10 Jul Session Share: From Maternity to Newborn!
Inspiration: My clients wanted to have some casual maternity photos as a memory so we had the session at their home. Mom is also a very energetic person who still runs even during pregnancy and they both love the countryside so much. They brought us to the countryside where they pass by everyday and we were so impressed with this powerful tree right next to where they live. We thus requested mom to return to the same spot for their newborn session.
Favorite Element: I love the huge tree which signifies life. This is also the place where the family passes by everyday so it means so much to them!
Biggest Challenge: The baby was only 7 day old and mom was so weary, so we had to finish the outdoor shot within 2 minutes time. All poses were rehearsed at their home before we went outside.
What the Client Said: They love the pictures so much and it definitely will bring back memories if they were to return to their homeland in the future.
Photographers’ Final Words: I hope every mom-to-be can have a set of maternity pictures that is unique and speaks to who they are. I will always try to meet with my clients in advance and understand more of who they are and what fits them. It made sense to me to have an outdoor session for this couple as they simply love the countryside! Here in Hong Kong, the weather is so humid and hot and outdoor newborn sessions are just impossible. Despite the humid weather, I was truly grateful that these parents were so willing to have a few outdoor pictures for their 7 day old newborn!
