From a photographer’s perspective, maternity and newborn photo session experiences are very different. But, which one do we enjoy more? We enjoy both equally. But which one is more challenging? That’s a great question. Maternity sessions are more controlled and well planned in advance. Newborn sessions – the exact opposite; while we do plan and come up with creative ideas a day or two before the session, they control their entire session. We just go with the flow :-).
It is easier for us to discuss maternity session details prior to the session. Jana calls the mom-to-be prior to their sessions to chalk out a plan. We get a variety of maternity clients – from moms-to-be who do not even want to expose their belly to moms-to-be who want to celebrate their pregnancy with artistic nude shots. As long as it is not cheesy, we are more than happy to get creative any which way. That is why it is more important for Jana to have that call with moms-to-be, who are very excited about their photo session. Planning and setting expectations is everything!
This beautiful couple came to us to capture their pregnancy pictures. Mom-to-be was very clear; no artistic nudes – just fun, stylish shots that would portray who she is. Jana came up with the idea of combining an outdoor and indoor session. We love the Fall season and incorporated beautiful rustic walls outside the studio. End result? Very dreamy, romantic, colorful pictures that portrayed their relationship! Dad-to-be is an American hockey player playing for the Winnipeg Jets.
Our process simple. Results remarkable.
