The expectation of a new life represents a special and unforgettable moment in the personal history of every woman. In the nine months of pregnancy you will witness a real transformation of the body and soul: the shapes are rounded and the emotions become more alive and intense to allow you to fully savor the miracle of a new life.
Why you should do a pregnancy photo shoot
Pampering yourself with a photo shoot during pregnancy is the best way to enhance this unique and unrepeatable moment, to relive it in your memories even after a long time and, why not, to share it with a son or daughter who have grown up.
There are no fixed rules for making perfect maternity photos, but it can be useful to follow some tricks to get the most out of this experience.
The pregnancy photo book: when and how to make it
Pregnancy generates a new life, but in those magical weeks of expectation the future mother is also born to new life, revealing herself in the maximum expression of her femininity. In order to enhance this moment, the best period to take artistic photos during pregnancy is the one that goes from the twenty-eighth to the thirty-fourth week: in this period of time the belly will be clearly visible but the future mother will not be too tired yet and can dedicate herself without problems with making the pregnancy photo album.
The choice of location for maternity photos is strictly personal and to be agreed with the professional who will take care of the service. In my case, as a professional photographer in the Cinque Terre, I propose a shooting session in the studio to be eventually integrated with outdoor shots along the splendid Ligurian coast or on the beaches near the studio.
Even for the clothes to wear, the rules are not rigid. To get beautiful pregnancy photos, the ideal is to choose soft garments that enhance the roundness of the belly without impeding the fluidity of movements.
And what about the future dad? Also in this case the choice is subjective: some women prefer to have a pregnancy photo book dedicated exclusively to the transformation of their body, others also want couple shots or maternity photos that include older brothers and sisters. Whatever your idea of a pregnancy photo shoot, a professional photographer will be able to meet your every need.
… and after the pregnancy shoot
What happens after finishing the shooting for your maternity photo shoot? Generally, after a few weeks from the shoot you will be able to see with your own eyes the result of the photo session and freely choose the artistic pregnancy photos that you like best. You can choose between having fine art prints, wall enlargements, albums or photo boxes to keep your most precious memories.
Furthermore, if you wish, you can complete the pregnancy photo book with the new “Motherhood” portrait session dedicated to mothers and babies aged 6 to 12 months.
