I’ll admit – toddlers are my favorite age, but they are usually very difficult to photograph. They are like little emotional tornados creating chaos everywhere they go. But this soon-to-be big brother I photographed for a pregnancy announcement in Gilbert, Arizona was the perfect model! He sat (mostly) still and gave me a big cheesy grin at the camera when asked.
Ok, so he did crumple up his baby brother’s ultrasound picture into a ball when we asked him to hold it, but we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say he didn’t know what he was doing. 😉
“Why is everyone so excited about this piece of paper??”
As a birth photographer, pregnancy announcement photoshoots just come with the territory, and I love being able to give the family a fun way to tell their friends and family the news! I offer complimentary pregnancy announcement photoshoots to any of my birth clients who book with me early in their pregnancy.
Pregnancy announcement shoots are not like a regular session where you spend a lot of time planning out outfits, locations, and poses for an hour or longer shoot. Simply show up to a local park with an ultrasound picture (if you have one). This session at the Riparian Reserve in Gilbert, Arizona was about 15 minutes from start to finish – super quick, easy, and stress-free! Of course, if you want to spend more time planning out an extravagant announcement shoot, that is totally ok too, but it doesn’t need to be if that’s not your style.
