I have been following this family with my camera for quite some time now. Full disclosure, Sarah is my sister but I am so grateful that she and her husband have embraced my photography and let me just do my thing during their sessions. I did a maternity session with them for their first child but my style and artistic vision has changed since then and they were very happy to accommodate this. They have followed my journey and always been accepting of my enthusiasm when I ask if I can photograph them at various times.
A maternity session aims to document your life as it is before the arrival of your baby be it your first, second, third or fourth. We work together to determine what you would like captured and then on the day, I am a fly on the wall as that unfolds. In the gallery below you can see that I don’t exactly focus on the ‘baby bump’ in a lot of the shots but it is evident and a part of the story the images are telling.
Sarah and Danusha wanted to have the preparation, such as washing the new clothes and preparing Big Brother, as well as a regular family activity of a trip to the park when there was just one child to catch at the bottom of the slide.
