Maternity Family Photo Shoot, North Berwick
I was asked to take photos for a maternity family photo shoot in North Berwick. This lovely family already have one daughter and were expecting another wee one soon. The weather outside was nice and sunny which added to the bright, light feel during this indoor session.
The couple's daughter was the life and soul of the party. Bright, friendly and outgoing she shone in each of the photos she is in.
It will be interesting to see how this little ray of sunshine reacts to the new addition when they arrive. Her place as centre of the family will now have to be shared.
Asking their daughter to stand between them, this brought her in line with her Dad's head. This now held fascination - as probably a novel experience. She said it was nice and soft.
Now for some snugly shots between Mum and daughter. I was told that the baby has mixed feelings towards big Sis already. Once baby kicked her from inside the womb when she snuggled up to Mum.
The following photo looks posed, but wasn't directed at all. This pose was naturally struck and turned out to be perfect for a portrait.
The family were posing in the new baby's room, which was still a relatively clear space. This proved excellent for photos - giving a nice blank canvas to use behind them.
Now time for a close-up of the bump itself. Very soon it will be gone again and it is good to have a nice record of the pregnancy in this way.
For a different feel I moved the couple closer to the window and used natural light for a few photos.
It was at this point that a certain little person started to get restless and wanted to play. Time for a tussle with her Mummy and then she left the photo shoot.
Time for Mum and Dad to have a few more photos together.
Time for a peek-a-boo style shot of the baby bump peeking from behind a wall. This shot just shows how large the bump is at this latter stage of pregnancy.
Although the family dog didn't take a formal part of the photos, as a valued family member he definitely deserved his moment also in front of the camera.
I am a Glasgow-based family photographer and I am a 'mobile' photographer - which means that I come to you to take the photos. This allows you to show off home and hearth if you wish, or we can find an uncluttered corner for photos instead. I mostly shoot maternity, baby and family photography sessions.
