A pregnancy is a one of a kind period in a mother’s life, as it marks the much anticipated arrival of a new member to the family. This unforgettable moment may last only 9 months, but it can come and go in a flash. We believe that this special journey should be documented in a maternity shoot, and here’s why:
Treasure The Memories Forever
A pregnancy is something that can usually only occur a handful of times in your lifetime if you’re lucky, and with some women, it can be a rarity. This is all the more reason to capture these extraordinary moments in a professional photoshoot, so that you can look back in years to come with pride and fond memories. Many women who decide not to get a pregnancy shoot done often regret it when they look back on this period, especially when they realise it was one of the most momentous occasions in their lives, which cannot be replicated, as every pregnancy is different. A maternity shoot will be sure to trigger beautiful emotions for you later down the line, as well as for the rest of your family, most notably to the child that you gave birth to!
Embrace Your Beauty
Many women often feel insecure during a pregnancy, mainly due to the increased weight and change in body shape. Add to this the fluctuation in moods and hormonal changes, and it can be a testing time mentally as well as physically. This is where a maternity shoot can do wonders to lift your spirits, to serve as a reminder of how beautiful you really are. Although it is something you will be unaccustomed to, a pregnant belly is something that should be embraced and flaunted instead of repressed. It is also common knowledge that a woman carrying a child emanates a ravishing glow that is a unique phenomenon to pregnancy, and what better way to bring out this glow than with a professional maternity shoot!
At GK London, not only do we provide you with beautiful images of your pregnancy that will last a lifetime, we go out of our way to ensure that you really have fun with your shoot, and let your creativity run wild. Our experienced creative team are there to provide you with inspiration and help, and develop any ideas that you may already have. Depending on your preference, you can opt to use a range of different props to jazz up the shoot by injecting some humour into it. You could go for the more candid style, which is great in capturing you in a natural state, or you can simply pose for the camera and let your expressions come to the forefront of your images.
Bond With Loved Ones
Having your partner feature in your maternity shoot is a great way to bond with them, and a special way to capture the intimacy between the two of you. Because the father of your child doesn’t get to feel that innate sensation of carrying a child, having him alongside you in your shoot builds the affinity between him and the baby, especially when you both look back at the images in the future. Similarly, involving other family members in the photoshoot will display the all important unity and love that you all share for each other, while the occasion will surely be an honour for them to be present.
A maternity shoot is a great way to show the incredible capabilities of the female body – it is a celebration of being a woman, and the magnificent blossoming journey of motherhood. Nothing is more impressive than the endurance and willpower a woman shows during a pregnancy, which is why a photoshoot should honour this natural triumph by documenting its remarkable and unforgettable process.
