Motherhood is both a physical and mental journey. The ability for a woman to create a life may never be captured in it’s full essence — the joy, the pain, the fatigue, the excitement, the worry, the relief.
One may be hard-pressed to find anyone outside of the mother who can better understand the pregnancy, but what better way to try to show this than through a maternity shoot?
As photographers, it is important to honor the mother’s vision, make the mother comfortable, and provide quality photos as a result of a successful maternity shoot.
The journey to motherhood is uniquely different to each woman. Even each pregnancy a mother has can be vastly diverse. Capturing the moments during your journey should be treated no differently.
Here is why a maternity photoshoot is the perfect way to capture your journey to motherhood:
1. It’s About You
The photo shoot is about you. As photographers, the greatest part of our job is getting to focus on you. You get to decide what makes you feel most beautiful and most comfortable. The best photos come from a mother who is comfortable and having fun on set.
2. You Get To Be The Creative
Only you can show us what you’d like. You have the creative freedom to express yourself in your photos. You can find inspiration on the internet or in magazines that coincide with your vision for the maternity shoot.
As photographers, we help to guide you and make suggestions based off the ideas you provide us. Whether you prefer candid poses or strategically posed photos, we will capture the “wow” factor in any setting.
3. You Can Have Fun
A maternity photo shoot can focus solely on the mother or involve the partner, siblings and other family members. The photographs can be filled with laughter and wide smiles brimming with love and admiration. One of the many factors that go into capturing the “perfect” picture is the enjoyment of the moment.
4. You Can Shoot On Location
A maternity photo shoot does not have to be confined to a studio. Location is also essential to a comfortable and successful shoot. Whether you prefer a flower garden or a solitary spot on the beach, you have the opportunity to show off your baby bump in a place that you choose!
5. For The Memories
A maternity photo shoot is a way you can hold onto the memories before the birth of your child. Pregnancy is a special time for mothers. Photographs capture moments that trigger emotions, memories and feelings forever.
