I have ummed and awwed about every different photographer there is for a pregnant lady and decided on nothing.
I'm very picky when it comes to photography.
I've been pondering maternity photos...after much research decided on NO because as much as I like pretty belly photos I think those pictures of the husband with his hands around the woman cuddling her belly are cheesy. SORRY IF YOU LOVE THOSE. It's just not our thing. And am I really going to blow up and frame a picture of my belly? I'm thinking probably not. So I had decided no right up until last week when my midwife made it clear that she thought I had a pretty belly and should REALLY get it photographed...now I'm back to undecided because how many bellies does a midwife see? Seems like if your midwife tells you that your belly is pretty you HAVE to have it photographed. Still undecided and rapidly running out of time for this one.
I've pondered birth photography since I was 22. Sometimes I see AMAZING stuff and I'm like OMG I WANT THAT but every time I go hunting for a birth photographer in the area I'm met with...meh. Nobody's work is really jumping out at me and making me want to spend the money on them AND have them in the room with me while I'm in labor and pushing a baby out of my hoohah.
And then there's newborn photographers. I knew I was going to do this it just hasn't been at the forefront of my mind lately and I kept forgetting about it. Especially because I was still looking for BIRTH photographers and you know birth comes before a newborn so I figured I should make a decision on that one first. But all of a sudden it's like SHIT we need to get this figured out NOW! So, last week I went on a mission to find myself a newborn photographer. I was searching and searching, getting more and more discouraged when VOILA!
I found her.
I found my photographer.
Look at these babes:
And just like that DECISION MADE.
I've hired my photographer.
Anyone else hiring a newborn photographer? Or maternity? Or birth photographer?
