Oregon Coast Maternity Session

There is something so incredibly magical about the Oregon Coast. It’s a location that beautifully complements the complete joy of welcoming a new baby Earth-side! As a Eugene, Oregon based maternity photographer, venturing to the Oregon Coast for growing families is a joy! This beautiful couples love for adventure and each other made this Oregon Coast maternity session such a dream. We hiked through the dunes, down to the beach, and it was such a dream.

When is the best time to schedule a maternity session?

As a Eugene, Oregon maternity photographer, and mother, I recommend scheduling your maternity session from 30-36 weeks. This is to insure you are still comfortable and the risk of going into labor is relatively low. I’ve realized that the ultimate sweet spot for maternity sessions is right around the 32 week mark.

Choosing a location for your maternity pictures

When considering locations for your maternity session there are numerous factors to consider. All of which should fit your comfort level and personality.

  • Restroom accessibility – It goes without question that pregnancy increases the number of restroom visits you take in a day. So when choosing a location for your maternity session, we always consider restroom accessibility for mamas comfort.
  • Sentimental locations – Did you fall in love on the Oregon Coast? Was your wedding held in an Oregon State Park? Or do you simply feel complete happiness every time you walk through a Eugene city garden? Personalized and sentimental locations add so much meaning to your maternity photos. These locations will instantly make you feel more nostalgic as you look back on your maternity photos throughout the years. This beautiful couple took me on a lovely hike on the Oregon Coast where they had their first date. Which was both beautiful and special to them. It is also somewhere they can bring their daughter back to someday. Which melts my heart.
  • In your home – Are you looking for the ultimate comfortable and intimate maternity vibes? I love in home maternity sessions because they create such a feeling of peace and calmness. A room with good natural window lighting is perfect for in home maternity sessions. Keeping it casual with bare feet, jeans, and a cute bra has a great timeless feel.

Make the most out of your Oregon Coast maternity session

Why not turn your maternity session into a baby moon? The Oregon Coast is not only a stunning backdrop for your maternity session. It’s also a wonderful place to escape to. My favorite towns within a two hour drive of Eugene, Oregon are Florence, Yachats, and Newport Oregon. Each town has its own feel and are equally beautiful for the adventure lovers. As well as those looking for a romantic getaway.
