At the beginning of a session, I always prep my mommas-to-be with the same words, "I know this feels awkward, but trust me that it will photograph beautifully." I ask moms and dads and kiddos to do some pretty funny feeling movements during our sessions, but it's only because we don't walk around everyday looking camera-ready. Unless you're Gigi Hadid.
But that doesn't mean you can't get your Gigi on during your moment! So I will request different postures than your everyday, a different walk to make it more runway appropriate, and a few twirls here and there because why not. You're wearing a gorgeous dress and rocking that pregnant body and it will be celebrated if I have anything to do with it.
So when I ask you do something that feels awkward while I'm photographing you, just go with it. Because you'll get images like this gorgeous soon-to-be mom of two!
