Modern Maternity Portraits by Sally Ann Field

I turned around to change my lens and look what I see? This reflection in the van was my favorite surprise of the day.

Today’s feature is from .

Sally Ann says:

“While our session was most certainly a celebration of maternity and that cute little baby bump, I wanted to capture this future Mom and Dad as naturally as possible, doing what they do and going where they normally go. So a walk around their beloved neighborhood made for the perfect afternoon.”

Sally Ann’s Photography Tip:

Make it personal.

My clients are a modern, creative, non-traditional couple. Mom is a hairdresser, wigmaker and milliner. Dad is a skater, performer and actor. So it makes perfect sense to bring some of these things to the shoot. Familiar surroundings and having the board in tow immediately made the session more real. And if a photobomb happens… it happens. 😉

Talk to your clients and find out what makes them tick. The things that matter to them right now. And find a way to bring that to your session.

What I wouldn’t give to have photographs of my parents right before I was born, just hanging out and doing the stuff they loved. Kids today are so darned lucky.

The bump.
Pretty alley.
The kiss.

Sally Ann used a Canon 5D Mark3 with a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM + Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens to capture these images.
