So…I’m ending my year with a blog post, bulging at the seams! I’m not sure how many people know that I actually started my photography career shooting bellies and babies exclusively, when I was living back in the Philippines. At first, it was difficult to convince the conservative Filipina to bare their pregnant belly but eventually, the idea of it caught on and I was able to build a good maternity photography market. One thing I’ve always regretted was not having my own maternity photo done when my first son was born.
Now, that I’m 37 weeks prego with baby #2 and almost ready to pop – my husband turned the cameras on me and shot my maternity photo! My husband was so very patient with me, as I was the WORSE model in the world – overthinking each shot and criticizing his lighting, composition and angles. But I think he did a terrific job and can definitely start doing more shooting for the family business. Anyway, please share your comments to encourage him in his first ever maternity shoot, as we share the best photos from the pictorial. Here I am, now practicing what I preach: that there’s nothing more beautiful than a pregnant belly!
Happy New Year everybody!
