As a professional photographer in Long Island, nothing makes me feel more joy then photographing a beautiful maternity shoot. Being able to capture the love of expecting parents is a beautiful thing.
This image is from a recent maternity shoot of John & Alina Ghotti. We choose Planting fields in Long Island, for their shoot because of the grounds.
I love how the trees make for the perfect background. I am always looking for a background that is non distracting, this will allow the viewer to focus on the expecting parents and the mothers belly, than the background.
When choosing a location for your maternity shoot you want to make sure that the location you have chosen has many options for backgrounds.
I love light and airy maternity photos, it gives each image a creative touch, and it almost looks like in studio beauty lighting.
After this image was captured, we took our time walked around the park, changing outfits and poses.
Alina's dress complimented her baby bump perfectly. Often times our expectant mothers will ask us, "what should we wear on our maternity photoshoot" While each client's expectations for their images are different, I always tell them to wear something that will show off your belly. Sun dresses are my go to for outfits, they allow you to be comfortable while allowing us to photograph your baby bump.
