The best time to capture yourself in a professional photo is when you are at your very best. Guess what – no matter how you feel, pregnancy is that time when you have the most natural feminine beauty, and it is a special time of huge expectation. Let Aris Affairs Photography help you to capture your pregnancy with tips that will help bring out your beauty in the best possible way for your Prescott maternity photo shoot.
Just because someone owns a professional level camera and has some weddings under their belt, does not mean they know how to make an expectant mother look her best on film. Make sure to choose a photographer like Aris Affairs Photography that actually specializes in maternity photos, as they will be familiar with the right lighting, angles, and posing. And, there are so many “right” ways to capture your pregnancy, so study the styles and make sure that is what you are after.
It is worth the few dollars to schedule a professional hair and make-up session. Remember natural beauty is what you are after.
Discuss with your photographer what to wear. She will have many suggestions based on the types of photos you will be taking. Perhaps you want a couple of looks. Most maternity photographers may even have dresses in their “prop” collection that will suit your style, so before going out and making an expensive purchase, discuss this with your photographer.
Twenty-six to thirty-two weeks along is the best time to plan your photos. You want your belly to be full, but posing is still an option. Obviously, each mamma is diffent, so just judge where you are, you will know.
Location is important. Do you want an outdoor springy photo? Weather is important and time of day, as you will want the lighting to be just right. Or, do you want a soft hue in the comfort of your home? If you are going to do the shoot at home, it may make sense to invite your photographer over for suggestions prior to the shoot. Of course, the studio is an easily controllable environment, too.
We probably do not have to suggest this, but get familiar with maternity poses that fit you and your personality. Our job as the photographer will be to capture that special bond, but it will help if you have some favorite poses that you have seen.
If you are coming up on that window of time when your maternity photos will be the very best, contact Aris Affairs Photography, your local maternity photographer in Prescott, and let us help you capture this special time in the most beautiful way possible.
