I’ve taken so many images, and have so many different favorites for so many various reasons. Social media, internet, and web-based portfolios are all great; but this online world we live in sometimes leads things to be a bit less personal. I believe that every image has a story to tell, and that’s what I love doing for my clients so much! I don’t always get a chance to tell the story behind every image though–what I love about it, what makes it special to me. So, I thought I would start a weekly blog post that featured one of my favorite images…deconstructed. The story behind it, the reasons I love it (whether they are technical reasons of lighting/composition/etc., or emotional ones about what and why the image makes me feel). So check back every week–some of these shares will be personal ones, and others will come from clients’ sessions past and present…one of your images might be featured here!
Look at that beautiful belly! There are a lot of things I love about this image…I love the colors–how they really pop and bring the scene to life. I love the mystery of it with Mom’s identity hidden behind the umbrella–it really makes this picture all about the baby…before she was even born! It also makes this image a classic and timeless one. It’s definitely something you could hang on your wall, and wait to see if your guests realize that it’s you :). It also makes this image not just a portrait, but truly a symbol of this time in her life and a reminder of all of those beautiful things that we feel when we’re carrying a child. For most women, pregnancy is something that will happen a couple or few times in her life, and there are so many wonderful feelings and moments to hold onto–maternity portraits can do just that, bring you back to a time that is so fleeting and so unique!
I am now offering Maternity Sessions as mini session add-ons to Newborn Sessions, and I have a new Baby Registry that is complimentary to all of my Newborn Session clients. You can read more about that here. If you would like to set up your Newborn’s portrait session (and/or add on a Maternity Session), contact me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org. These sessions are definitely time sensitive and should be scheduled as far in advance as possible! Thanks for reading and Happy Friday!
