All I ask of my families that I photograph, is that they are themselves.
Yes, it may seem stiff and a bit awkward at the start, but I assure you that every family can share a laugh and some cuddles. Family is fun and full of love, so that is being themselves.
It makes my job so easy at times.
I don't know many people who enjoy those last few weeks of pregnancy. Particularly when it's not your first. Your body is hurting. Your body is puffy or bloated. Your body is being asked to care for your unborn baby while still looking after your older children. It's tough.
It can also be tough wanting to get in front of a camera lens. You aren't feeling your most attractive but you are in anticipation of what is coming and getting to meet your new baby.
So while it's tough, I still recommend get capture the moment. Your family is about to change so capturing the pregnancy and your family at this stage is special and unique. You will look back and remember what things were like 'before' while still having the opportunity to spend time with your family and enjoy each other.
