I was first introduced to Rachel when she just found out she was expecting, but she did not know that I was a photographer at that time. Later on during her pregnancy , actually it was at her baby shower I mentioned to Rachel is she had considered doing a Maternity Session to document this very special time. Rachel, stated she had considered it but because she was shy in front of the camera she wasnt really sure if this was the right thing for her to do and she does not consider herself a "model" or that perfect shape !
I could tell Rachel was very interested in a Maternity Session so I continued our conversation later on after most of the guest had departed. I explained to Rachel that as a Professional Maternity Photographer there are various things that we can do in the studio that will help us get the beautiful photo's of the Mommies to be just by ensuring they are wearing the proper outfits which mostly are already in our possession and how we have her pose herself that will assist in how we photograph her to ensure we are getting the best outcome possible.
The next topic was one that is asked by almost every Mommy that comes to our studio.
That question is ...... what about the unwanted blemishes / stretch marks or dark veins that are showing on my belly, I just dont want those to be included in the picture bc they are so ugly . I was able to explain to Rachel, there are several things that we can do to reduce the amount of unwanted skin blemishes that can appear on her belly and during production and post production these blemishes will be addressed.
Rachel seemed thrilled after spending some time talking and reassured that all of the question's were answered in a professional manner. She was invited to the Studio for a walk thru to showed around and enjoyed her visit!
Rachel, was very nervous and shy for the first ten minutes, after that we broke ground with lots of laughs and giggling that she finally started to relax and enjoy the moment! Here is the final results of her Maternity Session! We can wait til her little one arrives in December!
