Maternity Photography as Trend
Maternity photography is so precious to me. Pictures of pregnant women in the past are rare to find. If you find one, she may be wearing a huge dress or the simple pant and tunic.
The trend of exposing the belly and honoring the shape of pregnancy has slowly begun to build up steam since the incredible cover of Vanity Fair in 1991. This year marked a real turning point in terms of maternity photography. This is the year Annie Liebovitz’s portrait of a very pregnant – and very nude – Demi Moore appeared on the cover.
Many of us were there and remember the shock and controversy of it! Read this article to see the cover and read some insight about this moment from the photographer and the magazine editor!
Maternity Photography Now
That one photo truly brought pregnancy out of the closet, never to be put back again. As a result, maternity photography has became a specialty. Did you know you can even find photographers doing boudoir maternity!?
I am very happy about this because we end up with stunning images as seen in this session. Gisel knew exactly what she was looking for in this maternity photography shoot. From the hair to the gown, she desired a personalized experience to celebrate this new addition to her family. What she got were images that will forever bring back the joyful feelings of her last days as a family of 3!
Maternity Photography Always Includes the Family
We had a beautiful time capturing some portraits of Gisel alone with her belly. Then Dad and Big Brother-in-waiting came to the photography studio for some family images.
Our signature tree was definitely on the list of shots to get. We couldn’t be happier with the result! This wonderful couple received their new bundle of joy and their wall art around the same time this December.
