Veena booked her first maternity shoot for when she was already 36 weeks along. Generally my moms-to-be schedule a session earlier on in their pregnancy.My maternity shoots usually take place when my client is at 30-34 weeks so that mobility isn’t is as much of concern. Despite being so far along in her pregnancy, Veena was able to stand up and walk on her own. In my personal experience, moms usually need a hand from their husband or myself in order to feel stable. I was incredibly impressed with how well Veena carried herself without assistance! One of my favorite things about maternity sessions is seeing how differently moms handle pregnancy. They always make it look easy, no matter how far along they are. These photos clearly reflected how confident and excited Veena was about her beautiful bump.
A Little Peek Goes A Long Way
Veena’s excitement was easily recognized in her eagerness to pose and prop effortlessly. She took direction very well. She loved sneaking a peek after each shot. We had the pleasure of discussing marriage, family and pregnancy during her maternity session which made me much more aware of her culture. I really valued the conversation we shared and thoroughly enjoyed Veena and her husband’s friendly demeanor. Though I was hoping to photograph the precious newborn that these two created, I had the pleasure of booking some of the couple’s friends. My interaction with Veena and her family was so sweet and translated into a wonderful relationship that helped me understand the culture of her friends that also booked sessions. I am incredibly grateful for clients like Veena who share their experience with their loved ones.
