Nicole & Andy // Alternative Maternity Shoot

Sometimes it’s nice to take some time away from weddings, and photograph something a little different. Nicole and Andy’s first baby was  due in two weeks at the time of this shoot. I spent the afternoon with them capturing this amazing time in their lives.

I’ll admit, when I first started taking photos, shooting weddings was not something that really appealed to me… Probably because I’d seen way too many ‘dipping of the bride’ and ‘Toyota jump’ bridal party photos. After photographing a few weddings, I realised I could just do things my own way – and hoped that people would like it.

I’m now starting to learn the same thing about ‘family’ photos. They don’t have to be taken inside a fancy studio, like many are used to seeing. I can photograph these in a way that feels right to me, and hope that people like it too.
