Maternity photography is growing more popular day by day. It has opened a new area for professional photographers to explore. Like all subjects, pregnant women also like to look beautiful in the photos though it is challenging to photograph them during that time. My maternity photo sessions are designed to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Many people like props but remember you don’t want to take the focus of your image. Using word props for announcing the baby’s name or gender will make cute maternity photograph, you can spell the full name or give everyone a hint just by using the first word of the name. Parents wearing t-shirts with “boy or girl?” words imprinted on them will make everyone keep guessing about the baby. Tiny shoes are undoubtedly everyone’s favourite at the moment. The creative use of light and shadow can make a great photograph, using pink or blue backgrounds if you know you’re having a boy or girl is also very effective, or if you like you could use more than two backgrounds.
Unisex Memory Boxes are a great idea for keeping those special memories and treasures for a pregnant or new Mum’s, so you can store all baby’s precious memories over the first few years. You never get those years back so you can keep and record your entire baby’s events along with special photographs and first scan photo. You can capture you child’s first year with photographs at certain times, for example up to 3 months old, 9 months and 1 year old. Packages are available for this which we call our Baby steps studio session programme. We also like to celebrate at the end of the first year with your child’s first birthday cake smash. The cake smash is usually done around the child’s first birthday, and the photos are often used on the first birthday party invitations or just to mark the happy event. It’s often the first time the child has eaten much cake, and the first time they’ve been allowed to do whatever they want with it, whether it’s planting there face into it, putting icing in their hair, or knocking the whole thing over then crawling through it, the most important part as a family is for you to have fun!
