Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph Farah and Chandler’s Maternity Session. I met this couple several of years ago and I have to say that they are one of the most adorable couple’s I’ve had the pleasure to meet! With their natural warmth, their contagious joy and enthusiasm, it was a real pleasure to photograph them.
For this session, the couple couldn’t decide on any particular style and ended-up telling me that they wanted them all! And as all future parents, they were overwhelmed with everything that needed to be done before childbirth. Hence, instead of doing multiple sessions as it would normally be done, we did everything in one session of 4 hours! Least to say it was a challenge, but we had lots of fun and together and we manage to take all the photographs planned!
In order to make our task doable, my husband, sidekick and I did the staging a day before the shooting. The couple wanted a very bohemian ethereal decor for their first look. So we used lots of whites, net curtains fabrics and some earth tones accessories to create the atmosphere.
As the focus of the second staging was much more on fabrics and accessories; it was a lot easier to do. I always prepare my lighting set-up in advance in order to waste a little time as possible on the day of the shoot.
I am grateful to have the chance to create lovely images for special occasion such as this one. Without any further ado, here are the photos of Farah and Chandler’s maternity session.
