I must admit - pregnancy shoots make me nervous. So much of what I create comes from 'feeling'. When he catches her eye and they start to giggle or when a mother looks at her baby with love and warmth. Pregnant women seldom feel their best toward the end of their term. How do I pose a woman who feels like a tank?
Danielle and I had a bit of time to chat before Mark arrived from work. She told me that she very nearly didn't make it and had to 'team talk' herself off the couch. I'd say 50% of maternity shoots that I book will postpone for another day or even flat-out cancel. Well done Danielle for soldiering through.
Danielle and Mark were extremely comfortable in front of the camera -making any anxiety I had disappear, and I really really like the shots that we got.
I'm leaning towards the B&W more on this shoot. Anyone with me on this?
TIP: For posing on a shoot like this, try not to think about the presence of the photographer...enjoy the moment that you are having with each other and if that means moving position slightly away from the photographers suggestion to get comfortable - do it..
I spent a lovely afternoon at the Botanical Gardens with my friends Linda, Julie and Pearl...and their beloved dogs. The dogs had a great time, and so did we.
I've been ITCHING to get these pics edited, but my computer was in for repairs this week. I'm so grateful to have it back (slightly scary how much so) and so excited to get this post up.
After having done a maternity as well as a New Born session with Gina and Luke, it was wonderful to meet each of their parents who were in Singapore visiting - it was almost as though all the puzzle pieces had come together, making the picture complete. (It was touching)
These were done at the Singapore Botanical Gardens. Wonderful Place - I was spoilt for choice as far as backdrops were concerned.
