I was approached recently and asked if I would be willing to take some pregnancy photographs that were not ‘cheesy’. Now, starting point is, what is ‘cheese’? Couple of emails later and we both agreed with each other’s definitions of cheesy pregnancy images. You know the ones. Hand hearts over bump. Baby’s name in bricks over bump etc etc.
We agreed we were looking for low-key imagery that highlighted the beauty and wonder of the final stages of pregnancy. My client was more than willing to be brave and try some nude stuff as that best showed her wonderful state and gorgeous curves off the best. She is, by her own admission, not a model but just a person wanting to capture her current beautiful state.
We met up after discussing ideas and thoughts on email and she proved to be both more than capable as a model and also great fun to be around. Her beauty was both inside and out. For obvious reasons she wishes to remain anonymous but has given me permission to publish a couple of the finished images images. we are both pleased with the outcome and think these images demonstrate her ‘miracle of life’ state and celebrate the beauty of motherhood.
