Pregnancy announcement photos have changed in the last few years. I don’t think most of our parents or grandparents hired a photographer to do a professional pregnancy announcement photoshoot. In fact, the thought of this probably still seems strange to a lot of people. However, times have changed and the pregnancy announcement is just another way to document a special and exciting time in your life.
I may have originally started out as a wedding photographer, but as time past I found a lot of my couples returning as their families grew. The pregnancy announcement is a way for you to celebrate the baby you’re about to meet, celebrate your love for each other, and of course, share that enthusiasm with everyone you know. In fact, the entire process of growing your family can no be documented.
- Gender Reveal
- Baby Shower
- Maternity Shoot
- Birth Documentation
- Newborn Session
- First Birthday
- And sooo much more…
While some couples choose to select their photographers based on their specialty, others prefer to work with the ones that make them comfortable. There is a familiarity of having a family photographer that gets to know you and appears every so often to document the milestones of your life.
Choosing a location is very much up to you. You’ll have a better idea of what you’re physically able to handle during each stage of pregnancy. Things to consider include walking distance required. Bluffers Beach for example is a gorgeous waterfront location with tall cliffs as your backdrop. However, it’s a good 10min walk from the nearest parking lot and bathroom.
James Gardens was the location for this announcement. This particular session was performed during COVID using new safety measures. To learn more about these protocols, check out my COVID Protocols page.
