As members of my Dynamite Baby Plan, the Colon Family knew they wanted to do Javier’s 18 month pictures. But they also wanted to really focus on Nesmary’s maternity pictures. So they decided to hold onto the last session in their baby plan until Javier’s second birthday. And instead they booked a private family mini session this past fall. And then Nesmary volunteered to model for my first ever maternity milk bath.
Nesmary missed the chance to get maternity images while pregnant with Javier. So the maternity pictures were really important to her this time around.

Private Fall Family Mini Session
We started out with the family session at the end of October. Unfortunately, it was still hot out, and little Javier just wanted to run around and play. Normally this would be okay, but we were at Saguaro National Park, and at only 18 months old, he had very little awareness of cactii yet. So we all had to stay pretty close, which combined with the heat, made Javier a little cranky. He had little interest in sitting in anyone’s laps, or being held for more than a few seconds at a time. But with a liberal amount of tickles, and Daddy running circles around me like a crazy person, we managed to get some great interactive family portraits.
If possible, I believe that every expecting momma deserves a beautiful maternity sunset silhouette!
Maternity Milk Bath & Studio Session
About two weeks later, Nesmary came back to my studio to do some solo Maternity portraits, including my first ever maternity milk bath session.
First, we started out in the studio with some of the more classic maternity poses in long flowy dresses & draped lacey fabric.
Nesmary told me that she bought this bracelet to wear in her wedding & always intended to give it to her future daughter. I thought that it was such a nice touch when Nesmary included this bracelet in her baby girl’s maternity photos. What a treasure this image, and that bracelet, will be to her daughter someday!
I love that she was willing to do a nude portrait as well! What a great model!
After the studio portion was completed, we moved on to the maternity milk bath. I definitely learned a few new tips & tricks after this first time around, but I couldn’t have asked for a better model. She is undeniably gorgeous & fit, as well as patient, but best of all she was willing to share her beautiful pregnant belly with the world.
All in all, I couldn’t have asked for more out of these studio images, or from the maternity milk bath. Thank you Nesmary, for your excellent maternity modeling work!
