The Importance of Pregnancy Shoots
Are you planning of having some maternity shoots soon? Here you will find some tips for your next maternity session. As a professional maternity photographer, these tips will be very helpful for your maternity photography session. The most important thing you should know about your maternity session is that the perfect time for it is around 28 to 36 weeks of pregnancy, but it all depends on the baby bump. One thing I always tell my clients is to feel comfortable and love their bodies during pregnancy photography. When you do both of these things, we can have a great artistic maternity photo shoot. Another thing I suggest to them is to trust me. You should believe what your maternity photographer thinks and tells you to do as long as you are comfortable.
It’s important to choose the best maternity or pregnancy photographer, that you believe that her/his work and style will match with your maternity style.
Tips For A Maternity Photoshoot- Pregnancy Photography
Location is another thing that has a big importance on maternity photography. It doesn’t matter if you choose nature or a studio. Both of them are unique and in both of them, I can create fine-art maternity portraits. In the studio, I can take some magical black & white silhouettes or nude maternity photos. In nature, we can choose the sea, a field, etc. But all of these places offer me the opportunity to capture artistic maternity photography. If the whole family is in the picture then some documentary family portraits are a must. Maternity and newborn photography
is something I enjoy a lot.
Wardrobe for your Maternity Photography Session
During these 9 months of course it’s a bit hard to find the perfect clothes for a regular day, imagine for a maternity photoshoot. It’s better to wear something that will show your baby bump. You can either wear a bodycon outfit or something flowy. I offer both of these styles in my studio. Except for the clothes that you choose to wear, in my studio, you will find a variety of outfits for the photoshoot from bodycon dresses that compliments your body to flowy dresses. They all are made of high-quality fabrics like satin, tulle, microfibre, etc. so the mothers can feel comfortable. I also recommend to my clients some white blouses and jeans to match with their partner. About the hairstyle and makeup for a maternity photo shoot, I always suggest a simple look.
Obviously, there are times when we have to create something different with a lot of colors and flowers, balloons, etc. to match the theme of the photoshoot.
Poses for Pregnancy Photography
Let’s not forget about the poses. I always try to capture timeless photos. Knowing that the photos I take will be the most beautiful memories you will have, inspires me to take unique photos. Maternity silhouettes are so special and unique. Also, nude photography is a must for every woman or girl who feels comfortable taking this kind of photography. It’s artistic nude photography. What about some maternity portraits? Of course! Pregnancy portraits shouldn’t miss on your maternity photoshoot.
And while we finish this shoot, I will be thinking about our next session, when the baby is born. What do you think about newborn photography? Some beautiful newborn portraits that everybody would love.
