Maternity and Baby Photoshoots
Having a baby is one of those huge, wonderful times in your life that is worth capturing. It's such a special time and goes by so fast. In the blink of an eye, it's all over, they're growing up fast and you're looking back on old snapshots on your phone thinking "why didn't I take more pictures? Why didn't I take better ones? Why didn't I get a picture like this, or of him/her doing that?"
I think that all of the time - and I'm a Photographer!
When your baby is first born, setting time aside to take nice photos and preserve how perfect and small they are might be something you intend to do, but in the whirlwind of appointments, family visits, nappies, milk, sleep (or lack of it) the first few weeks and months fly by (they really do, even if they don't feel like they are in that moment). Before you know it, it's too late.
And in the later stages of pregnancy when you have a glorious bump and might want to capture it in some gorgeous photos, you're often tired, busy preparing for the new arrival, finishing off at work before maternity leave and going to and fro from midwife appointments. And did I mention tired?
It's so much easier to get someone else to take the pictures. No planning, no forgetting, no time issues. It can take a little as one hour out of your time from start to finish (although a couple of hours is better!). The shoot can take place in the comfort of your own home or somewhere nearby, reducing travel time and carrying everything but the kitchen sink with you. And best of all? Mums can be in the pictures, not stuck behind the camera.
