Krystal’s lifestyle maternity photo shoot was held at her adorable vintage home in Berlin, NJ on a beautiful February day. Pregnancy photography is a special time to showcase this amazing little baby that is growing inside of you. I would love to have every stick of her furniture in her South Jersey house moved to mine. I would probably not ever have to buy another photography prop ever again! It was like a wonderland for a photographer. Krystal makes an incredibly beautiful pregnant woman, she practically glows. I feel so privileged I was invited into their home to share in their joy of awaiting for their arrival!
One of the most important and definitely rewarding parts of being a photographer is having loyal clients. Krystal’s family is the best! Usually I only get to capture Krystal’s son, Glenn, for his birthday photos. This time I was able to get the entire family behind the camera and it was an amazing experience. This was my first maternity photo shoot. It was amazing and completely loved it.
Maternity photos not only get to capture your growing belly and pregnancy glow. Pregnancy photography sessions are usually taken at 32- 34 weeks. They capture all the love in your family for the baby growing in your belly. The reason I like to do them before 35 weeks is the possibility that the newborn may make his/ her appearance before your session arrives. We don’t want to miss out on the opportunity of capturing this important milestone.
As in the case of Krystal, their little one decided to arrive two weeks early and she didn’t even have time to choose her maternity pictures before we took his newborn pictures. Lifestyle sessions in your home can take place anytime of day in a well lite room. I try in all cases for natural light when possible. With this session though it was a bit cloudy outside and I needed to use a bit of off camera flash for extra light. If you would like an outdoor location, I like to take them around sunset or sunrise just like my other photo shoots as the light is most pleasing and we could capture some amazing skies with your photos.
Glenn is seriously going to be the best brother ever. He loves to kiss his mama’s tummy and can’t wait until his little brother is born. He is also a natural model, he never shys away from the camera. We’re friends, lol!
