Planning for a maternity photo session can be stressful, especially when its your second baby! Not only do you have to be concerned with you and your hubby’s outfits, but also your little one’s outfit and keeping her entertained throughout the session! I give so much props to all of my mommy clients out there who juggle the perfect balance between trying to get great photos and keeping their littles happy while taking photos.
And when I met Jessica and her family for her maternity session, my immediate thought was “She is a super mom!” I was so impressed with how put together and calm she was when they arrived at the session – I honestly thought to myself, “I wonder if I’ll have my shit together like her when I’m a mom!” Not only was the entire family dressed to perfection, including little Ali, but Jessica planned ahead and not only brought an iPad with games to keep Ali entertained, but she also brought her stroller!!! Okay, this may seem like I’m freaking out over nothing, but in all honesty, Jessica was my FIRST client who ever brought a stroller to one of my family sessions. Can you believe it?! Having the stroller at the session gave us so much freedom when it came to posing and getting different shots. I was able to get photos of the entire family, give Ali a little break in her stroller when she needed it, and then get some intimate photos of just mom and dad alone! It was amazing!!! At most of my family sessions, the parents are so busy trying to keep the little one(s) entertained and happy that we aren’t able to get photos of just them two alone, and that always makes me so sad.
So, thanks to Jessica, I have found a simple answer to this overlooked problem, bring a stroller to your session!!! Trust me it will be so worth it!!
