Romantic Longwood Gardens Maternity Session | Inspiration for Maternity Photos in Philadelphia 

Maternity photos in Philadelphia at Longwood Gardens photographed by Philadelphia maternity photographer Samantha Jay Photography

Julie, Phil, and their daughter Millie are expecting their next sweet baby girl, Maeve! To celebrate this special time for their family, we planned maternity photos in Philadelphia at one of my favorite spots: Longwood Gardens! Their summer session was a joy to photograph and I can’t wait to see them once Maeve has arrived for her newborn session since they signed on for my Maternity & Newborn plan! Until then, I’m so excited to be sharing this beautiful summer Longwood Gardens maternity session.

For their session, Julie chose a beautiful pale pink dress with a slight boho feel from the client closet. We pulled a romper from the client closet for Millie that coordinated perfectly. In fact, I absolutely loved all of the pastel colors they chose to include in their outfits. The client wardrobe that I offer has been hand selected because I know the pieces will photograph beautifully and fit well on pre and postpartum mamas. The calm colors looked amazing against the greenery and flowers throughout Longwood Gardens!

One of the things I loved most about this session was how much we got to focus on the soon to be big sister, Millie. Maternity sessions are not only a time to celebrate welcoming a new member of the family but they really are a time to embrace the family unit you have made up to that point as well.

Millie was incredible at the session and we went at her pace, as I always do with families with little ones. She was happy to explore and spend some quality time with mom and dad. Millie was going from being an only child to big sister and celebrating that is also important. These images of Millie make my heart so happy and I know she’s going to be a wonderful big sister! 

If you’re trying to decide on the perfect location for maternity photos in Philadelphia, definitely consider a Longwood Gardens maternity session. There’s so many wonderful spots for portraits, all in one dreamy location! Longwood Gardens has it all – beautiful architecture, indoor and outdoor gardens, and even fun fountains. I’m a huge fan of finding one spot that will provide us with a variety of locations to explore. It makes your final gallery even more beautiful, and helps keep everyone interested – especially those little ones! 

Thank you to the beautiful T family for trusting me to capture this incredibly special time in their lives! Maeve’s newborn session will be making an appearance on the blog soon! And I will share the beautiful gallery wall we created of images from both the Longwood Gardens maternity session and their Glen Mills in home newborn session.
