OH my Oh my maternity!!!! How much can I express that I am over the moon about this maternity photo session. First off this girl is absolutely gorgeous, glowing and so much fun! She brought a different side of a maternity session then I regularly do. It is so nice to have change things up and get a different perspective. Amaris is a local photographer in the Seattle area. How awesome is that as a fellow Seattle newborn photographer I feel pretty lucky to have someone who wants to work with me. It was a refreshing change to have someone who knows the perspectives from behind the lens for what we are looking for in a gorgeous maternity photo shoot. She danced and moved into poses that were natural and relaxed. It was very easy to work with her and I learned a few things that I can take with my next maternity photo clients.
As a Seattle maternity photographer I learned a few tricks that I can apply to clients that have no previous modeling experience or photography experience. Really I have always been very good at getting clients to relax but I never thought to incorporate dancing into my maternity photos! It is just one more tool to get my maternity clients to relax and be themselves in front of the camera. Because really who regularly is putting themselves in front of the camera for an entre hour plus just getting their photo taken? My job as a Seattle newborn photographer and Seattle maternity photographer is to help you relax and enjoy the experience and process of maternity photos.
The great thing about right now is here in Seattle we are having some gorgeous weather! Sunny days beautiful skies and warm enough to get outside and take advantage of it for maternity photos. I love doing in studio sessions but when the weather is this nice you cannot pass up the opportunity to get outside and enjoy it. The bonus part of doing maternity sessions on location is that it is a natural way to get pregnant mommas to feel like themselves and enjoy the experience!
