can find one they really love. I currently have a dozen maternity gowns to choose from, and I’m always on the lookout for more to add to my collection.

Summer chose the blush solid and tan sheer gowns for her session, and I think they worked beautifully with the location. They also helped to give the photos a very sweet and airy look that is great against the earthier surroundings. 

We were lucky enough to catch a gorgeous sunset at the end of the evening, and the vivid pinks, oranges, and purples spread across the sky over the lake created a spectacular high note on which to finish up our maternity photography session. Such a stunning view. It’s great when nature decides to cooperate with my creative vision!

Summer and Ben are such great people. It was a pleasure to meet them and work with them as they prepared for the arrival of their daughter. It’s such an exciting time of life when you’re getting ready to welcome your very own little one into the world, and I’m so glad I could be there to celebrate with them! I was able to welcome their little girl to my photography studio last week—she is just as pretty and full of life as her mama, and her mom and dad love her so much. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed the maternity photographs of Summer, and keep an eye out for the newborn pictures of Summer and Ben’s little one. Her photos should be on the blog shortly, and I’m excited for all of you to meet her!
