Maternity Portrait Photographer Orlando
Professional Maternity Photography
Karen Maugans ~ Greenleaf Photo Studio
Whether you’re expecting your first baby or you’re already an experienced parent, pregnancy is a miraculous time for you and your family.
Maternity photography is a rapidly growing segment of professional portraiture. Not long ago, women hid their baby bump for as long as possible into their pregnancy. Revealing and shape-showing maternity clothes did not exist. God forbid that a woman should be viewed as “alluring” while carrying a baby! Things have changed, thank goodness, and women are taking more pride in their growing bellies than ever before. More pride means wanting to document this amazing time in their life with professional maternity photography.
A maternity photographer must be especially sensitive to her client’s feelings toward her body. Every pregnant woman has her own preferences for what her maternity photos should look like, and it is the photographer’s responsibility to style, light and capture exactly what her client envisions. Some women prefer to show the shape of their bodies through maternity clothes that conceal most of her shape. Others boldly want to do a version of the famous 1991 Demi Moore Vanity Fair Magazine cover (total nudity with just her hands and body positioning covering what needs to be covered). Most maternity clients request portraits that fall somewhere in the mid-range of this spectrum.
Karen Maugans has many years of experience photographing pregnant women all along the range of maternity portraiture. She is very comfortable photographing all levels of maternity portraiture. Karen has been in your shoes and understands that with the gain of “baby weight” there is additional weight in your arms, face, legs and back. All the areas that you would not expect to have additional weight while pregnant! She knows how it feels to have no part of your body its usual size. Karen is very sensitive to what you want to show in your photos and what should be well hidden. You can trust Karen to give you the photos you envision with the most flattering lighting and shadows (your new best friend!) so you will feel as beautiful as you happy as you are with the soon arrival of your new baby.
