JILL MOST PHOTOGRAPHY MATERNITY
Congratulations! Having a baby is a very exciting time in your life! It does not matter if this baby is your first, second or even your fifth; it is still a very exciting time for your family.
There is so much time that passes between purchasing maternity clothes to picking out your baby’s first birthday cake. This time goes by very fast and no one wants to forget about it. You will want to remember every moment of the first year of your baby’s life.
This is where I come into the picture. I would love to help you document and remember those special milestones. This can be done from the time of maternity to when your baby turns one-year-old. My job as a photographer is to capture all of these moments and turn the photos into something that you will treasure forever. I understand that when photographing a baby there is a large amount of planning as well as a very large amount of patience that goes into that time. You should be assured that I am good at both of these.
When a woman is going through a pregnancy she will soon learn that it is a fast time of development. Your body is growing a baby and it is wonderful but at the same time it is not always the most comfortable thing. You will experience cramps, bloating, swelling as well as many other things and you may not find yourself feeling great- and that is okay. As a photographer it is my number one priority to make you look and feel like a superstar even if it is only for an hour or so. Once the photo session is complete you can get back into your comfy clothes and eat whatever you want for the rest of the day.
This kind of maternity session is designed to accomplish one thing. To celebrate, document, and remember the life that you are growing inside of you. It also happens to be one of my favorite kinds of sessions. I love the glamour, romance and most of all the beautiful belly that comes with a maternity session. A maternity session can take place anywhere you want it to. It can be in my studio or offsite at a location that you select. Examples of offsite locations are a beach, a field right before sunset, a park, or a garden or wooded area.
Photographs such as these will help your children to know that you are proud to be their mother and will show them how happy you were to have them inside of you.
When to Schedule??
For most soon to be moms the perfect time for your maternity session seems to be somewhere between the 30 and 32-week mark. You might wonder why this time is preferred. It is the time where your belly is the perfect size but you are not swollen and puffy like you will be towards the final couple of weeks of your pregnancy. In the past I have completed sessions close to the delivery time and have had excellent results but from the feedback I received from the soon to be moms has helped me with the decision to encourage any future clients to select a time earlier in the pregnancy. This is when you are feeling your best and are more comfortable.
What to Wear??
One of the most important decisions you will make regarding your maternity session is what you will wear. This will play a major role in how your feel during the session as well as the photographs once they are completed.
My goal is to show off your beautiful baby body so some of the clothes you pick should be more snug fitting. A couple of examples of these are chunky sweaters or long dresses that flow.
If you are concerned about the colors you are selecting I can tell you that solid colors tend to work the best. If you are looking for advice on specific colors, I will tell you that this decision is completely up to you. However, some of my favorites are pastels and shades of white. This will help to create more vintage inspired photographs. The only thing that is important is that you feel the most comfortable, confident, and beautiful as you can be.
A Little bit of Advice
One of the pieces of advice that I give all of my moms to be is that you should pamper yourself before your session. What this means is that you should get your hair and nails done or even take a bubble bath to relax.
This is something that will not take very long but it will help you to feel relaxed and wonderful!
By simply feeling relaxed you will find that you will receive the best photographs your can. You will see in the photos how relaxed you were as well as comfortable and confident. The most important thing to remember is that this should be a very special and fun day for you.
