Maternity photographers are specialists within the field of portrait photography. Whether you are interested in a studio session or a more personal, intimate home setting, there is a specialist for you.
The goal of maternity photographers is to give you a portrait you are thrilled with. The first step in accomplishing this goal is to make you, the client, comfortable.
Often maternity photographers have a portable studio in order to photograph you in your own home. Doing so gives the photographer a better sense of who you are and what is important to you. While they are setting up the mobile studio, maternity photographers have the opportunity to observe you in your natural surroundings. During this time they also can get to know more about you through a relaxed, informal conversation. Subtle information the photographer is gathering includes things like whether you are shy or outgoing, bold or reserved, a minimalist, or into object. When the time comes for the photo shoot, he or she will work with these traits to capture your personality in the portrait.
Each expectant mother is a unique individual. Some women desire a portrait that captures the shape of her pregnant silhouette. Other women prefer to be fully clothed.

Whatever your vision for your maternity portrait is, there is likely to be a photographer to suit your needs.
