Lesson 9: Maternity photography mini-class

Pregnancy can be one of the most amazing, and overwhelming, experiences of a woman’s life. And many of us want to document our body’s changes with photos we can treasure for ever.

In this mini-class, I’ll show you exactly how to take incredible photos of your bump as you grow, and the exact techniques I use to make each mama that I photograph feel amazing.

Action step:

Apply the photography 101 basics you learned in the first 8 lessons to this specific maternity stage and share one photo of your amazing bump with our growing Instagram community using #MotherlyPhotos.
