Maternity photography is truly a once in a lifetime event. These are not annual family pictures, or baby portraits showcasing the next milestone. Maternity photography should be amazing pieces of art. At Firefly Nights Photography, a Chicago maternity photographer, we see maternity sessions as something magical, and our pregnant clients as the most beautiful women alive. There is very little magic in our world, but the creation of life is certainly full of magic and wonder. A woman’s body is incredible, adapting to a growing baby, providing all of its nutrients. It really is amazing, and it should be celebrated.
Some women do not feel beautiful during this time. They have gained weight, maybe stretch marks and cellulite. Their feet are swollen, and they have lost their grace. But let me tell you something – you are beautiful in this moment. Because this is a very special time, you should pick a maternity photographer who can create something special, too. We encourage you to really study the pictures in a photographer’s gallery. Do you like their style? Is their lighting beautiful? Do you think each and every image is beautiful?
Are you wanting artistic nude/semi-nude images? Here is an example of artistic nudes. I love rim lighting like this. The best thing is that the opposite side is not lit, allowing you to fall into shadow, so no matter your size, it is very flattering.
Firefly Nights Photography is well known for our dramatic flowy fabric images like this:
Or maybe you prefer something outside that is more about you as a couple:
Firefly Nights Photography is a master of lighting to create certain moods as a Naperville maternity photographer. We also understand posing women, as we also offer boudoir photography through our sister site – Fiery Nights Boudoir. This means that all of our images will be flattering and beautiful. We are honored to be listed in the top Chicago maternity photographers for 2017 by Expertise.
The next part of choosing your Chicago maternity photographer should also be to look at their newborn work. It makes sense to create a relationship with a photographer to continue going forward. While we are located in Naperville, our clients come to us from all over Chicago, especially the western suburbs like Hinsdale, Oak Brook, and Elmhurst. A good quarter of our clients come from the Chicago, itself. If you travel to see us, we recommend making a day of it. Since our studio is located in the heart of downtown Naperville, there are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance (we are right around the corner from Lou Malnotti’s and across the street from Hugo’s Frog Bar).
