Something New: A Maternity Photo Shoot

25 May

About a week ago I tried something new, I took maternity photographs.

I had not explored the world of maternity photography before, but it is a set of photography skills I would like to have as maternity, labor, and newborn photography have always sparked my interest.

I am always very nervous when photographing people so I don’t tend to wander in that direction often, but this is a kind of portraiture I think I could really enjoy once I got comfortable with my own skills in posing, which means practice!

I enlisted my wonderful cousin and his amazing wife who are expecting their second child and we headed to a nearby nature area for these photographs.

All in all I was pretty happy with the results and I learned a lot about what I could do differently next time, which is always important. 🙂

      Thanks, I have the most difficulty with guiding expressions. Overall I was quite happy though. 🙂
