I love photographing new beginnings, whether that is an engagement/wedding or a pregnancy photoshoot. There is just so much love between the couple I am photographing and I immerse myself and get caught up in their excitement and smile with them.
Amelia was 34 weeks pregnant when I photographed she and Matt. They were so lovely and receptive to my thoughts and ideas in consultation with theirs, despite a little hesitation on Matt’s face when he saw me turn up with balloons! I photographed them in the most beautiful setting, completely private and they could just be themselves. The balloons were a great prop for the setting and they helped relax them both with me. There is always those first few moments when you meet someone for the first time. If I use a prop it gives me the opportunity for a little directing and gentle encouragement and fun before I start photographing them more intimately together.
