One of my favourite things about maternity/pregnancy photoshoots, is that there are so many ways you can photograph it to make a pregnant woman feel beautiful. Being pregnant is generally one of the most exciting times in a couples lives. The long wait to meet your brand new baby. Wondering whether you will have a boy or girl. What will they look like? How will their personality be?
Some women (and I say women, because generally they are the instigators of getting professional photos taken!) like traditional maternity photos. Not everyone has professional family photos taken regularly. Maybe the last time they had them was at their wedding, so this is a great time to get them updated. Some families bring along their parents and grandparents to be included in the photos Maybe it is their first grandchild, or their last. It’s a lovely excuse to get dressed up too!
Some women want something more intimate. Something that focus’ on their body as it changes shape. (And some like a mix of both)
Alicia recently came in for the more intimate approach to maternity photos. Using light in different ways results in different types of photos. You can be really creative, and really show off that pregnancy bump!
Here are a few of my favourites 🙂
