Hello I am Alex Compton with Luminescence Photography in Pahrump, Nevada. I would like to share a few pointers for taking maternity pictures. That stage in a woman's life she is usually very, very sensitive about her figure. Nonetheless if she has approached you she has wanted to have some of these for her memory book, but she is not really generally likely to want to share them too publicly. That said we want to make sure to play on that sensitivity. And I suggest using some lighting techniques such as making very, very soft lighting, and perhaps showing more of a silhouette or almost silhouette of the shape and the form. Also the bonding of the mother with the baby while still in it's womb. You get pictures of them resting their hands on it perhaps looking down. Making it almost a silhouette, but not quite just so you can barely make out the forms is one way of making, doing it with real soft focus is generally a very nice shot for the mother. Especially if it is turned a little side ways so they can really get the form shape. Another suggestion is to take pictures involving the husband, and get the bonding, and the communication between the husband and the wife, and the brining in, and uniting of the baby. Perhaps them both holding their hands, and holding it also onto the baby. Or him resting his head on the stomach listening for the heartbeat. Just a few ideas to share with you today.
