Maternity Photoshoot

Comments

I'll be writing a 4 piece series with Philips Avent in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week in August.

This is my first piece: Pre-preparation before Aidan arrived home.

While I was pregnant, I did a lot of research. I read books, attended plenty of parenting seminars and even undergo a 5 weeks course to prepare myself for childbirth and taking care of Aidan.

As some of you guys may know, I really love documenting my experiences in pictures and of course by blogging!

From my pre wedding shoot to wedding planning to weight loss to my Europe honeymoon and the lovely Maldives experience, I always make a point to take as many pictures as possible so as to be able to look back fondly at the experience.

Needless to say, this also applies for my pregnancy. I haven't been as religious as other mothers by taking progress pictures but I try as much to take pictures and videos.

From the end of the first trimester, I was discussing with Skai aka c(hubby) about having a maternity shoot to capture the bump pictures alongside the adorable newborn pictures.

Maternity shoots are a great way to not only appreciate the beauty of the bump, the pregnancy in the last few stages and also for both husband and wife to take pictures together! Personally I actually took some pictures in my new home but of course the pictures captured are just of myself and aren't professionally taken. Thus I decided to engage Ashley Low of Ashley Low Photography to help these precious moments of Skai and I.

To be honest, I wouldn't feel as comfy with a male photographer (unless it's my hubby :p) taking pictures of me in erm, various stages of undress so I was pleased to have found Ashley.

Ashley sent a list of things for me to prepare. From when I should photograph my bump to outfits to items provided, the guidelines are really in-depth! Discussed with Skai and I picked some simple outfits for him. For myself, as I have already seen some of Ashley's maternity pictures and really liked the draped clothes, I only brought my own casual wear.

You can always bring your own gowns, lingeries if you like. However Ashley Low's studio is well provided with ample fabrics, maternity gowns, outfits and props.
