Newborns have the cutest faces and it is always fun to feature them. Of course we never know what experssion we will get.
This little girl decided she loves the camera. She was a very happy baby while at my Phoenix studio. That makes my job as a photographer much easier. I always allow a little extra when photographing babies to make sure we can get some great photos.
February was the month for Maternity photos. I had a ton of pregnant moms come in for photos (no pun intended). It is always great to see the happiness these new babies are bringing the families.
Another thing I was happy to see was so many brought the dads and siblings in for some photos too. Nothings better than getting the family photo where everyone is in anticipation of the new child.
This is one of my favorite styles for maternity photographs. The future mom does not look at the photographer, but instead looks off thinking about her pregnancy.
And of course you see I love to create these photos in black and white. I find B&W adds to the feeling.
Always get requests for different ideas as a maternity photographer. This time the desire was to use blue fabric to show off the baby bump.
Baby Bump in Blue
It is a beautiful way to show the future boy is on the way. Of course the follow-up with newborn photos is often not far behind. Can’t wait to meet this little cutie.
Some of my maternity photography clients returned returned recently for photos of their newborn baby. As a photographer it makes me feel great to see how happy these new families are.
Cute baby smiles for photographer
Working with infants can be challenging for a photographer because they tend to set their own schedules. So I always have some flexibility in my schedule for these sessions to allow for this. I would always rather take a few extra minutes to allow for a meal break to make sure we have a happy baby. It makes all the difference in the final result.
The Baby Movie
Like I said last week, I would have another fun maternity photo session idea. Pregnancy is such a fun and special time that it is the perfect time to start having some laughs. Coming attractions movie poster is another of my crazy photographer ideas.
Maternity Pin-up "You're a Daddy!"
Sometimes it can be fun to be a bit more creative with maternity photos than tradition. My photographer mind is always going off into left field with ideas. We had a great time creating this photo as a fun pregnancy pin-up that everyone got a big laugh out of. Come back next week to see another fun idea.
Part of what I like about being a maternity photographer is that I can use photographs to show the love for the future child.
Baby love maternity
I love the mood this type of photo shows. Pregnancy is a time to be shared.
Often featuring the couple in maternity photographs can create some amazing memories. This couple is a perfect example of what I am talking about.

So consider doing some couples shots for your maternity session.
I had a great time photographing some twins for their 3 month shoot. I love to show off the size difference between the baby and the parent. Here is one of the twins showing off.
They will be back in 3 months for their 6 month shoot.
