As an Italian maternity photographer working in London, it can be hard to please some friends in Italy. But you can’t say no to an old dear friend, can you? 🙂
So I went to Italy and took some photos of her beautiful pregnant belly. This is actually quite an old session, back in 2015, I just never blogged about it.
Being pregnant with the second child is a very different experience than being pregnant with the first one. Of course I cannot really talk as I just have a girl, but talking with my clients give me quite a nice picture. With the first pregnancy, you are kind of a princess, a delicate flower that is careful of what to eat, you’ve been told not to lift heavy stuff, to rest, to pamper yourself . . . All good things that probably you would dream to do with a second pregnancy, especially if you have a busy toddler.
It was quite tricky to get this little boy to stay still! It may look calm and well behaved but we had to hide small cars near the belly so he could get near it and touch it. It’s a lot of work to get a simple photo when there is a toddler around, but it’s quite funny as well. And I always love the challenge! But that’s the beauty of the second pregnancy. Having maternity photos with your first child is priceless. Especially making him part of something important, involving him in simple choices.
Here some of the photos we took on the day.
The best time for maternity photography is around 32-35 week. While you are expecting, it is also the perfect time to look into newborn photography, so you are prepared and you have the chance to meet and get to know your photographer.
