Pregnancy photography – Celebrate & capture this special time in your life

Gold Coast Pregnancy photographerSo, you’re pregnant! Congratulations!
Being pregnant is one of life’s most exciting, wonderful experiences. The thought of creating and carrying another human being inside your belly is unbelievable, miraculous even. And although being pregnant for nine months isn’t something that most women will describe as ‘a walk in the park’, the reward is simply moving, humbling, one may even say, magical. The first time I found out I was pregnant was one of my most memorable experiences. From the second I found out I was pregnant, I immediately visualised a precious baby that I could soon call my own – an angel who I will joyfully teach how to become a beautiful little girl, or a strong boy and with whom I will share most of my life’s greatest moments.

No doubt you feel just as passionate about your current pregnancy. But like everything in life, it doesn’t last forever and in just a few months from now, you’ll have given birth and your life will never be the same again! But what if you had something to always remind you of this remarkable time of your life? Something that will remind you that you carried your child effortlessly for nine months? Something that you can show your child when you’re a little older?

As one of the most defining, trying and amazing times of your life, you simply can’t afford to just let this moment pass you by. Celebrate your most important blessing with a professional Gold Coast Pregnancy photography session.

What is pregnancy photography?

Pregnancy photography is the art of partaking in a professional photography shoot while you’re pregnant and personally, I recommend that you do this between 32 and 34 weeks while your belly is at its largest, most beautiful form. Also, this is generally the stage of your pregnancy that you’ll feel most comfortable as your morning sickness will have well and truly passed. As a professional Gold Coast photographer that specialises in newborn and maternity photography, nothing is more important to me than making sure you feel comfortable and gorgeous during your photo shoot.

To ensure that you get the best photos, I recommend that you visit a spa and a salon the morning of, or the day before your photography session. Go and pamper yourself with a gorgeous facial and have your hair styled so you’ll feel beautiful, confident, relaxed, and fab. Based on experience, the most captivating photos are created when a pregnant women feels good about themselves.

I encourage you to wear form-fitting tops that will accentuate your growing belly. If you’d prefer to be photographed with your bare belly then that’s fantastic as it produces amazing pregnancy photographs every time. Your other options are long flowing dresses in pastels and off whites depending on your skin tone. However, these are just some of my suggestions but feel free to come to your professional photo shoot wearing your favourite outfit that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable.

Pregnancy Photography: Outdoors or indoors?

When signing up for a  photography session, one of the decisions that you need to make is to choose whether you’re going have your Pregnancy photography session indoors or outdoors. Indoor photo shoots can be done in a studio, in your baby’s nursery, or at the comfort of your own home. Personally, I love to use the outdoors as the backdrop for my Pregnancy photography, the colours are more vibrant and the images come back more attractive. But then again, it will all depend on your preference and where you are most comfortable. Also, I would recommend that you take some photos with your partner. After all, there is no other better person to share this momentous event than the father of your child. Aside from traditional poses where the would-be daddy touches or kisses the belly, ask your photographer to show you poses that will make your maternity photos more unique.

What to expect during your pregnancy photography session

Should you decide to hire Little Orange Photography for your Pregnancy photography, you can expect the session to last for about 1.5 hours. However, as each pregnancy is unique, the session could take longer depending on how you feel. Before the actual photo shoot, we will have initial consultation where we’ll discuss your preferences including themes. I highly recommend that you bring not just your spouse but also your children.

As a professional photography on the Gold Coast, it’s my main goal to help you capture life’s precious moments. With my skills and my undying passion, I can guarantee choosing Little Orange Photography for your Gold Coast Maternity Photography is simply a smart choice. Let me make this joyous occasion something you won’t forget for the rest of your life.
