It is an all too familiar Hollywood trend of pregnant women showcasing themselves in the form of a portrait. Demi Moore started the tradition when she appeared nude and pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair and ever since celebrities – Christina Aguilera, Monica Bellucci, Eva Herzigova, Britney Spears and Heidi Klum – have been trying to emulate that iconic photo. The trend has now stemmed beyond the world of glitz and glamour, as pregnant women all over are looking to capture the most beautiful time of their lives.
Greg Lord Studio does phenomenal work in capturing the beauty of pregnancy and the purest form of love.
Recreating this exact moment in an expectant mother's life is impossible, which is why it is so important to get the perfect picture the first time. There is no need to feel uncomfortable with this form of photography; with the right photographer and atmosphere this can be a very enjoyable experience for a woman and soon-to-be mother.
The right photographer knows how to use comfortable poses, artful lighting, complimentary fabrics and careful retouching so that the end result is natural and beautiful. A well-taken maternity photo can truly flatter the unique form of the pregnant body and instills a sense of wonder and appreciation in the woman and her partner.
The best time to take a maternity photo is in the late second or early third trimester, when you are still comfortable and are clearly showing. Book your appointment weeks in advance so you are sure to have the most convenient time. Dress in your favorite maternity outfit that will allow you to move freely into different poses.
A maternity photograph will to showcase the most personal side of your self and you may be nervous about revealing those minor imperfections. Professional quality digital retouching will help remove those unflattering marks that you didn't have prepregnancy.
Greg Lord Studio has designed an environment where women can feel gorgeous and at ease when most feel vulnerable. Be photographed with your child-to-be for a keepsake that's as precious as your child itself.
