by Somya Sood Baby, Kids, Maternity, Family Photography, Delhi N

Having a baby, and being a mother can be overwhelming, and also pleasant at the same time. As a new mother, it is natural to want to document the first phase of their lives every step of the way.It is usually ideal to get good shots earlier during your pregnancy, as opposed to later, as posing and moving around can be difficult in the later months. Maternity photography is a big expenditure, and one should research well before choosing a photographer.


Newborn photography is complicated, as it revolves around the baby’s schedule and most importantly, comfort during the newborn and maternity photography session. There are plenty of options for maternity photographers in DelhiNoida, Gurugram or Faridabad, but before shortlisting and hiring them, it will be beneficial to go through some of the tips and points in this article.


Attire For The Photoshoot:


It is very important to be dressed comfortably for this occasion. For the best results, it is better to coordinate with the hired maternity photographer in Delhi.


Maxi Dresses work well for the mother during a photoshoot, in terms of comfort and ease of movement. The dress will emphasize the baby bump and hide all the other problems areas. Textured fabrics should be favored and accessories should be limited to chunky necklaces as this combination is flattering for expecting mothers.


Fitted dresses work wonders for the pregnant body. While a lot of mothers are conscious of their baby bump when the dress is well fitted, it offsets the bump well and is great for photos. Solids work well and should be favored, above large and distracting patterns.


If traditional clothing is what is required, you can always opt for traditional saris or even lehengas, which are not only comfortable but also beautiful, timeless and draped in creative ways to enhance your pregnancy.


To shoot a newborn baby and the mother, depending on the location of the shoot, the mother can dress accordingly. While it is true that softer colors are great when shooting the baby with the mother, if bold colors go well with the background, it should be the option that is chosen.

Points To Remember Before The Shoot:


The hired photographer should not use flash for lighting and just go with natural light. Natural lighting is the best environment for an expecting mother and newborns as well, as the soft light enhances the best qualities for both.


It is best to conduct the shoot with the baby within the first ten days of the baby being born. It will also be advantageous to ensure that the baby is wearing something to cover the head as forceps births can result in a slightly misshapen head. The baby should be well-fed and sleepy during the session so that the shoot runs smoothly. Before conducting the photoshoot, make certain that the temperature is warm enough for the baby to be relaxed.


Photography is an art and newborn and maternity photography is probably one of the most rewarding of them all. There are many professional photographers in Gurugram, Noida and Delhi, who are willing, but researching before hiring can ensure that you have the best maternity photographer in Delhi.
