Being pregnant is a wonderful thing that should not be taken for granted. So surely, showing off your body as your baby grows is something that every pregnant woman should be proud to do. However, this is not the case for many women; they become self-conscious of their stretch marks and their expanding waste line. Although many women feel this way, I have seen many embrace their newfound voluptuous bodies and by having pregnancy photos taken, they actually feel more empowered.
While pregnancy photos have in the past been used to document the bond of the mother and the baby whilst in the womb, they are now offering so much more to mothers-to-be across the globe. I, like everyone else, am addicted to Instagram, and as a photographer I find it a fantastic platform to showcase the art that I love so much. Recently, I found an article that showcased just how universal the platform is. It featured 10 powerful images of mothers-to-be embracing their bellies and learning to be comfortable within their own skin through the empowerment they felt from their pregnancy photos. The photos alone were so moving that they inspired me to look at this topic in more detail. So in this article I’ll explain how you can master your pregnancy photoshoot to hopefully achieve a similar outcome.
Seeing Yourself in a Different Light
Yes, your body is going through changes, but they are beautiful changes. The body of a pregnant woman is beautiful and should be celebrated. No two pregnant women’s bodies look the same, and this is what makes pregnancy an amazing thing. Every bump is different in size and shape and every woman looks different yet radiant, even though they may not feel like they are.
A pregnancy photo-shoot should be exciting and make you feel alive. You no longer have to worry about the terrible limited offerings from maternity clothing, that is a thing of the past. Now you can buy gorgeous maternity clothing that will make you feel as sexy as your slimmer self; being pregnant doesn’t have to mean feeling unattractive at all.
Get empowered with pregnancy photos
A radiant image of the mother-to-be is what every pregnant woman wants from her photoshoot. However, not every mother is lucky enough to have a wonderful, stress-free and easy pregnancy. Regardless, most want to remember this time of their lives and having pregnancy photos taken is a great way in which to do this.
Not all women are able to go through pregnancy without bloated ankles, backaches and the other typical symptoms that pregnancy brings with it. So for some, the idea of having their photo taken is the last thing on their mind, especially when they are not feeling at their best. This is why at Little Orange Photography, I will do everything I can to make your photoshoot as comfortable and stress-free as possible, and as a mother of two I have been there and know exactly how you feel.
I can assure you that when it comes to your pregnancy photoshoot, all you need to do is turn up, and I will do the rest. Your photoshoot should be as stress-free and relaxing as possible. This will leave you with plenty of time to worry about the important things, like how you will pose and who will do your hair and makeup.
It is time to not only look beautiful, but also feel beautiful again.
Creating a life is a gift, and if you are lucky enough to become pregnant, then you should celebrate the miracle that is growing inside your belly. Every pregnant woman should feel empowered, especially when it comes to her beautiful body shape, and the right pregnancy photoshoot can help a woman achieve this feeling.
