Maternity shoots have become very common in these times, they are a great way for a mother and her partner to remember the once in a lifetime experience of the miracle that is pregnancy.
Maternity photography in Dubai has many creative elements for both the photographer and his/her clients. From photography angles, styles, and props many elements can be exploited to achieve unique and memorable pictures.
The best photographers in the UAE aim to bring out elegance and style in their images. For this reason, maternity photographers in Dubai are keen to notice the environment, the time of day, and the props available to make the photo shoot a success.
To achieve great photography, here are some things a maternity photographer would consider:
Like any other kind of photography, a photographer must visit the location of the photoshoot ahead of the shoot. In this case, the photographer will be looking to see the best locations for the shoot, the best times for each location to be able to take advantage of natural light, shadows, and reflections. A photographer will also be able to know the equipment he/she needs for the specific shoot. Locations we recommend for maternity photoshoots in Dubai are; The secret beach, Bluewater Island, La Mer, and the Desert.
Choosing the right outfits
This plays a major role in the outlook of the image. An expectant woman often experiences swelling on her body. It is therefore important that a photographer advises the client on clothing that will flatter their body without hiding the pregnancy. The color of the outfit should complement the skin of the subject and accentuate their body shape. A client could choose to show some skin, could be the legs, shoulders, neck, or arms. This will divert attention from the swollen parts of the body and complement the baby bump well. Even with all this in mind, authenticity must be maintained in the shoot.
Using appropriate props
Props make the photographs colorful. The use of letter blocks spelling out the unborn baby's name, or tiny shoes or a gender reveal cake adds a story to the photographs. These pictures make beautiful portraits for the nursery, it serves as a reminder to the new parents to celebrate the newborn when they finally come.
