Considering hiring a Boston photographer to capture your beautiful baby belly or precious newborn? It’s such an incredible investment because a picture really is worth a thousand words. When I look at the photos of my own children around our home, they transport me. I remember every detail about that specific moment in time with them. Luckily, there’s no shortage of talented professional photographers in the area that also offer birth and family photo sessions. So to get the inspiration flowing, here are a few maternity and newborn photo shoot ideas and tips you can discuss with your photographer.
Get Up Close and Personal
Tight shots of a newborn’s soft skin with all its dimples, rolls and creases are simply breathtaking. Add mom, dad or a sibling’s loving hands, and you’ve got a keeper.
The daily moments with your baby are the ones you’re going to want to remember. From the snuggles and smiles, to bathing and breastfeeding. So invite your photographer into your home and do your thing.
Embrace Your Inner Queen
Nurturing a life inside of you is no small feat. So go with whatever makes you feel beautiful, and expresses this magical time. Whether it’s a dramatic dress, a flower crown or waves crashing around you. You do you.
Whimsical photos in an Anne Geddes style are adorable. But be sure to contrast those creative shots with some back-to-basics ones. Think, classic white onesies.
Don’t Skip the Silhouette
We love details and close-ups for maternity shoots, but there’s something simply stunning about the outline of an expecting mama. Bonus points if a landscape she loves is the backdrop.
Say Yes to the Yawn
This is innocence, plain and simple. Can’t you just feel that sweet, sweet baby’s breath?
