A Pregnancy Photoshoot Gives Precious Lifelong Memories
A pregnancy photoshoot should form part of every family photo album. After all, in the modern world, most women are only pregnant once or twice in their lifetime. Of course, you should take maternity photos yourself, but every pregnancy deserves a professional maternity shoot.
You will look back on your beautiful baby bump photos for the rest of your life and they will give you endless pleasure as you share your photos with your growing child. Maternity photoshoot pictures are very special, but they don’t need to cost the earth.
Maternity Photo Shoot
I have been providing maternity photoshoots at women’s homes for many years. That way there is no travel involved, something that can be a huge bonus if morning or travel sickness is an issue. I believe that cute maternity photoshoot ideas tend to work better at home than in a sterile, and sometimes cold studio environment.
Being comfortable results in much better maternity photoshoot pictures. Some women choose to be photographed on a number of occasions as their pregnancy develops and their baby bump grows. That way they build a collection of maternity photoshoot pictures that track the baby’s growth in the womb.
Maternity Photo Ideas
Let’s deal with the elephant in the room. Many women avoid maternity photos because they feel fat, and sometimes unattractive. Any decent maternity photographer understands this and can ensure that pregnancy photoshoot poses are flattering and beautiful.
I take a huge amount of inspiration from Mary Ann Halpin’s beautiful book of maternity photoshoot pictures, “Pregnant Goddesshood.” Another source of maternity shoot inspiration is Australian photographer Anne Geddes who produces both pregnancy and baby photographs that are stunningly beautiful.
Geddes often uses symbolism in her work, adding other beautiful elements of nature, buds, seeds, tiny birds eggs, cocoons, bulbs, and fruits to illustrate the wondrous cycle of life that is pregnancy.

Get Your Children And Partner Involved In Your Maternity Shoot
Any pregnancy is an exciting time for the whole family. If you have younger children it is always a good idea to get them involved in your photoshoot. This is another reason why it’s a good idea to do your maternity photo shoot in your home.
Younger children are easily bored in a photo studio. If the shoot is in your home they can be amusing themselves until they are needed.
It’s probably fair to say that dads are often forgotten when it comes to a pregnancy photoshoot session so it’s always a good idea to get them involved, even if it’s only for an image or two. If dad is confident and enjoys being photographed, a couples maternity shoot can result in some truly memorable photos.
That said, your maternity photoshoot will always be about you and I will try to ensure that your photos reflect your personality. Some mums-to-be are full of funny pregnancy photoshoot ideas, others want picture-perfect maternity photoshoot dresses and gowns. It is totally your decision, and we can work together to ensure that your pictures are exactly what you want.
