Maternity Photoshoot with Emmylou Kelly

June 26, 2015 0

Being pregnant is so precious and your body changes so much in such a short space of time, that I think a maternity photoshoot is the perfect way to capture that special journey.

If you read my other blog HollyGoesLightly, then you’ll know I’m into photography and when I fell pregnant, I knew that I’d want to have some photos to look back on. In steps Emmylou Kelly – an incredibly talented Lifestyle Photographer, based in Manchester.

I met Emmylou about a year ago and we instantly hit it off. You know when you meet someone and you just click and are totally on the same wavelength? Being a mum herself, I knew instantly that she’d be the best person for the job of photographing me and my bump, in my home.

I wanted to capture the special time of being pregnant, in a relaxed way, in the comfort of my own bedroom and Emmylou’s style and approach made for a fun and comfortable shoot. We tried a few different outfits and I attempted to manoeuvre myself (and my bump) into a number of comfortable positions. We used natural light and soft fabrics and I’m so happy with the results. The soft focus makes for a dream-like feel and I know I’ll look back on these photos fondly for years to come.

At this stage, I’m 32 weeks pregnant.
