I have a photo of my mother when she was about 8 months pregnant with me. I love this photo. It’s so amazing to look at it and think, that’s where I started out. I have a close girlfriend who was recently pregnant and was hesitate about taking any belly photos as she is a shy and modest person. I told her of this photo I have of my mother and how much it means to me. She saw the significance and gave in to me taking some shots at her baby shower. I think her daughter will be glad I was persistent.
It is just my personal opinion, but I believe many would agree with me that pregnancy is an amazing thing and a huge milestone in a couple’s life.
I have done some pregnancy shoots in studio but my preference is to do them in a more natural environment – somewhere that you like to spend your time and where you would feel most comfortable (e.g. at home, in the garden, at the yoga studio, swimming, at the beach, in the park, at a museum).
