Family Pregnancy Portrait

Just to prove it’s not all about artistic nudes and bare bumps and whatnot, I asked a friend if she’d like some photos with her children – just before giving birth to the latest addition to the family. Of course the idea was to get the bump in there too, but with his little sisters in shot as well. I’m sure this will not be the last time the little chap is fussed over and prodded by his older siblings.

Monthly Pregnancy Portrait

I finished this project a few weeks early thanks to this young man’s early arrival – he’s barely ten days old. We never did get the chance to do the ‘eight month’ shot, as his mum rang to say she’d had a little boy!  I have a feeling this type of pregnancy portrait will be a popular option, at least first time around. Although I’m reliably informed that different babies can produce very different ‘bumps’, so who knows?

 

 

Demo Pregnancy Portrait

It’s all set. End of March.

As pregnancy portraits are normally fairly private affairs, I figured there might be some women out there who aren’t sure whether they’d want to do it or not. So to give people the opportunity to see what goes on, without having to do it for themselves first, I’ve organised a demonstration pregnancy portrait session – for the public. Adult ladies only though. Sorry gents.

It will cover various styles of pregnancy portrait, from fully clothed to artistic nude, and I’ve hired a model so no audience participation is required!

Obviously this blog reaches far and wide and many readers won’t be able to get here, but if you’re more local and would like to come, please ring/email etc. and let me know.

Bump

Anything that gives people a reason to want to be photographed is a good thing. Of course that could sound purely commercial, me being a photographer and all, but it’s true nonetheless. Looking back over a lifetime of images is a pleasure and a privilege. But who would have thought we’d have Demi Moore to thank for cementing the place of the Pregnancy Portrait in the future family album? There are few more significant times in our family life than when expecting a baby.

Photography is in large part about shapes, and I don’t just mean nude photography. The addition of a shapely bump to the equation only makes things better, gives more choice and creativity.

I owe a big thank you to the subject of this photograph (she knows who she is) for being a wonderful customer, for enjoying the process so much, and for allowing me to use some of the images – I hope your husband likes them as much as everyone else seems to.
