Woman are said to be at their most radiant when they are pregnant. It truly is a special time as the miracle of life develops within. I remember being acutely aware when Saharah was born that she was one moment safe and secure inside her mother and the next, exposed to the world. It is a relatively short time that mothers to be have to nurture their yet unborn child and is unsurprisingly becoming a popular time to document. To ensure a beautiful maternity shoot it is always a good idea to discuss the shoot with your photographer beforehand so that everyone has a good idea going forward. Pinterest is a great way to communicate ideas between the different parties. Have a change of wardrobe available to mix the shoot up with. Remember it’s about quality, not quantity. Choose a location that you feel represents you and one that you feel you’ll be comfortable with. Have an end game. Visualise what you want to do with the images that are being created. Are you going to have them framed or made into an album or presented to family members. Have a few props prepared. Something personal is always nice to have. Remember it doesn’t need to be frumpy. You’re a beautifull woman preparing your body to bring a new life into this world. Stay sexy and above all keep it relaxed.
