Tips For Photographing Expectant Mothers

Posted on: 20 October 2008

Over on DIY Photography, there is a great article for anyone who enjoys shooting portraits of expectant mothers.

The key to any photograph of human subjects is to capture the moment. This means conveying the emotions of the subjects and telling a story with a single snapshot. When it comes to maternity photos, there are several different angles you may choose to take in order to capture this special moment in a woman or in a couple’s life. These include:

  • The Mother-Child Connection
  • The Family Bond
  • The Beautiful Female

By setting the pregnant woman or the woman and her significant other in certain poses and by using creative angles and backgrounds, you can better capture these special moments and tell a touching and memorable moment with a single photograph.[via DIY Photography]
