The concept of maternity photoshoots became popular in the 1990s. The first-ever maternity photoshoot was for a Hollywood magazine cover. It included a woman’s journey into motherhood.
A few such iconic covers helped to bring in a sea of change in the way how pregnancies were viewed. And with this, began the new trend of getting photoshot during pregnancy.
Of course, pregnancy is one of the most exciting phases of life for any mother. And capturing these moments of changes in the body can be heart-melting.
That being said, not all mothers-to-be want to get photographed in the usual “hands over belly bump” pose. You must have faced it, and we know it too, your customers must be asking for new innovations.
Worry not! We’ve got a lot of stuff to inspire you for your next maternity photoshoot session.
Get Out And Get Loud!
You must have been clicking photographs for newlyweds and honeymoon couples in exotic locations. Well, then you must also know how location and backdrop can enhance the photoshoot.
Not only does it bring about a sense of freedom but also lets the subjects adapt to the mood.
You can take up beach sessions or head to the mountains. But make sure that you do it in the lap of mother nature. Now that’s called being loud about the excitement of becoming a mother. Surely, the purpose of a maternity photo shoot is to bring out this feeling and being able to show it through the photographs.
Compliment With New Goodies
Photography professionals are taking the competition notches high. While some are offering free albums, others are offering free copies to the customers.
Pick up this idea and include it in your photography business. For example, A baby connection Sacramento photoshoot company is offering free 3-D ultrasound on every booking. Well, this is surely an innovative way to attract more customers.
You can also offer such or more goodies to your customers. And know that, this trend is becoming a huge rage in the industry. Perhaps, skipping on this might set you a step back in the competition.
Keep It Discreet But Sensual
Another trend that’s raking the charts is Boudoir photography. Long gone are the days when to-be-married couples sought personalized sensual photographic sessions. Today, expecting mothers are also taking a keen interest in this style of photography.
Breaking the stigma and keeping a subtle sensuality to your photoshoots can be a great opportunity to showcase your talent. Besides, you can also call for the husbands to participate in this particular photography session.
Not only the mothers-to-be but also the fathers-to-be would wish to celebrate their parenthood. But, when you choose this form of photography make sure that you don’t overdo things. The idea is to keep it sensual but discreetly.
Though the year 2020 was not as expected, photographers and the models have taken it up to themselves and have come up with some of the most unique ideas this year. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some more innovations later this year.
