Some moments in life need to be captured in the most perfect way and my growing baby belly is definitely one of those kind of moments. So for the first time ever I planned a maternity photoshoot, and to make sure everything went smoothly I planned it like a little military mission. Only one chance to do this right, right. Luckily this is what I do best so I started as I always do, seeking inspiration on Pinterest and the rest of internet. Soon I found what I was looking for. Being at ease is very important on a project like this so I asked one of my trusted photographer’s to help me. Together we searched for the perfect location with the best light and background. Off course I did the styling myself, although a lot of stuff I pulled in wasn’t even used in the end, the belly got all the attention haha. To keep things natural and personal I also choose to do my own hair and make-up. Because we wanted to use the natural sunlight we were a bit depending on the weather to cooperate that day. Luckily the weather gods were on our side that day, the sun was shining all morning, giving us exactly the light we needed.
In the end I’m so happy with the results. It’s probably the most intimate and personal shoot I’ve ever done, perfectly capturing the beautiful phase of life I’m blessed to be in right now.
