Maternity Photography - Preparation_ Poses And Locations Powered By Docstoc
					Every woman and her husband want to see their maternity photographs most
impressive and conveying. However there are no standards to judge the quality of
maternity photography. All depends upon the personal liking and preferences. Even
then, there are three major constituents of maternity photography. These are
preparation, poses and locations. Even if you opt to hire the services of a professional
photographer, you need to be involved actively at every stage. No photographer can
deliver the best in desired way without the cooperation of model. It is the combined
responsibility to get the best photographs of each and every session. As most of the
expectant mothers are inexperienced for this activity, therefore they need basic
guidance prior to the very first session of pregnancy photography.
First of all you need to prepare yourself mentally and physically both. You must be
convinced with the benefits of pregnancy stage photography. You must try to involve
your family members in to this act. It will eliminate all the shyness that you may face
during the sessions. Apart from this, the involvement of family members makes the
photographs more meaningful. Next important activity under preparation is the
selection of dresses and makeup. No particular dresses are required. Open neck front
open shirts, low belly jeans and short frocks etc are good to wear during the session.
These dresses make the belly exposing easy during the photography session. As the
maternity photography is aimed to capture your facial expressions and motherly look,
so it is better to pose with utmost simplicity. Just sprinkle some talcum powder over
the belly and hands. But do not put on dark facial makeup.
It may not be possible or feasible to follow the poses defined in the maternity
photography books or shown at the concerned sites. It is you, who will think about
and decide the poses according to your own liking. Do not pose too much stylish.
Sitting on the bed or chair, standing straight, leaning little forward and lying over the
bed and walking are the comfortable poses. Presence of children or husband gives you
more ideas to pose. In any case do not compromise with your comfort. You may hold
something beautiful in your hands. Flower bunch can be used to hide the body part
that you do not want to hide.
Third important thing, you need to think about is the location. You have sufficient
choices to choose according to your convenience. The first phase sessions should be
held outdoor while the sessions at the later stage should be kept indoor or near the
house. Garden, beach, park, terrace, amusement parks and bedroom are some ideal
location.
Plan your maternity photography well ahead of first session or even before contacting
the photographer. Do not allow him to govern you; instead discuss every issue with
him open mindedly. Remember, getting good maternity photographs is a combined
fun filled activity- it is not a task.
