Over the years, I have had many visitors to my photography website from all over the world. Some came looking for a photographer, others came looking for inspiration. Some visitors have been kind enough to e-mail their thoughts on my work, and many have asked for ideas and guidance about maternity portraits.
This guide has been designed with those people in mind. I hope that it will help parents-to-be who want to take their own maternity portraits, as well as photographers and other with an interest in maternity photography. If you have an iPad, you owe it to yourself to download the enhanced, interactive iPad version of the guide; it contains a wealth of information, photos and movies that expand upon the guide here.
I love the work I do. I wish it were possible to do portraits for everyone, but because of geography, time and expense, this is obviously not practical. Of course, If you are in the greater Boston area and you do decide to hire a professional, I hope you will consider me for your pregnancy photos!
Wherever you are, I do support and encourage hiring an experienced professional maternity photographer. But, whether the reasons are financial, personal, or creative, I know there are people who wish to try this on their own and that there are many of photographers just starting out who deserve a chance.
My hope is that through this guide I can share some of what I have learned, and help those who are striving to create a memorable pregnancy portrait. If you find this guide useful, please link to the guide from your blog, website, or message board.
