This probably still seems strange to a lot of people… but times have changed and maternity photos are just another way to document a special and exciting time in our lives. Capturing the special moments when you are expecting and in the first days of the baby’s life leaves you with photos that you will cherish your whole life. Below are some reasons why you must think of capturing these special times.
Proficient psychologists hold that most of the pregnant women feel insecure about their general look and figure when pregnant. As the bellies become larger and they add extra weight, they tend to feel unhappy and uglier.
Even if you don’t always feel beautiful (achy feet, sore back, tired legs, stretch marks), just think of all the things going on inside your bodies! You have created a living being who is growing and being nourished inside of you.
Maternity photography is one of the options of counteracting such feelings and ultimately improving the self-esteem of the individuals. This is an art that stresses on how beautiful pregnancy is.
This kind of photos are a way for us to celebrate the baby we’re about to meet, to celebrate our love for each other, and to celebrate the strength of our incredible bodies.
This is one sure way of celebrating the new addition to the family members. Bearing children is considered a form of blessing. Capturing these maternity images is one of the simple and unique ways of celebrating it. It will always remind parents, particularly the mothers, of the happy times and hardships felt when waiting for the baby to arrive finally.
When, many parents have the photos with their kids; they feel closer to their mother. Additionally, the photographs help in teaching the children the process of birthing. It is proven that the maternity photos will deliver soothing emotions to mothers during the pregnancy phases.
Pregnancy is an experience that happens once in a lifetime. There is no better way of reminiscing this incredible moment that having professional photos taken. The picture can be enjoyed or shared with your loved members, particularly when the child ages and eventually grow.
Take your significant other sailing or surfing or pretend you will be just doing usual stuff in a beautiful place like Cabo San Lucas beach… and pop the question “Will you marry me?”
We can’t think of anything better than being in our favorite element (salt water cures all!) This is a perfectly intimate and memorable way to pop the question, more exciting if you have a photographer to get all the reactions in a portrait.
Whether or not you and your partner are pro-scuba divers or snorkelers, or body builders like these two lovely couples… we will ride along with your plan to get your ultimate desired YES!
His girlfriend thought we were just doing some usual photoshoot of the two of them to come up with materials to promote body building. Our plan was to start with pictures up around the Cabo San Lucas beach as it’s so mesmerizing, then closer to sunset I would tell them to walk down the beach together and that is when he would pop the question. I followed the two down the beach for a good while, I was getting a bit worried if he was going to do it. He said later he was looking for a dry spot on the beach to get down on one knee. I posted a lot of shots of the proposal below. You can tell she was genuinely shocked and then elated by the surprise.
Definitely the surprise proposal was successful as she answered him with a YES!
A lot of times, less is more. Who says you need to have the most extravagant set-up? When it comes to proposals, we’d like to think that as long as you have a ring, the loving words speak for themselves. Surprise your partner by casually talking about your relationship history… What do you love about your relationship or just even being yourselves and just do the unexpected at that moment, right away!
When the time is right like the sunset sky is giving that romantic vibe, and you are ready with that ring in your pocket… get on one knee and propose. And what we can do is shoot the memorable moment of your lives starting together. You will be able to look at these moments together laughing and giggling like it just happened yesterday.
I don’t know about you, but I take more pictures than ever now that cameras and smartphones have made photography so much easier to happen. I used to center the time I spent on photos—stopping to snap them, putting them into albums. Now I realize the important role they play in a happy life… in looking back to memories visually.
I’ve noticed that happy families tend to display large numbers of photos. In my bedroom, a long shelf is crowded with pictures of my husband and kids, and I love to look at them while I’m getting dressed. (The only challenge is that I’m running out of wall and shelf space!)
Photos tilt your memories toward the good experiences you’ve had, simply because you’re more likely to take photos of joyful times. That’s important, because due to a phenomenon known as “negativity bias,” it’s easier to recall bad times than good ones. Having snapshots of the latter keeps them vivid in our minds.
When you see something beautiful, it’s natural to feel the pride to share it with others. Having photos of things, you love gives you the satisfaction of doing that. On Pinterest, I love to collect and share pictures of fanciful tree houses and whimsical chandeliers. I get the joy that comes from looking at these things without having to own them (or buy them, for that matter)—and the fun of showing them to friends with just a few clicks.
Taking photos fosters creativity. Taking beautiful shots of images, and the need to find each day’s photo keeps you engaged and connected with the world in a creative way. I love the daily hunt for something striking to photograph. It’s a quick, easy way to infuse my daily routine with a creative spirit.
I like to remind myself how easy it is to forget. I’m always trying to figure out ways to hold on to memories. One thing I do is keep a daily one-sentence journal. I don’t have the time or energy to write much every day, but I can manage to jot down one sentence. Photographs are another easy way to record little moments that are precious but easily forgotten.
Don’t just take photos of special occasions—take photos of everyday life. These can be simple milestones but something that will be treasured by generation to generation. That’s what will interest you later.
Capturing a moment in time isn’t just about securing a memory—it can help you appreciate your life more every day.

When you ask people what possessions they would rescue from their burning house, one of the most frequent answers is the photograph album or a computer with their digital images. When in panic mode it’s interesting that we would probably grab photos rather than valuable jewelry. This impulse to save our recorded memories is a powerful force which tells us much about the role of photography in our lives and our constant desire to distil our most precious moments into images.
We preserve the important events and people in our lives. The ceremonies of birth and birthdays, marriages and anniversaries, holidays and new houses are all recorded because they matter. Photographs are our personal story, a timeline of our lives filled with faces and places that we love. They are our story, which we can share with others. The hundreds of images come together to form a narrative of our lives.
A couple of generations later it might surface among old papers in an attic and someone would search for granddad among the fresh young faces. Photographs matter because they freeze moments of our lives which pass unremarkably and which seem to have little importance to us at the time. The significance, however, may be for others who search for the person we once were or the places we once knew. They can be small pieces of a jigsaw that complete the larger picture of our lives.
Images are much more than a simple record. Photography speaks to the best and most generous part of our human nature – the desire to share what we find beautiful and interesting with others. Millions of people sharing their personal, passionate and sometimes quirky take on the world around them. Our images can involve a world of strangers in our life. How powerful is that?
Photography allows us to express ourselves through an art form. We notice a beautiful landscape or an old man’s lined face and we want to capture it. Each of us will have a different reason to do so but, essentially, we want to create something. However humdrum our nine-to-five lives may be, the creation of an image makes us an artist. It feels good.
Our images can express joy and sorrow, wonder and sympathy.
Photographs can grab our attention and speak directly to our emotions.
Photography, at its best, is a powerful language which speaks to our emotions. It allows us to tell our story and show others our framing of the world around us.
