With this shoot I wanted to go bigger, bolder, more extravagant. For this maternity photo shoot I partnered with Preeti from Bindis and Bottles and The Big Fat Indian Wedding to create an awesome Indian-style inspired maternity concept.
We included two separate looks – the first was a multi-colored glitter and gold. Early that day I went to Trader Joe’s and bought some fresh sunflowers, marigolds and mums. I also collected a bunch of wild flowers from my own garden.
Kim from KSB Artistry worked her magic, and took Preeti’s cue to go bold and bright with the makeup. Preeti also brought some of her own authentic gold jewelry to really bring the drama. Of course, I couldn’t help throwing in some multi-colored glitter!
Our second look was more subtle, with pastel colors and peonies. These items I already had in my collection, but we had to add a bit of bling to bring the magic and show off Preeti’s aesthetic.
This session took hours to set up and photograph, 60 gallons of water, more glitter and flowers than I can count as well as days of retouching. It was SO WORTH IT.
