Spokane Studio Maternity Session - The Cedeno's + One

This was the sweetest maternity session set in a gorgeous white studio in Spokane! Lex & I randomly followed each other on Instagram a couple of years ago. Eventually we became Insta besties and I started taking photos for Lex’s Pilates Studio (Precision Pilates). Quick side note – If you love pilates or are interested in trying it out, you HAVE to go to Precision Pilates. Lex & Amber (her mom), own Precision Pilates together. They are so passionate about Pilates and have been taught by a 2nd generation teacher who was taught by Joseph Pilates himself. They’re the real deal and take it very seriously!

When Lex got pregnant, I knew we’d have to document this special time and so we started to plan the shoot. Because maternity photos have to be shot in a certain timeframe (29-34 weeks along!), we knew we’d be shooting during the wintertime. As a result of this, we decided to rent out a studio. This studio is the cutest space on the South Hill and made for the PERFECT backdrop!

Details of the studio session

Lex opted for three different looks. The first, a simple open white blouse and jeans. The second was so much fun – no top, jeans, and then flowers over her boobs to add a creative touch. Those photos ended up being my favorite – it reminded me of Mother Earth. The last look was a tight black bodysuit. I love the look of a tight black bodysuit/dress because it hugs the body perfectly and shows it off while still being super flattering. 

Enjoy! Xoxo, Hannah

Overall, I highly recommend renting a Studio space for your maternity session – especially if it’s the middle of winter and you’re worried about it being cold & ugly outside!

If you’re pregnant, you need maternity photos. There is one time (with each kid) where the miracle of life bears witness to the world in a woman’s body. Everyone has their own story. And I love documenting people’s stories.
