For the past few years we turned down dozens of moms to be for pregnancy and newborn shoots, since we felt we were not qualified to handle someone else’s most precious. We have many of our own nieces and nephews so we have always loved children, but this new avenue just seemed a little too big for us.
Last year when both our sisters got pregnant at the exact same time, we were overjoyed but knew that sometime along the way we would need to overcome our fears and dive in boots and all! The idea of working with kids and moms to be wasn’t the only scary bit, but also how we would manage to add this to our list of things to do.
With so much newborn, pregnancy content on the net that we didn’t really like, we wanted to approach these shoots a little more true to our style. So we decided to approach them much like we approach our weddings. With a clean, cinematic eye and focus on the soft, intimate, gentle moments that surround this special time.
We love doing a pregnancy shoot followed up with a newborn shoot when the baby arrives. Both these shoots are very special but when combined in an album together, we love how the journey unfolds of this special time. Have you checked out our packages for these shoots:
