1. Make Use Of Natural Elements
When you are posing just mom in the photos, making use of natural elements is such a great way to include a unique background, natural light and the beautiful colors of nature. Find a rustic barn to use as a great backdrop, or a colorful field of wildflowers. Using the flare of the sun in some of the photos can also give a unique perspective.
2. Use A Prop
Using props is a great way to make the session a little more romantic or give it that special touch. One way that this guide discusses is using a quilt and having the mom-to-be or her and her spouse laying together on the blanket makes for such a romantic yet sweet photo. It makes it very fitting for the mood of the session.
A great tip would be to ask the couple you are photographing if they have a special blanket or quilt that is special to them that they would like to use.... that will make the photos even more meaningful.
