In the age of social media and high-speed sharing, everyone has already seen pictures of the tiniest of toddlers. And they are simply adorable. The way they smile and sleep in the photos is just provides the cuteness overload we all need from time to time.
Yes, baby pics are great. But they are not exactly the latest trend in mum-and-baby photography. So what is? Babymoon photos! The time period when you get that visible belly is one of the proudest times in every mother’s life. And mums-to-be have finally started owning their incredible beauty. A lot of them therefore decide to go on holiday during this time and book a photographer to make these special moments last forever. No-one says you need to be at your skinniest to book a photo shoot. In fact, the exact opposite is ideal. Here are just some of the reasons why you need a babymoon session too.
There will be two beauties in the pictures: you and your pregnancy
Pregnancy is the most special period in a woman’s life. It is the epitome of motherhood and love, it is the very basis of life itself. Thankfully, women all over the world have started realizing its beauty and have started enjoying the visual side of things. When you see well-made pictures of a pregnant woman, you see hope, love and an amazing future journey. So why not put yourself in that position too.
As far as clothes and outfits for the babymoon photo shoot are concerned, there are as many schools of thought as there are mothers-to-be. Some of them prefer a simple but tight black dress that shows the curves of their belly nice and clear, while others prefer a more flowing model. Of course, you can always go for the bikini option as well and let everyone see the beauty of your body. Most of all, remember that you are the star of the photo shoot and that whatever you choose to wear, it will look great.
Your partner can be part of it
We have already mentioned that your pregnancy is the epitome of love. If both you and your partner feel like it, there is nothing more romantic than babymoon photos of you two. It shows how much you appreciate each other’s presence and how much you’re looking forward to the newest part of your family. It goes without saying that any eventual siblings to your little one are more than welcome.
Having your partner at the photo shoot and in front of the camera also gives you a lot more versatility in posing and style of the whole session. With a couple in the shot, the photographer can do a lot more than with a single person, in that you can have your photos taken in a candid manner, or you can go for a set of carefully selected poses.
Don’t forget the practicalities
When booking your session, remember to tell your photographer about any special requests you may have. Some soon-to-be mums don’t feel well early in the morning, for example, but most photographers prefer to shoot either in the morning or in the evening to get the best light of the day. There is no need to worry, though, they are professionals and they will always be happy to come up with a compromise to suit your needs.
Another important piece of information would be that you would be bringing another baby for the photo shoot. Your photographer would need to know this in order to be able to plan out your session according to your baby’s needs, especially if it is very small.
And finally, if you are not sure where to have your photos taken, it’s always worth asking your photographer about their opinion, especially since they are local and they may even be aware of various spots that you might not be able to find online.
All in all, a babymoon photoshoot can be one of the highlights of your pregnancy. There is no need to be afraid of it, this is one of the most beautiful parts of your life, after all. Just enjoy your time in front of the lens and let the magic and beauty of love take care of the rest. You will not regret it.
