Maya | Seattle Newborn Photographer
I LOVE when clients book me as both their Seattle newborn photographer AND their maternity photographer. A lot of people opt out of the maternity session (trust me, I totally get it. I would have pried a camera out of someone’s hands faster than you can say “extra-thick milkshake). The maternity session does have a purpose, though. Apart from capturing those fleeting, beautiful, hip-wrenching, back-aching moments, it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better.
You see, when you hire me as your Seattle newborn photographer, you are putting an incredible amount of trust in me. You are trusting me to not only preserve memories and traits that will literally be gone in weeks, but to care for your babies as if they were my own. When you have been thinking and praying and wishing for that baby for months or years, that’s an incredible amount of trust.
Through the maternity session, we have the opportunity to get to know each other a bit more, and establish trust. This allows moms and dads the opportunity to rest easy during their newborn session knowing that I’ve got everything under control. In my experience, parents who opted for a maternity session come to my Tacoma newborn photography studio much more relaxed and at ease. Since we all know relaxed parents make for relaxed babies, maternity mamas tend to have babies with bigger galleries packed full of variety.
As you’ll notice, Miss Maya had TONS of different set ups (we had four that aren’t even blogged!). I attribute this to mama following the Sleepy Baby prep guide AND to the fact that her parents and I bonded so well during their maternity session! They came relaxed, calm, and ready to have a short break while I cooed over their beautiful girl.
