“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving”, as said by Aaron Siskind. Capturing moments is bliss and what can be more beautiful than capturing your baby bump?
Even though pregnancy comes with a lot of difficult phases, it is one of the most astonishing times in one’s life. Pregnancy can mean a beginning of a new stage with it bringing all changes; blemished face, swollen feet, stretch marks, round belly, heavy body and what not.
On the other hand, there are mommies-to-be who seem to enjoy their baby bump. For many, it is the time of celebration to welcome the little bundle of joy, to celebrate womanhood. These are the moments which cannot be explained but can only be expressed through photos. The moments which once captured are captured forever. It will make one remember little things long after everything is forgotten.
If you still wonder whether you should get a maternity shoot done, here are some of the reasons which will change your mind.
It Is Time to Reflect On the Journey
Photos trigger memories. Pregnancy is the time to reflect on the journey of life. Looking at them will lead you to reflect on how you became a family in the first place. You can bring back your happy memories of being pregnant like the feeling of the baby’s movements in the womb, your touching the womb etc.
Being pregnant is a blessing and pregnancy is the most beautiful, amazing and mesmerizing feeling in the world. You might feel terrible from inside but you should cherish your strength, courage, the initial bond with your baby and ecstasy of carrying another human life inside you. This feeling will not be permanent but a photoshoot would leave permanent traces in your life. It will make this period of your life, the most memorable one. A photoshoot indeed will draw out your love, beauty and femininity.
Bonding With Your Partner
A maternity shoot with your partner in it would definitely help you bond more. You would be more loved, delighted and appreciated. Both man and woman are in this together so; nothing would be more exciting and fun than capturing the intimate time of your marriage. You can also have a memory of your husband warmly touching your belly. Putting daddies-to-be in the picture would also help bond him with the child as well. Also it is a great way to involve your spouse in the process of pregnancy.
Flaunt Your Belly
Gone are those days when pregnant women used to stay at home, hiding their bellies, avoiding attracting attention etc. Time has changed and now, more and more women hire professional photographers to document a special and exciting time of their lives. Today is the perfect time to flaunt your belly. A perfect angle of the camera can make wonders to a picture. Be creative and enjoy your baby bump and use this opportunity to feel great about it.
Professional Shoots Over Home Photography
An experienced and skilled photographer can make you look gorgeous and glowing. A click at home or images shot at home by a friend or a family member will always miss the element of magic which an expert photographer can create. He can convert a shot into a tale of story; can create an art of work. He would know the best angles, the perfect light, the focus, depth etc. which would be missing in the shots take by an ordinary man. Great photos make great surprises.
There Would Be No Regrets
Get a photoshoot done so that there would be no regrets later on of not doing them. Pregnancy is a lifetime experience, is such an exciting time. Down the road, you might forget of what it felt like to be pregnant and expecting. Life will never be the same. So capture the emotions so you can look back on them with delight and heart filled with happiness.
Moreover, this document will be the first memory you would create with your child. And the photos a great gift to pass down to your child. This feeling is magical and you can save this magic into a document. This will be something you can treasure forever.
