BUMPS BABY BEYOND - NEWBORN AND MATERNITY PHOTOGRPAHER LEICESTER
Not everyone wants to be photographed when pregnant, it’s a very vulnerable time for some, your body is changing, your hormones are all over the place and you’re more than likely tired…very tired! BUT this is such a special time in your life, a milestone and one to be remembered. If not for you, then for your baby in years to come. I always get excited when I get new props, and I love the way the split maternity gowns fall over ladies bumps. Personally I think there’s a radiance that seems to shine on a pregnant lady, no matter how far gone they are there’s just this health glow about them and Tanya definitely had this!
Tanya emailed me about what the session entails, what sort of items she should wear and asking if we could capture some images including her partner and daughter. After us discussing different options Tanya decided she wanted to take the more concealed approach, and this is something I welcome, as I said everyone feels differently in their pregnancy! We spokes some more and I shared some images with her, once she felt more confident with me she changed her views on what sort of images she wanted. Of course I welcomed this and I was over the moon when I received an email saying she would like to try some images wearing my new lace dress and she loved the idea of adding some colour. I loved this not due to the fact of what she now wanted to wear but the fact she felt comfortable enough to do so; I believe strongly in gaining a working relationship with my clients and respect ALL of their wishes!
Tanya had seen an images like this on Pintrest (always a good source of ideas!) and as it was one of the first ones she sent me we gave it our best shot and I’m extremely happy with the outcome. The little outfit Tanya is holding has huge sentimental value for their family, it was actually the outfit her late granddad brought for her first daughter and is something she can’t wait to put the new addition in. I hope this image is a constant reminder that her granddad is with them at all times!
Ahhhh proud mummy and daddy – I cannot wait to see this family again when their new addition Lilly arrives :)
~ Had a great photo shoot, made my family feel welcome and myself feel at ease considering I had photos done that I wouldn't normally but felt so calm and comfortable. Very patient with my little girl also and adjusted photos to put her in them for me as she wasn't willing. Great experience cant wait for my photos and for my next shoot x ~
Both maternity gowns made by Little Dee-Lights and can't recommend them highly enough!
