There has in recent times been a higher demand for professional pregnancy photographers. This is motivated by a need to have the best reminders of their pregnant lives later. This however is usually not an easy exercise to undertake. The photographer has to cater to so many issues at once, like the mood of the client, makeup, poses executed, lighting and clothing. It is also tricky in the sense that a pregnant woman has minimal poses they can strike while remaining safe and comfortable. Variety thus becomes tricky to deliver.
It helps if you have decided to go for this photo shoot to keep certain things in mind. They help to make it happen and to happen in the best way possible.
It is important to be clear on how far along you are with the pregnancy. A good photo shoot can be done when a woman is starting her third trimester. A pregnancy at this stage looks its best, and the body is still strong enough.
The makeup will also look best when applied by a professional makeup artist. With a makeup artist on site, getting it as perfectly as the photographer wants is an easier task. This affects the quality and variety of photos you can take.
It is important also to consider what angles the photos will be taken at. There are cases where a view from the top gives off the best photos.
Photo shoots that occur at the client’s home should be done where there is no clutter. The best place for that to happen is the living room or bedroom. There needs to be a window nearby, to make use of natural light.
You need to also see to it that the props in the photos are well chosen. When items like booties, vintage plaques, other sibling baby photos, and the like are included, you shall end up with a more fun atmosphere. The photos will also be great.
The photos taken must all be in color. You shall hear people asking for either black and white or monochrome photos after the shoot. These shall be easy to convert from the colored ones. Later on, producing the colored ones shall be a simple thing to do. You cannot do this if all of them were monochrome.
If you are not careful you can end up with plain looking pregnancy photos. This is why the sharing of ideas and creativity on the part of the photographer are important. They shall make sure your shoot is fun and different. They shall work with the light, height, colors, makeup styles and poses to their best. You also need to see how comfortable you are around them.
