Maternity Photoshoot with Emmylou Kelly

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. maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 14 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 12 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 3 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 2 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 15 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 13 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 4 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 11 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 9 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant window baby bump dribbleblog 6 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 5 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 8 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 8   maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 7 maternity photoshoot emmylou kelly pregnant baby bump dribbleblog 6   I'm planning another shoot soon with my hubby, as he's part of this special journey too of course!

Having a memento of your pregnancy and baby-bump is so important to many mums-to-be, including me. Of course we all take bump-selfies (or "bumpies") throughout our pregnancy to track our ever-increasing tummy, but sometimes it's nice to have some professional shots taken too. If you're nifty with a camera and have a decent one (or are super with your mobile phone), get yourself into some good natural light (by a large window is often the best), pop your camera on a tripod and get snapping. Or, like me, nag your other-half into taking some of you instead.¬† (more…)
