Take my hand, let us walk together into this unknown.
Into the light, these three hearts will conquer all.
I had the pleasure of doing a maternity shoot for Jenny & Ed the other week, We decided to use the New forest as it is full of life! What can i say, Jenny & Ed are completely wonderful, we had such a fun time on this shoot, They understood me when i talked about light... which was A LOT! they trusted in my vision and they embraced the experience to the fullest.
I have started to really really enjoy maternity shoots, I have done a few this year and i think they are wonderful, purely because of the fact we are capturing a part of life that is so natural, it is one of the most natural things that humans have left that hasn't turned digital!
The strength of a woman and the dedication of a man, but together as one whole.
This is what i see in every shoot i do, i love it.
Choosing a location is so important to a maternity shoot, it really needs to reflect how you feel about your pregnancy, how you feel as a person, your link to the natural world. For Jenny and Ed, it was a location surrounded by trees, We loved the link between the ever-growing nature and the development of a human baby. Both ever so natural and in the same context.
It worked perfectly. and we chose a time that the light was just perfection.
Most of the trees around us would have been over 100 years old, they would have seen many individuals walk past them through the years, I'm glad that they got to witness this part of Jenny and Ed's Journey.
For now, keep it nature.
