Greetings everyone! Hope you've had a great week so far. If you've not, hangin' there, you're not far away from the weekends.
So here's a maternity shoot that was done back in late November last year. Joy had contacted me over facebook (FB) regarding a maternity shoot. As we communicated over FB, I soon realized that Joy was expecting her second child and I was all excited! Well, you might say that's no biggie.. but to me, it was a wonderful opportunity to include a kid into someone's maternity pictures.
Having photographed mainly first time mothers, I've always wanted to undertake maternity assignments that include kiddos albeit the warnings from other photographers that kids are hard to handle and they'll ruin whatever photos I'm taking etc.. well, I beg to differ!
My experience from this shoot?
- I love the spontaneity from a child
- Their unpredictability keeps me on my toes
- Their natural smiles melt hearts
- Their innocence when querying me makes me giggle just thinking about the questions
But of course, there were moments during the shoot that even the parents were at wits end trying to get the child to stop running all over the place. But in the end, everything went well and don't be too surprised that kids (with the right technique of pacifying them) can cooperate quite easily.
Well that's all from me folks, here are some photos from the shoot for your enjoyment!
Have a great remainder of the week peeps.
