Updated: Jan 26, 2019

If you are about to be a mother, this is a time to cherish. That lovely glow of your skin and the joy you feel when you are expecting make this period of your life one that needs to be remembered. What better way to do this than to capture it on film in a professional NYC Maternity Shoot?



We realize the changes your body is experiencing may make it difficult for you to be comfortable in front of a camera. Here are some ideas for a photo shoot that are guaranteed to make you feel beautiful.



Include Your Children: If you are expecting your second or third child, the children you already have are probably more excited than anyone else. Establish the sibling bond early by making your children the stars of your photos. An up close shot of them hugging your belly captures a precious moment that you will reflect on for years to come.

Try a Mother Earth Image: Pay tribute to the ultimate mother, Mother Earth. Connect with nature by choosing an outdoor scene, like a field or waterfront, as a backdrop. Capitalize on the theme by wearing a long flowing dress and floral crown for a whimsical, bohemian touch.





Go for a Silhouette Shot: A silhouette shot is simple to capture and makes for a lovely photo. Best taken in window with natural light to highlight your beautiful belly. This will guarantee amazing results that make your pregnancy the focal point in a lovely and tasteful way.





Add Humor: Pregnancy is a tender time in a woman’s life, but let’s face it... there can be funny moments as well. Capture your sense of humor by taking a picture of yourself wearing a funny, pregnancy related tee shirt, or trying to tie your shoe. Or add a sign like our couple be low and add some amazing humor. This will be a great shot that your whole family can look back at for laughs.
