J&J’s Maternity Session: A Face You Might Think That You Recognize…
When J&J walked through the studio doors, my eyes were as round as saucers. Because they had found our Toronto maternity photography services through an internet search, I hadn’t yet had the pleasure to meet this mom and dad-to-be in person. I looked at the magazine next to me and back to mom’s blossoming belly and wondered how the paparazzi had missed that Lucy Liu was expecting.
The mystery was solved, of course, when I discovered that J is a Lucy Liu lookalike, rather than the Hollywood star herself. Even so, it quickly became apparent that she is just as photogenic as the actress she resembles, as you can see from her beautiful maternity portraits.
Both halves of this lovely couple were a dream to work with during their pregnancy photography session – fittingly, it was almost as though they had been working in front of a camera all their lives. They followed the guidance on our “What To Wear” pages and came perfectly prepared for the photoshoot, seemed to enjoy every moment of the experience and were fantastic when it came to following direction, all of which really shows in their portraits. Capturing images of this special moment in their lives was an absolute breeze!
It’s exciting for me to shoot pregnancy portraits when I know that I will soon be meeting the newest member of the family. It doesn’t affect the images I take or the props, poses and colors we opt to include, unless mom and dad have ideas for an overall look, and I still strive to include as many choices in their gallery as I possibly can.
It does, however, create a unity and a cohesive theme that runs through both of the sessions – and beyond, if the family comes back for Baby’s First Year portraits. And for me, it brings the excitement of knowing that the little one who is almost ready to make an entrance into the world will soon come back to say hello for herself. I wonder if she’ll look like one of Charlie’s Angels too…
If your own family is preparing to grow and you would like to capture this once-in-a-lifetime moment with a Toronto maternity photography session of your own, please don’t hesitate to contact the studio to find out more!
