Maternity Gallery

Maternity Portrait in Philadelphia's City Hall

Maternity sessions are a special option for parents-to-be to not only commemorate their last times as a single couple but also to document all of the amazing changes mom's body is going through. Our happy parents to be chose center city Philadelphia for their maternity session. The ultimate goal was to be tourists in their own city. We captured so many gorgeous images at Love Park and the Comcast Building but this photo at City Hall was one of my favorites. I love the warmth of the light fixture hanging in the entrance. The ambient light inside City Hall is always gorgeous to begin with. The balance of shadows inside and natural light pouring in the entranes mixed with the neutral tones of the stone walls always create dramatic and stunning photos. Sometimes capturing images in the city can be difficult especially when you coming evening light with the rush hour commute. Sometimes photographers just need to be strategic when taking photos or they need to ask people to move aside. Sometimes, photographers will just need to fix the crowds in post processing. This photo in particular had many trash cans in the back which was unfortunately something we couldn't move out of the way.
