5 ADORABLE MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS
Maternity. Strive to capture this amazing moment in your life. Be it you are a single mom or you
have a hubby, you should always have photos of your maternity period.
Don't just always take the typical boring maternity images that every mother who’s every had
her belly photographed has in one of her many baby albums. Move right into that first session
ready to stand by commitment to creativity! Don't be just the norm, be outstanding.
Let me share with you some amazing Maternity Photographer NJ tips to help you capture that
moment in a splendid manner.
1. Do Something Different
Don’t just shoot what’s always been shot. This is a good general rule of photography.
Try to be consistently unique. Let me explain, you’ve got to approach each shoot as it’s own. Be
very committed as a photographer to tailoring each shoot for the subject you are taking photos
Like I said before, this is a good general rule that applies particularly to maternity photography.
Even though a large number of mothers have given birth to babies for many years(i.e since the
time of adam and eve), a mother-to-be needs to feel like her pregnancy is amazing, special and
adorable, that the things she’s experiencing are unique only to her. Because they are.Strive to
diffe and unique always.
2. Don’t Forget the rest of the family, or the pets
Always remember that often a baby is coming into an established family unit where the family
has a unique kind of living.
If the siblings are available, make sure to include them in at least a few frames.
I have to mention the pets, because many people have amazing pets that they do really love.
When the family gets kids, you can trust that the pets will be right there in at least a handful of
the maternity photos.They are as much a part of the family as the next guy.
3. Make Her Feel Beautiful and Appreciated
Women don’t generally feel very sexywhen they’re pregnant.
Understandably so, and trust me I connect with this feeling as much as the next lady.
But just because an expectant mother doesn’t feel sexy, that doesn’t mean she’s not totally
knock out. Bring that out in her. Pull that beauty out of her. A good way to do this is by talking as
you shoot. It’s perfectly appropriate to say things like: “That’s beautiful!” “Yes, perfect!” “Oh
that’s just LOVELY.” Whatever works!
If you’re a male photographer you’ll need to be careful about what you say in this crazy world of
sexual harassment, but you’re even more capable of pulling the beauty out of her than a female
It’s one thing when your girlfriend tells you you’re beautiful, but when your girlfriend’s brother
tells you that you’re looking good, you actually believe it. Obviously be careful and be genuine.
The success of this tip will depend on your personality, but you can help her help herself. If she
feels pretty she’ll look a whole heck of a lot better. It’s that simple.
4. Keep it natural
When she looks down at her belly, make sure her head isn’t completely tilted at a weird
angle…it can look unnatural and create a double chin. Have her fixate on a point slightly away
from her bump. Don’t forget eye contact and with asmile…everyone loves a classic shot like
that. Vary expressions from laughter to more intense. I love having the new dad stand off to
the side or behind me (just like for a child session) and make silly jokes or dance. Good
practice for what’s to come!
5. Bring Out the Relationship:
Most likely, new babies are coming into a loving home.
Always try to include photographs that highlight the amazing relationship between mom and
dad, because bringing a child into the world with someone is arguably love in it’s best form.
