A few weeks back, I had mentioned that I would be doing my very first maternity photo shoot.
I have been trying to prepare for it by doing some research on the subject.
Among all the useful information I have come across, I have also realized something.
I just don't understand the concept of photographing a baby in a bowl.
or nekked on a rug.
or hanging from a silk hammock.
I wont lie.
It frustrates me.
But I guess it's because I find a connection to more real photographs.
By that I simply mean photographs of real everyday moments, not studio.
I would much rather see pictures of babies in their cradles.
or their parents bed.
or their baby blanket.
or their parents arms.
So while I may highly dislike this area of baby portraits
I still want to understand.
Why do parents like those photographs so much?
