We have all heard about the so called “pregnancy glow”. As a professional photographer, I am always quick to notice it in my clients. It is hard to describe what the pregnancy glow exactly is in words, but there is a beautiful radiance and an emanating positive energy that I always notice. That being said, the energy visible to me is not always recognised by them.
Although a pregnant woman may look beautiful in our eyes, in her own opinion, she might not be feeling as attractive. While we think they look adorable with their round stomachs, they on the other hand may feel fat, plump, bloated and noxious. Many pregnant women shy away from the camera simply because they don’t feel beautiful.
The important thing to remember is that those negative feelings are internal. Pregnancy is a natural and beautiful experience which is why I believe taking a photography photo-shoot is the best thing to do. It’s an amazing time in a woman’s life, and a proficient photographer will be able to capture the splendor of this wonderful experience. This is an extraordinary time and the memories you capture now will bring happiness during the later years.
If you are not sure what you want to do for your photo-shoot, I have good tips/ideas up my sleeve. Helping families create memories during such a meaningful time is extremely rewarding for me as a photographer.
