This was officially my first maternity shoot and I bloody loved it! For the past 5 years I’ve mainly shot small moving human beings who therefore dictate the shoot itself because I literally follow them around. So I was nervous about shooting my first pregnant couple as I knew a lot more direction had to come from me. However, I had nothing to be worried about as they were a lovely couple and Laura had the most gorgeous bump. They were up for anything, even when perhaps for them sometimes it felt a little staged. I am so pleased with the results and now have the confidence to start seeking more maternity shoots.
So if you are pregnant or know anyone who is who would like to capture this (peaceful!) time before the little ones arrive, as life will never be the same again, then please do get in touch :-)
Hindsight is a wonderful thing but I wish I had got some professional shots of me and my husband before Leo & Sebastian came along. Being pregnant is such a privilege and such a short period in your life (although it doesn’t always feel like it at the time!).
