Maternity Safety

 The mother photographed above had complications with her pregnancy so we chose a dress that could cover her IV and Photographed her early in case she went into preterm labor.

Do not make the mistake of hiring a photographer to photograph you without knowing these few things. Some of these may seem pretty obvious but there are photographers out there that do not consider these as potential risks because of their inexperience.

First make sure they are experienced and trained in techniques that ensure the safety of you and your new born. Make sure there is a plan in place if the posing or conditions of your shoot cause you to go into preterm labor. Some of the poses require that you move in a way that is not "normal" for you. These sessions take time and effort you may not be up to. I take a brief history of my clients to help me prepare them for their session. High risk pregnancies may mean that we need to take it easy.

Compositing

There are some really amazing imagery out on the internet. Sometimes, in order to create images like that it is necessary to digitally manipulate images. This is called compositing. Your photographer should never have you wearing flowing dresses deep in fast flowing water. Ever! The images of mom submerged in a dress should be composited. Fast flowing currents could cause you to get caught up and is a risk for drowning.
