For many people in Sydney, a pregnancy is the first time to have photos done after a wedding. Some people approach it as just a record, but it can and should be so much more. Let’s explore some of the reasons couples choose to have a maternity photography session to celebrate this time.
Pregnancy Photography is More Than a Record
The average phone now has one camera on the front, and two or more on the back. It is easy to make a record of your pregnancy, from the early days right up to the birth.
But even before phone cameras, couples have been making records of this magical part of their lives against a blank wall in their homes. So why would you invest in a pregnancy photography experience with us?
Well, I’m glad you asked. Photography is no longer about just capturing what you look like. Phone cameras can do that at any time. Professional photography is about capturing the connection you have with your loved ones.
A Chance to Rediscover Your Love
The story of a pregnancy starts with the journey of your love. Whether it’s your first baby, or you have older siblings, the story of your journey is what defines you as a family. It’s this love and excitement that we want to help you capture in your photographs.
We take time to learn about your story, your hopes and wishes, so that we can capture them in photographs that are naturally you. When baby grows up, how happy they will be to see and feel these emotions and the love which brought them into being.
A Time to Celebrate Your Body
It’s often said that mothers glow when they are pregnant. Of course, you’re not always walking on clouds. There are times you feel bloated, or your back hurts just from standing. You might think only super-mums can handle a maternity photography session, but it’s not true.
The right photographer can help you celebrate all the great things, so that you can look back at this time with joy. When bub grows up and asks what it was like when they were in your tummy, you want to show them happy moments that make them feel warm inside.
We help make the time easy, by taking you step by step through the whole experience, from preparation, to how to stand to show off that baby bump. We help you capture the best parts of this time, to capture the love you have for your unborn baby, to make you look and feel radiant.
We also have the industry’s best hair and makeup artists to pamper you on your special day.
Capture The Connection With Your Baby
If you think about it, a pregnancy session is your first family portrait. Pregnancy is a magical time where you have the opportunity to take a pause out of your busy life and celebrate who you will be as a family. We help you capture the connection you have with each other, so that when baby arrives they can see how much they were loved from the very start.
To do this, we use what we learned about your family and relationships to prompt you. As you interact naturally, we are able to anticipate and capture moments that are genuine and authentic.
Years from now when they grow up, you can share the love and anticipation you felt right at this moment
Celebrate Your Existing Family
When there is an older brother/sister, it’s often an exciting and also confusing time for them. You want them to share the love you have for your new baby, but you wonder whether they will understand what it means when they’re no longer the only child.
It’s a great opportunity to reaffirm how much you still love them, and show they are still important to you even though you’re spending weekends baby shopping now.
Show them how proud you are of who they’ve become, what they’ve achieved. Capture their unique personality, to share with bub when they grow up.
Capture their connection with the baby, and set that love as the basis of their relationship as they grow together.
Maternity photography is much more than recording what you look like. It’s capturing your connection as a family, and the emotions that you feel right now.
By capturing these moments and creating beautiful artwork for your home, you will be able to relive this time whenever you walk past the wall. Each day, you gain a boost of energy just by seeing your love and bond as a family.
