I had a beautiful expectant family in the studio recently and the mum to be, like all pregnant women, was more than a little nervous about photos of her gorgeous tummy. The most wonderful thing about maternity photography is that we have never taken a bad photo of a mum to be – bumps just seem to love our cameras.
Our recent recognition from Asian Parent pregnancy.sg website as the best maternity photographer in Singapore may highlight the quality of the photos we take, but capturing the sense of wonder, nerves and excitement in expectant parents is one of the best parts of my job.
These sessions invariably end up in lots of laughter as the reality of a bulging tummy can form the perfect canvas for bump messages but we always produce timeless images that simply show the love that is already immeasurable for these much anticipated babies.
I always have a sense of connection with mum and dad in these sessions, being a mum myself and recognizing the same emotions that we all feel at these most exciting times in life. This connection is even stronger when baby arrives and I get the opportunity to do their newborn photography during their first two to three weeks, already the centre of the family and at the beginning of life’s amazing journey.
