I love photographing pregnant bellies! I love being a maternity photographer and I love being a baby photographer! I’ve recently added a number of new backgrounds, fabrics, gowns, and wraps for maternity portraits. Thankfully, I’ve had a number of great new models lately that are willing to try out my new items!
Working with little ones adds a new dimension to photographing a maternity session. Thankfully, I love babies and toddlers. I do speak “toddler” and I’m quite proud of it. LOL This little sweetie was a true 18-month old and I think we’re new buddies. I think she’s really excited about the baby inside of mommy.
I love using lighting in creative ways to shape the beautiful pregnant belly. I’m always trying new techniques and learning from the experts in the photography industry. Doesn’t it look gorgeous?
Maternity photos are best photographed between 7 and 8 months. Beyond that, water-weight, puffy face/arms/legs/feet increasingly become an issue. At this point, you will still have energy, you will be able to move around (as best as one is able with a basketball-sized belly!) and you will be less uncomfortable.
Who do you know that is expecting? I’d be happy to capture beautiful, creative maternity portraits. I’m happy to photograph the expectant mom as she is comfortable, wearing as much or as little as she wants.
