20 Swoon Worthy Photographs for the Military Family

I want to start out by saying that I am not a military wife, but I honor the men + women who fight for our freedom. I also admire the women who stay home alone for months at a time while their husbands are on deployment, and even more so when they do this while starting a family. As a photographer myself, I am constantly on Pinterest looking for new + original photographs, + recently I stumbled upon a military maternity photo session that I just fell in love with.

I never had a reason to search for military photographs because 1. I am not a military wife + 2. I’ve never had the pleasure of taking photos for a military family. I hope one day I will, but for now, I thought I’d share all the beautiful photographs that I found. Whether you’re looking to get military themed pictures taken, a photographer looking for inspiration, or just admirers like me, these pregnancy announcement, maternity, + newborn photographs are too heartwarming not to see!

The Announcement

My all time favorite photo sessions are pregnancy announcements. I love getting to share the excitement with the happy parents-to-be, and I love how the photos are used to break the news. No one knows about the photos except the couple, the photographer, and maybe a few friends + family. It’s just such an exciting time for both the family + the photographer. Check out these adorable military announcements 🙂


Maternity is a close second on my list of favorites. The big bellies, the excitement for the baby’s arrival, the love that the mom + dad-to-be have for each other. I never leave a maternity session not feeling the love + baby dust.


And last, but not least, sweet little newborns. People go crazy over all the cute newborns wrapped in cheese cloth, lace, little crocheted outfits, but how about a fresh baby in uniform?

Thanks for looking, but more importantly, thank the photographers for their beautiful work, and the men + women in uniform who fight for our country everyday.
