3 Steps to Choosing the Perfect Maternity Shoot Location
Location scouting for your maternity shoot can be incredibly overwhelming since already have so much going on with being pregnant and all! In fact, the thought of it may even put you off the whole maternity shoot idea to begin with. But, with some direction from your maternity photography photographer, choosing the perfect preggy belly photo setting will be a lot easier than you think.
Discovering the Secret Beauty of Birth Photography
If you’re new to the idea, the secret beauty of birth photography may be lost on you. But never fear, it’s about to become abundantly clear! Many couples toy with the idea of birth photography and whether it’s worth hiring a professional birth photographer. But, if you’re interested in having the most beautiful moments of your life documented as a lifelong keepsake, a birth photographer is an absolute must.
Each birth photography story is unique
No two couples are the same, no two mothers are the same, and no two birth experiences are the same. So when we speak about the secret beauty of birth photography, the biggest secret of all is that the experience captured is completely unique to you – it’s essentially the manifestation of your secret birth story! There’s no generic product at the end of it all, because your real, raw birth experience is captured and immortalised in a very physical way that enables you to go back and re-live those precious moments.
Birth Plan…or not to Plan
When you wait the long 9 months for baby to arrive, many things go through your head and you are bombarded with information – from the lady next door to the granny in the supermarket who just remembered her very difficult birth while staring uncomfortably at your belly.
Then there is the doctor who wants to test the new wonder drug on your baby and you are the one staring into space thinking: How am I going to get through this birth?” Everyone has an opinion on having a birth plan – some moms-to-be have a few birth plans… just in case one of the plans does not work – and an idea of being in control. Other moms have no plan just going with the flow and see what happens. I don’t think you can be right or wrong on this concept of having a birth plan, or none whatsoever.
Why are you not doing your own birth photography?
Imagine your wedding day… you are all dressed up and ready to meet the man of your dreams, but in the back of your mind you keep thinking: Am I going to remember all the details 20, 30 or even 50 years from now? That nagging thought trying to make a point to remember every moment as it unfolds in front of you.
There is an option available for you. It’s called a selfie, with your cell phone that will be outdated six months from now. Pixels that won’t make sense, and blurry because you are still busy trying to be in the moment as well as capture the moment. Don’t you rather want a professional photographer there doing the photos for you so you can enjoy your special day?
