Personally, I believe that the months waiting for your beloved child to be born are some of the most precious moments of your life. You are glowing with the budding life as well as your love for them, and that shines through in my stunning work as a maternity photographer Boston trusts. One of my greatest loves and passions is capturing the love between mother, father, and the baby on the way, and that is evidenced by the heartwarming photographs that I produce for Boston families.
I often choose locations to shoot in, such as a park that offers both natural and manmade beauties for the parents-to-be to pose on and around. This includes things like sparkling bodies of water and sprawling trees as well as structures like a beautiful footbridge or a bench. With the perfect location chosen for my shoot, I like to start off with a few shots of the happy couple together. I take shots that are cute and endearing, such as the couple snuggling up together by a lake and enjoying the time spent laughing in each other’s arms. We will also take a few casual and candid photos of the two smiling at each other, as well as some posed shots that look great in a frame.
I enjoy taking photos that include a few props that remind one of the baby to come. Usually, this means tiny shoes that your unborn beloved will soon fit into. Shoes can go in the foreground with the parents in the background. The shoes can also be held beside the mother’s tummy or each of the parents holding one shoe. There are a number of ways to incorporate an appropriately colored pair of shoes into your photos that you may choose to use as a birth announcement!
Another cute idea I like to incorporate is using the ultrasound photograph of your unborn baby. Mother and father can each hold a corner, or they can gently press it to the mother’s belly for an adorable peek into the life within.
Taking shots of the mother alone I find imperative. She is carrying a life inside of her and should be honored for it. I enjoy taking photos of her caressing her tummy that holds the child and looking down at the unborn baby endearingly. A mother’s love is unsurpassed and showing that in my photos is a privilege I do not take for granted.
While we are thinking about solo photos with the mother, it is important that we do not forget the importance of a father’s love. Shots of the father kissing or touching the baby bump, or otherwise being sweet and loving toward the mother and baby are important and precious.
There is no greater gift than that of bringing a new life into the world to shower with love and guiding it to grow. Let me capture the moments leading up to this when you contact my maternity photographer Boston service at PHONE/EMAIL today.
Your pregnancy is a very intimate and personal time. It is also a time filled with immense love for your growing child–a love that knows no bounds or faults, even before the precious baby is born. I strive to provide maternity photography Boston mothers feel comfortable partaking in, and this is evidenced by my delicate pregnancy photos that make the mother feel at home.
I like to start this type of photo session by focusing on the mother by asking her beforehand to wear a stunning white dress of her choosing. Whatever she arrives in will be perfect, as the color white displays purity, and with this in mind, I hope to capture the purity of the love between mother and child. Then, I gently fasten a bow around her middle. This bow is the classic color blue, or the traditional color of pink, depending on the gender of the child. After a few shots of her with the bow, I opt to bring the father into the picture.
Before the shoot, I also ask him to wear a shirt that matches the gender of the baby, thus, the bow. In these introduction pictures, the couple is pictured holding up balloons in blue that say underneath them the gender of the child. In this case, the balloon says, “boy.” With a few pictures of the balloons under my belt, we move on to intimate pregnancy photos, ones that show the father bent down to carefully kiss the mother’s growing belly. This shows the father’s love for the child.
We resume with photos of the two of them together in the sunny, green forest. The natural beauty of their surroundings provides a stunning backdrop in which to take my photos. Often, as a Boston portrait photographer, I like to use natural, outdoor settings in a way that compliment the subjects of my photos. This way the setting does not detract from the family at hand. I add in a banner that the couple holds between them. The blue banner holds the happiest statement: It’s a boy! A few shots of them looking into the camera while holding the banner are followed by them gazing lovingly into each others eyes.
I do enjoy taking traditional shots as well. These include images of the mother-to-be gently caressing and holding onto her tummy with delight in her eyes as she conveys her thrill regarding the life inside of her. She is pictured on a grassy, sunlit path in the woods, and her smile is as bright as the sunshine around her.
Finally, I include a casual photograph of the happy couple together. No instructed posing goes into this shot. Instead, I simply let them be themselves and stand before me as the elated couple that they are, and their smiles truly speak one thousand words.
