Maternity Photo Shoot Indoors and Outdoors
My friend in her advanced stage of pregnancy asked me to do a photo shoot of her. This was out of the blue for me! As a travel photographer, always out in the open, the idea of shooting indoors with limited light unnerved me. The idea was to include her elder daughter in the maternity photo shoot poses. Her daughter is a bubbly little thing aged around 2½ years. Her due date was approaching fast and before the new one popped out she wanted these final stages of her with child (children) well framed. Since we knew each other well I took up the task, hoping she would forgive me if the results were disastrous.
Maternity Photo Shoot Indoors
I thoroughly enjoyed the maternity photo shoot, framing the poses, compiling the pictures and finally writing this blogpost. I have added pregnancy quotes and saying with the pictures. These should remind some sweet moments to those of you who have experienced this phase. This definitely is a phase worthy of capturing forever through a photograph!
The ‘mom to be’ had clear cut out ideas how the composition should turn out, that made my job very easy. Choosing maternity photo shoot dresses can be tricky. The pictures had to reflect elegance hiding all wobbly bits, and she chose some ideal matching photo shoot dresses. Both mom and daughter had white and black combination of dresses.
A crisp white-grey curtain made the backdrop. With faint light passing through, the forms got definite shape. The little one was more than willing to give the photo shoot poses. A good level of acquaintance and friendliness with kids is helpful in maternity photo shoot poses.
Maternity Photo Shoot Outdoors
A couple of pictures were taken outdoors too. Quick change of dress and with maternity photoshoot props the scene got better. This was easier with good amount of sunlight. We just had to get the little one in her best moods and surprisingly this was the easiest. The photo shoot got over in few minutes. It was like a story telling event, the characters in the story happily depicting theirs. The little one was super excited, loved her for that!
Tell me which of these you liked the best?
