Wokingham Maternity Photographer // Kirsty's Pregnancy Photoshoot
Lifestyle Maternity Photos in Woodley
When Kirsty got in touch for a chat about her Maternity Photoshoot I couldn't wait to share my ideas with her. We decided that a lifestyle home shoot would work best for Kirsty, so arranged for a date and time that suited her.
When I arrived the first thing that Kirsty said was that she didn't really want to be in them, asking me to just capture her beautiful bump. As with many pregnant Mums-to-be, Kirsty felt that she didn't want to be photographed feeling 'fat' and tired. Hearing that made me feel so sad, not just because she may regret not capturing such a special time to look back on but that she felt that way about herself. I totally get it, being a Mum of three I remember how I felt towards the end of my pregnancies - a big, fat hot mess! But let me tell you Mamas, you look nothing but utterly beautiful (trust me, I'm a professional!)
Anyway, we continued with the photoshoot. I captured some gorgeous images of Kirsty's blossoming bump, using props from around her Woodley home including their scan picture and a very cute Jellycat bunny from their nursery. We even snuck in a shot with Kirsty's cutie pie Niece.
As Kirsty became more comfortable in front of the camera she agreed to becoming more present in the photos, and we were able to capture some stunning shots of her as she awaited the arrival of their first baby. I was over the moon that I was able to put Kirsty at ease, and that she felt relaxed enough to be 'in' her maternity photos. I know that she will be grateful that we were able to capture these memories for her to look back on forever.
