As any photographer will tell you, you never stop learning! This year alone I have 3 training workshops booked to help me improve my photography. Sometimes those little “aha” moments can take your photos to a whole new level. Last week I completed the online Maternity Retreat by the Milky Way. It was a fantastic collaboration of the best pregnancy photographers from all over the globe who came together to teach on different topics such as lighting, pricing, using fabrics, posing for couples and even milk baths (which I’ve yet to try!). This is the third workshop I’ve done with the Milky Way and it is so great to have the opportunity to ‘pick the brains’ (as my Dad would say!) of the most talented and experienced photographers in their field.
(As a side note, if you’re a photographer and are looking for some amazing online workshops to help improve your work, look no further than the Milky Way courses! There is something for everyone)
As timing would have it, I had a beautiful maternity client booked in only a few days after completing the course so it was a wonderful opportunity for me to try some new things and techniques! This lovely lady is due any day now and I am so so excited to meet her beautiful baby for his newborn session in the coming few weeks.
Here are a few of my favourite images that I captured for her session:
Maternity photography is a beautiful way to capture a very special time in a woman’s life. We may not always feel glamorous but our bodies are AMAZING!
My mini maternity photo sessions are an add on to my newborn sessions. For more information, please check out my maternity session page.
