I had lovely Isabel in the studio a couple of weeks ago and portrait her at 29 weeks of pregnancy. As most of you probably already know, maternity sessions are amongst my favorite sessions, so I thought I write a few lines about my way of working when I portrait a pregnant lady.
My idea of fine art photography in general is photographing without, or little, props. Just feelings. The portrait is about the person in it and I wish to focus on their personality and feelings when looking through the lens.
There are many different moments in pregnancy, quiet ones, fun ones and many more. Every one of those moments is beautiful and I’d like to capture this during my maternity sessions.
Light and shadow in a maternity photography session is ever so important to create the right mood. My images always vary from informal to fun portraits and dramatic poses enhanced by creative lighting techniques.
I’d always like to meet with you before the session so we can talk about your expectations, see many examples of my past maternity sessions and discuss outfits, hairstyle, make-up and studio set-up. This way we are both well prepared and you will get the most out of your maternity session.
It’s so beautiful to create memories for a lifetime starting from when you are expecting your first baby. Once the baby is born I recommend to return for a newborn photo session within the first 4 weeks of your newborn baby’s life to capture the most emotional, incredible and tender newborn baby portraits.
Please give me a call or email me for any further information about maternity sessions or any other photo sessions I offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
I wish you all a very happy Christmas and great start in the New Year! But most important health and happiness.
