We’ve seen the good and the bad when it comes to maternity photos. For whatever reason, pregnancy is an “event” that is apparently difficult to capture in the right way … or even the right light. But when executed well, these can be some of the most beautiful, most inspiring photographs—and ones moms-to-be cherish most, too.
Utah-based photographer Leo Patrone is doing a lot for the case of good maternity photos. He captured his expecting wife on film, and in just the right way—not too posed, and without any props. She looks natural and happy.
Check out some of my favorites from her shoot, after the jump.
The Patrones gave birth to their first (a boy), just a few days ago. Congratulations, Leo! Can’t wait to see the baby photos.
