Tag Archives: Ashley Low Maternity Photoshoot

Comments

As some of you guys may know, I did my recent maternity shoot with Ashley Low Photography and basically almost all of my family shoots with her!

She did such an awesome job with Aidan's newborn photoshoot that it's a no-brainer that I would return to her!

Do check out pics of Aidan's shoot here! 

Prior to the shoot

We discussed about themes and concepts. Questions posed to me were:

- Do you have any colour preferences like “neutral”, “pastels only”, “bright” or you are fine with any colour choice?
- Do you like usage of flowers, floral themes?
- We have the following set ups: basket/fabric ; beanbags ; themes - do you have preference over any kind of set ups?

I also viewed their website to have a sense of what types of set ups were available. Back then, for Aidan's shoot, I wanted colourful. For Davina, I wanted more neutral and girly colours. I also opted for more beanbags and baskets/fabrics as compared to concept themes.

Ashley's team also shared with us to consider neutral coloured outfits for our family shoot and to avoid big logos etc. Like with Aidan's, we decided to go with all white again!

They also sent across the location map for our easy reference.

On the day itself

Ashley has shifted studio to a stone's throw away from her previous one. The new studio is bigger and more comfy!

There was a huge bunch of props and also an area for kids to have fun, which Aidan definitely did! He had so much fun with all of the toys!

I was extremely excited when I walked in as I saw all of the themes prepared for me.

I soon sat back and just let Ashley and her team to work her magic. She took care of outfit changes, to coaxing Davina to even changing her diaper when Davina soiled it! Here are some behind the scenes pics I sneakily took of Ashley and team!

We managed to finish the photoshoot within 1.5 hours despite having to stop for 2 times, to breastfeed and also having to coax a temperamental Aidan who did not want to take pics and wanted to continue playing LOL.

All I can say is... Ashley really knows how to coax kids! She got Aidan smiling in no time!

Ashley Low Photography should be no stranger to many of you. I worked with Ashley for my previous maternity shoot for #1 and various other sessions before in the last two years! Here's a recap:

Just like with Aidan, I wanted to capture photos of my beautiful bump when pregnant with Davina (aka #2) but I wanted something different as compared with Aidan!

Ashley and I discussed about a few different scenarios and concept and we decided to go for an outdoor photoshoot this time as we did an indoor shoot when I was pregnant with Aidan.

I showed some pictures from Pinterest as reference to Ashley and we both concluded that I preferred florals and a more girly look for this shoot. While Ashley offered a great variety of outfits to choose from, I wanted to search for different styles of clothings for the shoot. Showed them to Ashley and we shortlisted three outfits and decided on going to Botanical Gardens for our shoot!

I also mentioned to Ashley that while this was  a maternity shoot, I would prefer if we can skew it to more of a family shoot. I wanted both Aidan and Skai to be the main stars of the shoot too.

Here's the end results! I love the pics! Ashley really charmed Aidan too because he was so cooperative and so happy during the shoot.

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.

Before the photoshoot

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.
