Our Mother's are special and carrying a wonderful gift of life. We take all the necessary steps to be sure that our mothers are comfortable and feel safe at all times during the shoot. Family maternity sessions can be so amazing but also really tricky. Posing and direction take on a life of their own when you add kids into the mix.If the older sibling(s) are still very young, it can be stressful to get them in the shot and have mom show off her belly. So we like to keep it light and fun. Even thou we will have a few ‘classic’ shots like you normally would, but we stay focused on the interaction between family members so we can get some creativity worked into this special session. Pets can be a great addition to maternity pictures. I’ve met so many couples that want to include their fur babies. Choosing the location wisely will help in working with animals.
