What can I say? Maternity photography in Melbourne is trending and it’s clear why. You Melbourne mamas are a stylish bunch!
Maternity photography is so personal. You’re about to embark on the journey of a lifetime to welcome your new baby into the world. Your life changes in an instant. And the journey through pregnancy to motherhood is one worth capturing.
Why is maternity photography trending in Melbourne? Here are four reasons why.
Memories to look back on
It may not feel like it at the time, but you’re only pregnant for such a short time. Whether it’s your first or your fifth, pregnancy photography is such a special way to capture this beautiful moment in time. It’s one of the big reasons why maternity photos are so important.
Believe it or not, you will probably miss your bump one day. There’s something so special about running your hands over your bump and dreaming about the baby you’re yet to meet. Of course, there’s nothing like cradling your baby in your arms. But that doesn’t mean you can’t miss that short time in your life.
As you look back on your pregnancy photos, you’ll think of those happy memories of feeling those first baby flutters and kicks. Most of all, you’ll be so grateful that you took one hour out of those nine months to create memories that will fill you with so much love and joy.
It’s all about you
Any mum will tell you that they’re more likely to be behind the lens than in front of it. And when someone does take a photo of them with their children, it’s not always the most flattering angle.
I’m a mum so I know how hard it is. Even if you’re not a photographer like me, there’s a good chance you’ll earn the title of chief family photographer. You’ll take beautiful snaps of everyone else… but none of yourself!
A maternity photo shoot is all about you. I’m focused on you and your beautiful growing bump, 100% of the time. I’ll make you feel like the glowing goddess you are, growing a real life human inside of you. You can also include your partner in the shoot but really, it’s all about you.
Capture your glow
Pregnant women really do glow. I tend to plan my maternity photography for Melbourne mamas between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. This is the perfect time for peak glow, when your bump is big enough but you aren’t yet feeling too uncomfortable.
I offer maternity photography in my studio and outdoors so we don’t need to contend with the Melbourne weather. Included in the price is the use of different gowns from my collection. I have chosen these gowns because I know they help pregnant mamas to feel comfortable and they really highlight your curves and glow.
As you settle into the photo shoot, you’ll start to relax and I’ll capture the incredible connection between you and your bump.
Family keepsakes to treasure
You know that you’ll look back on these photos with fondness one day. But so will that baby who is growing inside of you. They will share the photos with their own children, proudly telling them about their gorgeous grandmother.
For many of the women I’ve captured during maternity photography shoots across Melbourne, I’ve also captured their newborn photography. And then their cake smash photography and other special family milestones and events. They trust me with creating those special family keepsake moments and I love getting to know them and their families.
