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.
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.
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.
As you probably know by now I love the classic images when it comes to maternity photography. I guess somewhere in the photographer part of my brain I can’t not shoot some of these beautiful images when I have a pregnant woman in front of my camera.
Classic B&W Maternity Belly Photograph
Looking at this photo as inspired my next fun maternity photo. Soon as I get a chance you will see something I’ve never seen before. It’s going to be great. Don’t miss out.
Unfortunately, we’ve probably all see those “Girls Gone Wild” commercials with those young women flashing for the camera. Luckily our pregnant flasher was much more tasteful. Just a simple flash of her growing belly.

All kidding aside, it’s fun for me as your photographer to play around a little when shooting maternity photos. I am always trying to create something fun and new. I have some really fun shots coming up in July, so you’ll just have to keep coming back to see.
As a maternity photographer, I know the key element of the photos will be the belly. The key is how to feature the belly in a photograph. I am always coming up with new ideas to make it fun. Over the next few weeks I hope to be showing a wide variety of traditional and very non-traditional maternity photos.
Hopefully this photos will give you some ideas for your maternity session with me. And just because you haven’t see a photo here, doesn’t mean I haven’t done it. I only show photos with permission, so there are lots of others ideas available.
B&W Maternity Belly
I like to vary between black and white and color photographs for maternity. Both work well with this type of portrait. The great part about digital, is you can choose B&W or color after the maternity photos have been taken.
There are many styles of photos that are popular in maternity photography. One of my favorites is the silhouette. It is a unique way to show off that big belly. I use a variety of poses when creating these photographs. Often it is mom alone, but the image also works with others in the photo.

These photos make great art pieces to hang as a large canvas in the home. It is something a bit different and something that a lot of studios don’t create. Keep an eye for some new unique ideas I will be showing over the next few months. You never know what I’m going to try next to make unique maternity photographs.
Bringing a new baby into a family is always a special event. Remembering the pregnancy with the entire family is becoming a popular addition to maternity photo sessions. Sometimes its siblings, other times it is grandparents are brought into the shoot.
Typically the siblings arrive towards the end of the shoot after mom has gotten her solo photos taken. This allows mom to concentrate on creating great photos without having to worry about anything else.
There are as many options as there are families when it comes to creating the perfect maternity photo. We are always open to your ideas to help you make your photos a true reflection of you.
Shortly after maternity photography session a bundle of joy enters your world. And of course you will come back to get some great newborn photos. One of the fun things to do is to compare how tiny your newborn is as they grow so very fast.
Sometimes a photo shoot has a change in plans. As a photographer I need to be ready to adapt to whatever happens. From bad weather to equipment problems, there are always surprises.
This week on of the pleasant surprise is when Amber came into the studio to shoot. She was showing me her lingerie and said that the one outfit was very retro. My eye immediately saw pin-up for the outfit and asked her if she would like to do some classic pin-up with it.
Amber jumped at the chance. She hadn’t even considered doing any pin-up photography for her shoot before, but now she was excited by the idea.
She loved the final shot and everyone she showed it to told her it was one of their favorites.
