Why Be Photographed Pregnant?
Here’s what our clients tell us about why they to do a maternity session:
‘I want to show my baby how excited we are for their arrival!’
This is a wonderful reason for coming in for a maternity photography session, and one we hear from families where even the kids come in for the belly session. We can photography you; you with your husband; and then with your kids at the same session.
‘I love being pregnant, and I want to cherish it.’
We’re honored whenever we work with women who feel this way, because we know how important the images we create will be to them. This is often a motivating factor for women who choose to show a little more skin during their baby bump session, as those are the images that best showcase their pregnant belly.
‘This is probably the last time I’m going to do this, and I want to capture everything.’
One of the reasons we offer a money back guarantee at Focus Photography is that we recognized the importance of what we do for you, and that life doesn’t always give us another try.
If your pregnancy is as important to you as it is to our past clients, we invite you to contact our studio for a free consultation, where you can explore all the options available to you for maternity photography.
A few of the reasons you should come to Focus Photography
We’re lighting experts: Our maternity images feature strong directional lighting to flatter your shape, and shading to add contour. It’s a dramatic style made popular by Hollywood in the 1940s, but the difficulty of the technique and the equipment requirements leave very few studios able to recreate it.
Look at the women in our maternity photos, and you’ll see a smooth, radiant complexion to their skin. Our exclusive SoftFocus™ System combines the gentlest lenses with the most flattering processing to ensure you’ll look terrific.
We have an in-studio digital artist: Every image that leaves our studio is expertly rendered and retouched to perfection. Whether you’re concerned about stretch-marks, weight gain, or you just want to look well-rested, we’ll make sure you look great.
“Will and Lucia made my maternity session so easy, and I love the images. I’m so glad I’ll see you all year for the Baby Plan!” – Carla Bush
“John and I took hundreds of pictures of my developing belly throughout my pregnancy, but there isn’t one I’d want to show our baby Emily some day. They were just throw-away selfies.”
“But every image from our maternity photo shoot at Focus Photography shows how excited we were for her, how much we loved her, and how grateful we are for this miracle. That’s what we want Emily to know, and when she’s old enough to read the Love-Notes book Focus made us, I think she’ll treasure those feelings and images too.” – Elaine Markham
“Focus Photography made me feel totally comfortable about wanting pictures of my pregnant belly, and created beautiful images I’m grateful for. ”
” Before I came to Focus, people like my mother kept asking why I’d ever want to do it – now they all tell me how lucky I am to have these images. God gave me this little boy, and I loved being pregnant. ” – Sarah Bowers
“Thank you so much Focus Photography for capturing the beautiful side of my pregnancy!”
“I’ve been photographed before, at my wedding, for engagement pictures, and when I was a high school senior. Not once in all those times did I feel as confident and feminine as I felt during my maternity session. I felt awkward those other times because I didn’t know what to do (and got no help from the photographers), but Will told me exactly what I needed to do – I wish I’d found Focus Photography earlier.” – Anna Marcus
“There’s only a handful of photographers on the East Coast doing the kind of artistic black and white photography that you do at Focus Photography. We’re thrilled with our belly portraits, and even though it was a long drive to you, it was totally worth it!”
“Mel and I never thought we’d come to Maine for a maternity photo shoot studio! We’re just outside of Boston, and we assumed we’d be going somewhere there. But while there are thousands of photographers listed, there weren’t many that offered what we wanted. They all wanted to come to our place, and photograph us in our bedroom. We don’t have a studio in our house! We wanted something unique – not what we live in every day!”
“Our maternity photos session with you was just what we were looking for. Melanie was nervous about her weight, and Will helped her feel confident. I was feeling out of place, and you made me right at home, and an important part (I think) of the shoot. And Melanie is so happy with the portraits in Cole’s room, that if we don’t have another child, we can remember this time beautifully. ” – Kimber and Melanie Keller
