Boudoir Style Maternity Portraits
Shooting Maternity - Boudoir Style
For many portrait studios maternity sessions can either be a staple of your business, or a hassle depending on how you approach it.
As a wedding photographer I would inevitably get calls from former brides to do their maternity portraits. At first, I offered it as a service, but my head really wan't in it. Consequently my work was mediocre.
Then it dawned on me. What a perfect way to grow a portrait business. A market I can tap into to create life-long customers without even having to market it.
I started playing with styles until I had a couple of options I could offer my clients. They would come for a consultation and choose the style that best suited them. There was basically a standard bare-belly style, or what I called a boudoir style.
This boudoir style grew in popularity until it was by far the most popular of our maternity sessions.
Why? This is a special time in their lives. The intimacy that can be shown connects directly to their hearts. Only about a third of the fathers would come, so mostly we were doing moms-to-be in elegant - soft poses.
