Want to know what I love most of all when it comes to photographing your glorious baby bumps?
Light would be the top of my list. In my studio sessions, because the room was custom built for my photography I am a bit spoiled with my light – it’s really beautiful and most people comment on it when they walk in the room (which always makes my heart burst, as it’s exactly what I planned!)
Next might not be what you’d expect – but a subject who trusts me and just lets go during her session. So much of my output comes down to the subject and how relaxed they are: considering none of my clients are professional models, it comes down to me to make sure they can feel that (and I think I am pretty ok at that part!)
A black and white portrait is up there with one of my favourite things too. No distractions in colour: just light and shade and everything in-between…..*sigh*
A supportive partner – lots of clients bring along a (usually reluctant!) partner to their maternity sessions. It’s actually great because I love awkward (I know, weird) but it just brings humour to a session and keeps things real. And I like real.
(There are 8 images here. To be honest I have a dozen or so more favourites so I’m not sure what I was thinking by making this a “top 5” post!)
