Lisbon Maternity Shoot


After we decided on Lisbon for our anniversary/babymoon, I knew I wanted to take some time on our trip for a maternity shoot. After all, how often do you find yourself in one of the most beautiful cities in the world while expecting your first baby?

But, that meant finding a potentially non-English speaking photographer in a foreign locale (not always an easy task). Thankfully, with the help of Instagram and a series of hashtag searches (#lisbonphotography, #lisbonphotographer, #lisbonwedding, #lifestyleshoot, etc. etc.), I fortuitously came upon Atmosphere Fotografia – and am so very pleased I did. Husband and wife team, Sandra and Miguel, are absolutely lovely and their work – undeniably romantic, documentary and refined.

To create my maternity look, I wore a white lace camisole dress that has been sitting in my closet for years. The dress has always been a little too boxy, requiring a belt or other waist embellishment for shape, but with baby on the way, the bump seemed to perfectly fill this romantic white frock. To create a breezy European vibe, I opted for more casual shoes and wore white square toe mules with wood heels. Finally, for accessories, I wanted to introduce a little personality, sparkle and color and wore rose gold jhumka¬†earrings (detachable to create two looks) and cuffs from Minza Khan’s new jewelry line, which like her bags, fuse traditional South Asian craftsmanship and design with western influences.
