There are many varieties of props, which can be utilized for maternity portraits. You can utilize dolls, hats, balls, teddy bears, the list is endless. You only need to utilize your imagination in creating maternity portraits. Keep in mind that these particular types of props should be kept small. If you have select a professional studio, such as DeLanda Licata Photography Studio & Gallery in Boulder, Colorado, then the sky is the limit and you can provide a wide array of props for your maternity portraits.

DeLanda Licata Photography Studio & Gallery offers pregnancy photography sessions with your privacy in mind. I also offer indoor as well as outdoor settings. If you are uncomfortable with going to my studio in Boulder, Colorado, you can always opt to have the pregnancy photography session performed within the safe confines of your own home.

We will discuss the overall style of pictures you want. Do you want to wear your clothes during the photo shoot? Do you want to show your skin during the photo shoot? Is someone else going to be in the pregnancy photography session with you such as the father of your child or a beloved family member?
If you want someone else to be present in your pregnancy photography session, both of you must choose clothing that will not take away from the photo shoot. Keep in mind that your stomach with your unborn child cradled inside is the main subject of the photo shoot therefore, jewelry or bright objects should be left off until the maternity photo shoot is over.

Maternity portraits are about emotions; so I will make sure to capture the emotions of the mother in the maternity portrait and I will encourage that emotion in enhancing the maternity portraits while allowing the creativeness of not only my professional skills to shine through but the mothers as well.

Keep in mind that these portraits are going to be pregnancy portraits so you are allowed to bring some items with you, which you have purchased, for your unborn child. These are very cute props, which can be added into the photo shoot. As a professional maternity photographer in Boulder, CO, I will have some items present at the photo shoot if you do not have your own items or if you merely forgot them.

You might want to consider including siblings into the pregnancy photography session. This is sure to begin the bond between your child and the unborn child. As your maternity photographer I welcome such an endearing portrait. Forget routine posing during the pregnancy photography session, whatever works for you and your family I as your maternity photographer will encourage such confident portraits.

Your hands will be a focus of the photo shoot so make sure you give yourself a manicure or pay for a professional manicure. Do not forget your toes in preparing for this special day. Some items to remember to bring are brushes or combs as well as changes of clothes. Lip moisturizer will be a great addition to your face during the photo shoot.

When searching for creative ideas for props in creating maternity portraits, look at maternity portraits in mail order catalogs or speak with other moms who have had professional baby photography portraits, and they will be very happy to advise you on creative props in creating maternity portraits.

The Complete Organic Pregnancy
 

Product Description
While being pregnant is thrilling, the responsibility of a growing baby can provoke anxiety about what is and isn’t safe. In The Complete Organic Pregnancy, Deirdre Dolan and Alexandra Zissu address how you can minimize your exposure to the invisible toxins that surround us—in everything from food, cleaning products, and cosmetics to furniture, rugs, air, and water. Step by step, they tell you where dangerous chemicals are lurking, why it’s so important to avoid them when pregnant, and what you can do before, during, and after your pregnancy to protect your child.

In this exhaustively researched book, the authors (calmly) talk parents-to-be through everything from the safest laundry detergent to which crib mattresses contain toxic flame retardants. You’ll find out how to choose the right face cream, plastic water bottles, household cleaners, types of fish, and much more—all with an eye toward keeping you and your baby safe and healthy.

The Complete Organic Pregnancy also features a collection of personal diaries from well-known writers and organophiles, including Barbara Kingsolver and Marion Nestle, as well as recipes from organic chefs. Required reading for anyone heading into this exciting stage of life, The Complete Organic Pregnancy is your chance to make a difference for your children, even before they’re born.

I photographed Angela’s maternity session in my Boulder studio yesterday and I couldn’t wait to post a few “sneak peeks”! She makes being a photographer easy! We had fun dressing her in all the clothes provided by Becoming Mothers for the images that will be submitted for the cover of Expetant Mother’s. Although, the cover image isn’t in the sneak peeks, but you can see it when it comes out in June!!! I’ll definitely post it in June!

I’m calling this image “HOT MAMA”. I think the name says it all!
