I wasn't sure where to post this, so I hope this forum is okay! I am going to be taking some photos of a friend who is pregnant on Saturday, and wanted to see if anyone has any tips for a successful session with her. I have never done a maternity session, or really any portrait session for that matter. Photography is just a really serious hobby for me, and since I have a nice camera, she asked if I would do it.
If you have any tips for me, either as a photographer, or as someone who has had maternity portraits taken, please let me know!
I love having mom use both hands, thumbs together and fingers together, to make a heart on the belly. Holding baby socks or baby blocks is also cute.
I'd suggest side poses, front poses, on the ground laying flat with feet up, at her house, etc.
After 4 m/c, our is here!
She's got a whole bunch of maternity photos on her website.
Just click "Maternity & Infants" along the top.
Lovin' my sweetheart, pregnant with #1 (EDD Feb.2013)
